Contact a member of the Minn. Assn for Justice--they give free consults. A lot depends on where the tooth is--and if it had a crack before.

Yes, and perhaps you will not have to sue and just settle out of court. Of course McDonalds may contest what happened and if so it is your burden to prove that is how you broke your tooth. You should consult an atty to help you.

Q: How long does a plantif have to respond to the filing of a products liability suit?
