At Karikas & Kasaris, P.A., we have represented numerous victims of foreign objects in food with injuries such as fractured teeth, mouth and esophageal lacerations and chemical burns. If you have been injured due to a foreign object in food be sure to keep the foreign object, as well as any leftovers. The leftovers may contain additional foreign objects or other evidence showing that the object was not placed in the food after it was purchased or served. You should also inform the store or restaurant where the food was purchased, as well as your local Health Department of the incident. If necessary, seek medical attention for your injuries as soon as possible. If your injuries are visible, periodic photographs will be helpful to show how your injuries progressed.
If you are injured by a foreign object in food it is also important to keep all proof of your purchase, keep a journal to record the progress and effects of your injury and to document your losses. For more details, please review our instructions on what to do if you suspect food poisoning.
