I found a dead cockroach in my pancakes after i already ate half of it !!!!i ve been throwing up all day !!the manager apologized to me and didn’t charge me .i m buying medicine to stop the vomit ,can I get the restaurant to pay for those medicine because I don’t have insurance?
First, call the Department of Health and report the matter. If you have not contracted some type of virus; and your injuries do not rise to the level of requiring emergency room or other medical care; then your option would be to file a claim in small claims court or simply give the receipts for the medication purchased to the restaurant and ask them to reimburse you for the cost. These types of claims may be difficult to prove, and if you have not sought medical care, the value of the claim may be substantially less than the cost of pursuing the matter . If you need medical care, conslut with an attorney immediately. Best of luck!
To supplement the excellent responses you have already received: Keep track of your condition and medical care and expenses. I suspect that the disgust of the cockroach is behind your vomiting, but it's possible that your pancakes were contaminated by insecticide. I presume that you contracted no microbe. Hey, I ate at IHoP this morning; I'm glad that I read this afterwards.
