Choking on Foriegn Object in Food

Hello - I ordered a meal from Costa Vida and on my second bite I began to choke. My parents witnessed the whole thing and were about to call 911 ... I had to dislodge the object which turned out to be a rather large rubber band ... My throat was soar for several days and it scared me to death. The restaurant has assumed liability and has instructed me to speak with their insurance company - what kind of case do you think I have? THANKS

I have handled many cases similar to yours. Since you have no medical bills you only have a claim for your pain and suffering. There is not a whole lot a value to the claim and the insurance company will make likely make a nuisance value settlement offer. Likley less than $1,000.00
