I found chewed gum in my soup at a restaurant I can I take legal action
1 Answer from Attorneys
Sure you can. Gum in soup is pretty gross. You've got at least two problems, however.:
First, the burden will be on you to prove the the gum was in the soup when it was served to you. Did you take pictures? Video? Did you immediately notify an employee or manager? Fill out an incident report? Did a restaurant employee admit liability? Did you save the gum?
Second, what are your damages? Hiring an attorney and bringing a lawsuit can be expensive. Do these costs outweigh your damages? Did you eat the gum? Did you get sick? Did you go to a hospital and incur hospital bills? If you didn't seek medical treatment because of the gum, your damages might be less than it costs to pay the filing fee in order to file a lawsuit.
