Client Bites A Rock In Her Chinese Food

Attorney Daniel VillalobosAuthor: Attorney Daniel Villalobos

Our client, a middle aged mother of two, was enjoying some chewy chow mein, pan seared fried rice and rich flavored wonton soup with noodles when all of the sudden she felt a sharp pain in her mouth and jaw. She spit the food out of her mouth and immediately saw blood. Fearing the worst she immediately screamed for help from the manager. The manager came over and saw blood dripping down our client’s mouth and face. Seconds later, our client realized she had something very heavy and hard in her mouth. She spit out a decent size rock that was in her food. As the rock shot from her mouth and into her hand she once again felt something hard and heavy in her mouth. Thinking she had another rock in her mouth she spat out the second object into her hand. However the second time around it was not a rock, it was part of her back molar tooth. In complete shock and awe and fearing she may have caused serious injuries to her mouth and jaw, she called an ambulance. Once she got to the hospital, she called the Hollywood Food Poisoning Attorneys Dell and Schaefer. Given the fact that our firm specializes in food poisoning cases and tooth knock out cases, our firm quick took the case and began the process of zealously representing her interests.

Client Undergoes Medical Care

After being released from the hospital, our firm referred the client to a dentist who specializes in accident cases. The dentist was able identify which took was broken and devised a treatment plan to repair the broken molar. Normally if the front tooth breaks a doctor can simply do a bonding procedure. However, back molars are not fixed as easily. Treatment for a back molar can consist of tooth removal, a crown, or a root canal. In this case, the client fortunately did not need to surgically remove the tooth. The dentist was able to install a porcelain crown.

Dell and Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement

After the crown was installed our firm filed a bodily injury demand against the insurance company for the Chinese Restaurant. Our firm sought monetary damages for bodily injury, pain and suffering, disfigurement, disability, mental anguish, past and future medical expenses, and lost wages. After a lengthy negotiation, our firm settled the case for $30,000. Our client was absolutely thrilled that she could win $30,000 for a broken tooth case. Call us for a free consultation.
