Q: Can I sue a fast food company for the after effects of an order?
Yesterday I had made an order online using ubereats to get food and in my order they had not added a food item that I asked for in which i was highly disappointed in. I had also asked for a frozen dessert in which was an option that shows in my reciept that i ordered, but I was not given. And I had a drink that felt too much like I was drinking more carbonation then soda which then made me feel nauseous and gave me acid reflux and I spent the entire morning entering the bathroom as a result. I am emotionally stressed and don't think i can trust to eat there anymore. Is possible to sue a fast food company for these reasons.
A: You may sue someone for anything but you wouldn't be awarded anything under the circumstances you have outlined, or it would be so low--what you paid--that it wouldn't be worth it.
A: Anyone can sue another party for many different forms of damages. But it's important to keep in mind that attorneys who handle injury cases generally work on a contingency basis. For that reason, they closely examine the magnitude and permanence of injuries.
