If it would be likely the hair was accidentally included in your order of fries, then it is not likely you may prove malicious intent to harm you. And I must agree that it is the cost of frivilous litigation that pushes costs up for products we all enjoy when their makers are forced to defend themselves against what the court more and more frequently deems "frivolous lawsuits", on which most reasonable judges frown harshly at best and vehemently oppose at worst. My Mom and Dad always told me, "That's more protein for free!" If in fact you ingest an impurity that does not kill you, it typically makes you stronger by strengthening your auto-immune system. We are indeed a nation of opportunists.

Yes. You could sue for emotional distress! You will need to show a physical component, though, such as an ulcer.

Sorry to say, but I work at a McDonalds and I would find that pretty stupid for someone to want to sue over. Just call the main office and complain, the will fix the problem and you will probably be owed free food or a refund for something or what not.

You could get a life and stop tying up the courts and tax payers money at the same time raising the cost of products over stupid litigation.

You could sue, but for what purpose? How have you been injured? By the way, fast food companies have test labs that allow them to tell if someone planted the foreign object. Proceed at your own risk.

I have a better idea...just go to the counter and tell them you got a hair in your fries. They will replace them on the spot.

Hey, Retards..... the question wasnt

*is it morally wrong and potentially detrimental to food costs of mcdonalds if i sue them for a hair in my fry?*

it was

*Can you file a lawsuit if you get a hair in your fries at McDonalds?*

stop wasting peoples time with answers that are off topic and are matter of opinion.

The is Yes.

how did i come to this conclusion? (fact) mcdonalds was sued for someone being burned with coffee that was too hot. (fact) unclean hair can carry bacteria therefore potentially harmful.

For more information contact a lawyer to discuss the proper route to take concerning what exactly you want and wether it is obtainable.

my monkey had a similar problem. i know the pain and frustration you must be going through. first find a group of friends who will be able to support you through this tough time. monkey generally lose a hair after drinking Pepsi, so dont feed it anymore Pepsi, only Red Bull or lemonade if it really craves fizzy drink.

Can you file a lawsuit if you find hair in your food at a casino?

Actually Casinos are self insured so the best you can do is file a claim with that particular Nation. No. You cannot sue for something like that unless you can show personal injury or actual damage. Hi ! See herehttp://bspioix.my-place.us/images Technically, you canfile a lawsuit for almost any reason you can imagine. There is no gate keeper at the courthouse to review the merits of each individual suit. Of course, that does not mean that the lawsuit will be successful or even survive a few months. Whether one can file a lawsuit against a casino does not depend on whether the casino is self-insured or has a liability insurance policy. Those factors merely will impact the casino's ability to pay a judgment or reach a settlement. To succeed on a claim of finding a hair in casino food, you will have to prove the casino's negligence and, more difficult in this case, that you were damaged or physically injured by the hair. This seems almost certain to fail.Filing weak or bogus lawsuits may present the risk of sanctions either from the court or an imposition of legal costs and attorney's fees from the winning party. Each state has different laws. Check with an attorney licensed to practice law in your state adn do not rely exclusvely on my opinion.

Can you file a lawsuit if you find hair in your food at sonic?

Technically, yes, you could - but, the first thing any good attorney will ask is, "what are your damages?". That doesn't mean "I was emotionally scarred by finding hair in my food." Did you become ill enough to incur medical expenses, lose time at work, things like that. Humans have hair all over their bodies & no matter how clean a restaurant, these things can still happen. I can't imagine a court or judge that would appreciate this claim as a true tort & not a case of clogging the system with situations that occur on a daily basis to humans. Yes but it would be a difficult case, you would have to build a lawsuit that established that it was in fact one of the employees hair follicles in your food, rather than your own. The hair in question must be proven to have come from Sonic and nowhere else. This could be done through means of DNA testing for example. You also have to take into consideration the damages you seek to receive, one wouldn't want to incur all the costs of filing a lawsuit and taking it to court to receive an award that amounts to the cost of the food that the hair was in.

How can you keep your hair straight and healthy?

Well, if you want to keep it straight you would think to flat iron it. But that just fries your hair, which is unhealthy. If you have a ceramic hair straightener and heat pertectant spray it wont hurt you hair so bad. Just put on the spray before you use your hot hair tools. Hope this helped!

Can you file a lawsuit if your hair falls out after going to a high end salon?

Absolutely, if there is clear evidence that the salon did something which created the problem. The best choice of venue would be small claims court, as that is the easiest to file and usually the quickest in obtaining a hearing. The maximum amount of damages that can be awarded in SC is approx. $3,000-$5,000 depending upon state law. The clerk or administrator of the court of jurisdiction can inform the person of the proper filing procedures (but will not render legal advice). The plaintiff should be prepared to present evidence to substantiate the injury charges, such as pictures, witnesses and documents pertaining to medical care.
