About a month ago, I was at a chain restaurant and bit down on what I thought was ice from my soda but it turned out to be glass. Before I realized it I swallowed some. I told the manager and headed to the emergency room. There were no cuts or bleeding in my mouth. I had to be put to sleep and examined, but there was no internal bleeding. I had blood in my bowel movement, but they said that should go away in a week which it did. The doctor said that although they didn't find anything there was no way to be sure it couldn't cause internal problems in the future. Insurance covered my medical bills. I was offered $525. Should I take it? Should I hire an attorney? What if I have problems in the future? How much is my claim worth?
