My friend are a Wendy's burger and then realized it was half cooked. She reported it to them, but later that night had a really bad episode of colitis. She was sick with it all night and apparently ended up dehydrated. She fell twice and injured her arm. She was too weak to walk and was taken by ambulance to the er. She was kept there for several days before being transferred to rehab. She's been there almost a month now, getting pt. They stopped pt on the arm quickly and ordered an Mri. She gets the results this week. She's in a lot of pain from this arm injury and can barely use it. It's her dominant hand. She's paying someone to care for her cats. If she ends up having surgery she will be in rehab longer. All this from half cooked food. I myself are at this same Wendy's today and my burger was also half cooked.
Your friend may have a cause of action if the medical doctors state within a reasonable degree of medical probably that your friend had food poisoning or that the colitis was a result of eating the half cooked hamburger, resulting in dehydration which resulted in the fall. You will need to have the medical records reviewed, and prove the food was half cooked, who received the report at Wendy's and determine if any reports were made there. Really need to consult a personal injury attorney.
