    Answered . Proofing a case without the key piece of evidence may present an obstacle. Always maintain your evidence. The fact that you went for immediate urgent care should eliminate the issue. Your main hurdle as far as legal representation will likely be your injury.; which fortunately will likely pass. Do consult with local and qualified counsel. Feel better.

    Answered . Keep the receipt. Too bad you likely did not retain the evidence. Report to the local health department. As far as case value, fortunately you will likely recover quickly. I'm not going to ask how you could eat more than a half of a bite of raw chicken, but their insurance company will. Emotional distress? Here's more: BLUE LINK BELOW

    Answered . You should consult with a personal injury attorney for a complete analysis of your situation. Posts on this site make it difficult to give you a detailed answer.

If the case proceeds to trial, a skilled attorney can determine how to prove the case. The attorney should have an idea if the case can proceed once a complete analysis has been conducted.

    Answered . I'd stay away from buffets. They are typically not sanitary, and people tend to eat larger portions than they should, which is not healthy.

    Answered . The pathogen (the bug that made you sick) might be detected I n your stool or vomitus, so you may wish to preserve a sample for testing if you are serious about taking this case forward. The ER report may also be helpful as might be the manager's refusal (if she refused) to give your raw chicken sample back. Contact a food safety attorney for best results.

    Answered . You don't necessarily need the raw chicken to prove that fact. You can draw upon other evidence to prove it such as your own testimony, the testimony of those at the restaurant that responded to you, your receipt, your kid's testimony, and your medical records.
