Tucson, AZ asked in Products Liability, Personal Injury and Small Claims for Arizona

Q: Broken tooth had to be removed on Product from a Grocery store

I purchased a grocery store pitted olive salad that they process in the store and source the Olives from another company. They investigated it and said that in the ingredients small print on packaging it says may have small pieces of pit or pits. They said they would give be my initial dental cost of $750 and a $50.00 gift card. They said I would have to go after the source olive company. I have not cashed check or gift card. My total cost to fix and replace tooth is approx 5,000. I asked them for that and they said this was all they could do. Is this the case or do I have options?

A: An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Unless you're being presented with the opportunity of going to arbitration, one option is looking into whether the matter falls within the limits of Arizona small claims court. Another option is reaching out to law firms that handle injury cases. Good luck
