I was on vacation, living on a very healthy diet. I decided to grab a McChicken sandwhich my last night in Banff, and I woke up 5 hours later with extreme food poisoning.
I was vomiting for so long in the morning the next day my chest and stomach were all bruised up from the inside. I was also Incontinent. Never been sicker. In fact, I was hospitalized as well to get my fluids back to normal.
Since I had to spend an extra day in Banff I was late getting home and since I missed a day of work, I was fired. It was a contract job worth about $12,000 in wages. I attained my hospital records, kept my McDonald's receipt and contacted a lawyer before phoning mcdonalds with my complaint. I also asked for some compensation in the neighborhood of 12k.
When they FINALLY got back to me, the lady said food poisoning does not occur for 48 hours after you eat something. I call ***, I am a healthy person who craps every 6 hours or so depending what I eat, and mcdonalds tends to go through even faster. She said that I could take them to court and I would lose because they already set the standard of food poisoning. WELL THIS ISNT RIGHT!
HEALTHY PEOPLE'S DIGETIVE SYSTEM WORK DIFFERENTLY THAN THAT! As far as I'm concerned they still owe me for my suffering and job loss, and I will never return to one of their stores.
Monetary Loss: $15000.
