Negligence – Highly Allergic Plaintiff Is Served Dairy Products and Suffers Extreme Reaction
Plaintiff went to a restaurant that advertised selling products without dairy, meat, and egg products. Our client
has an allergy to dairy and was served products that had indicated on their packaging that they had been made on
shared equipment with milk and were not suitable for dairy allergies. This caused our client to have an allergic
reaction to the product moments later in a Target, and she had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital.
As a result of the negligence, the plaintiff became violently ill, including her throat closing, coughing, lip
swelling, dry heaving, painful diarrhea, and hives on her face. An EpiPen was administered, but upon arrival at
the hospital, she was still experiencing stomach pain, wheezing, hives, and red and yellow blotches on her skin.
