Metal found in wrap .. Part 2

I posted yesterday but the situation has changed.. I ate a chicken wrap from Williams Coffee Pub 3 days ago and bit into a 2cm piece of metal which was sharp on both ends and covered in charcoal. I contacted the store manager who offered me a refund but took the metal stating they need it to figure out where it came from. Luckily I took a photo of the wrap and metal. I proceeded to contact the head office who said they would reimburse me for any costs associated with my injuries. I had a cut on the inside of my mouth and had to get a tetanus shot. I went to the dentist and am now facing a 8000$ dental surgery including bone grafts. The ins. co. wants to know how much I expect for compensation.. Any suggestions? One lawyer stated not accept less than $30,000 incl medical bills

Get the best personal injury attorney in your area who has an expertise in dental injuries. There are several excellent PI attorneys on the AVVO Find a Lawyer feature. The attorney's fees are generally contingent on obtaining a recovery for you. One problem with this case is that the need for bone grafts and dental surgery can have been a preexisting condition due to gradual erosion of bone in the jaw over time. An attorney will have to prove with dental experts that the cut made by the metal piece caused the necessity for this expensive surgery.
I am sorry that you experienced this injury. Be thankful that you did not swallow the sharp metal piece . I am going to look at my food, expecially wraps, more carefully, after what has happened to other people.

Consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area. Without the details and an analysis from your doctor that the surgery is causally related to the metal you have a questionable case.
