My son ate chicken and almost swollowed a pin like metal with a curved end. He was able to grab it at the back of his throat before it went down. His stomach started hurting after we left the restaurant so we went to the ER to check as he was scared that he might have swallowed something. His X-ray was clear and so as his throat, no injuries. Can we ask the restaurant to reimburse us for hospital co-pay?
I’m glad your son was not hurt. You can ask for reimbursement of bills not paid by your insurance. If you reported the incident right when it happened, your chances of getting something ate increased.
