What would you suggest I do now for my injury? 11 Answers as of June 30, 2015

I bit into a rusty nail. So far I have contacted the restaurant, the restaurant headquarters and a dentist. I did not give the nail back to the restaurant.

Gather copies of your chart from the dentist and any other health care providers, and your medical bills. Schedule an appointment with an experienced personal injury lawyer and ask him or her to evaluate the case. Consider also lost wages (or lost vacation time), the permanency of any injury, the extent of your pain, any pleasurable activities you may have lost temporarily or permanently.

Every claim or law suit has two basic elements: Liability (fault) and damages (how much). Many times a person may have a good claim but the damages are insufficient to interest a lawyer in taking your case. If the damages are modest you may wish to sue in Small Claims Court, where no lawyers are allowed and the damages are limited to $10,000.

    See your dentist and get any damage fixed. Send the bill to the restaurant's insurance company. Don't expect much additional for the fright and horror of having a nail in your sandwich. Stuff happens, and it is too expensive to think about going to court, even if jurors cared about such an ordinary event. Pay your dentist yourself. You may need his testimony or an affidavit.

    What I would suggest you do is to call a personal injury lawyer in your area. There are many questions that will need to be addressed before action can be taken. The best way to do that is through a personal interview. Consultations are free.

    Well, you never mentioned whether or not you sustained an injury. If you did, then document it. Get whatever medical treatment is required, and get copies of your records and the bills. You could try to negotiate a settlement yourself. Don't spend the money yet, and don't plan on an early retirement.
