Yes. I just settled a very similar case.............................

Yes, from your description you have grounds for a legal claim against the restaurant. When you buy food, you have a right to rely on the food being safe. Your reliance caused you to become injured due to their violation of duty. However, it is important that you have legal representation because the restaurant's insurance company protects their interests, not yours. I recommend retaining an attorney who has experience in these matters and whose practice includes the geographic area involved.
The answer is yes, you can sue. What you will be able to prove, and how much you might be able to get is always a question, however. Speak to a personal injury attorney.

You can bring a suit but damages are not likely to be very large. However, we have suit pending against Dunkin Donuts with similar facts.
I suggest you obtain dental care as is appropriate and then have a meeting with a local personal injury attorney. You have quantifiable injuries and thus a viable claim in my opinion.

You should contact a competent attorney immediately. Most of us in this area of practice give free consultations and take on cases for a contingency fee. Contact a competent attorney regarding this situation as soon as possible to preserve your rights.
