Our client became violently ill after consuming mussels at a well-known chain restaurant. She spent several days in the hospital, where she was diagnosed with dehydration and renal failure. The insurance company for the restaurant disputed the claim on the basis that lab results did not show evidence of E. Coli, salmonella, or any other bacteria. We argued that something in the food clearly made her sick, as she had eaten nothing else that day. Also, she had complained to her waiter that the mussels didn’t taste right and had sent them back. Fortunately, we were able to settle the matter without court intervention.
