    Answered . Yes you can and you do need to file a report with the restaurant and see if there were any other people who got food poisoning as well. I had a case about 15 years ago against Taco Bell. You should contact an attorney in Montgomery.

    Answered . Take care of your symptoms first. If your injuries required medical treatment, you may have a viable suit.

(A jury is not likely to award anything substantial based on pain and suffering and discomfort alone if there is no special damages (such as medical expenses or lost earnings) of any significance.) If this is the case, present your claim to the managment of the restaurant. They probably will provide you with some sort of compensation, such as discount coupons or gift certificates.
