My mother and I were at a well known stir-fry restaurant and explained her food allergies to our wait staff. He declined bringing out sauces from the back, saying the likelihood of cross-contamination was minimum. He also said he would inform the chef. Additionally, he neglected to inform us that the restaurant does NOT recommend the build-it buffet for customers with allergies.
My mom had to be rushed to the hospital by ambulance after using both of her epi-pens. Every allergic reaction is worse than the previous, and this one rebounded the next day. She lost a day at work and time with me, not to mention upcoming hospital and ambulatory bills. Would it be wise for my mom to find a lawyer for guidance? Can the restaurant be trusted to settle this and pay her bills?
