Choking in Restaurants

When you and your family visit a restaurant for a meal, you trust that the food is prepared correctly and is free from any conditions that may harm you. However, if a certain type of food is not made in the correct manner, choking hazards may be present and you may be at risk for serious injuries, such as suffocation and asphyxia.

Chefs, line cooks, and other members of restaurant staff have a professional responsibility to provide a reasonable duty of care to all patrons. That includes making sure that all of their food is safe to consume at all times. When this is not done, you may be able to bring the guilty party to court for possible financial compensation.

Choking and Liability

The following circumstances may be considered negligent and may require legal action:

  • Failure to administer CPR or call for emergency medical help if a patron is choking
  • Failure to remove a bone from a meat product
  • Failure to remove foreign objects from a certain food product, such as a string or piece of plastic

If you or someone you love has been injured due to the reckless behavior of a kitchen staff member, you deserve justice under the law. By hiring an experienced attorney, you can help increase your chances of a favorable result in court and the funds to which you are entitled.
