If you can show you were damaged by McDonald's food then you can always pursue some kind of claim. Go see a personal injury lawyer for advice and to see if you have a case.
Most personal injury lawyers handle food poisoning cases if they are serious enough. Avvo has a great lawyer finder tool to locate an attorney close to your home.
You could, but proving such claims are always a little tricky. You might be better off calling the district manager and raising your concerns with him/her.
No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any AVVO Q&A with Keith Petrochko. Anything posted on AVVO, or anywhere online, may be used as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding.
Yes, you can if we can show the store actually gave you food poisoning. Generally, more than one person complains about food poisoning from the location; however, people often confuse food poisoning with other illnesses or improperly identify the vector.

Food poisoning cases are difficult cases. A lawyer will look into such a case only if the damage ( injury) is severe, such as multiple days in the hospital. An ER visit alone would not induce most personal injury lawyers to take the case. Have you reported this incident to McDonald's ? You might be able to handle this on your own.

The food poisoning cases that I have had success with are salmonella cases where numerous people got sick and the health department investigated. It would be worth your time to discuss with a local personal injury to get his or her thoughts.
You may have a claim against McDonalds, however your injuries must be severe to the extent that will warrant pursuing a claim, as it will be costly. The cost of litigating such a claim may outweigh any recovery that you can obtain. You can always try to contact McDonalds directly and try to handle a claim yourself. Best of luck and I hope you feel better.
