For nearly a decade, “Charles” (not a real person) had taken his family to the same buffet restaurant every Friday evening. It was a great way to spend some quality time with his wife and son, where they could unwind and exchange stories about their busy weeks at work or school.
The night after one recent visit to the buffet, however, Charles’ son complained of stomach aches. Charles had noticed a little discomfort of his own, which he thought to be an odd coincidence. Early Sunday morning was when everything fell apart. Charles awoke with sense of overwhelming nausea and rushed to the bathroom, only to find his son already there, vomiting. He barely made it to the downstairs bathroom in time.
That morning, Charles and his son were both delirious and vomiting regularly. His wife, fortunately unaffected, drove them to the hospital. Both were diagnosed as suffering from E. coli, and only one common source made sense: the buffet restaurant.
While Charles recovered in just a few days, his son remained in the hospital for two weeks, enduring frequent bouts of vomiting and diarrhea. Doctors even expressed concern that his kidneys could fail – or at the very least, that they could be permanently damaged.
While he was at the hospital, Charles learned of three more cases of food poisoning that had been admitted, all linked to the restaurant. Furious, he filed suit against the restaurant to try to seek compensation for his family’s suffering and the time he had missed from work.
His son’s significant hospital bill, and the possibility of future medical costs, worried Charles greatly.
