What are Fast Food Lawsuits?

Individuals can sue fast restaurants for many different reasons. Fast food restaurants are usually franchised units or owned outright by larger corporate chains, providing a financial base that a person filing a lawsuit can target to recover damages. Fast food restaurants have large customer bases and employ many people, so they are vulnerable to a greater number of lawsuits than smaller or independently owned restaurants.

What Are Common Fast Food Lawsuit Claims?

Product liability claims are extremely common in fast food lawsuits. Since fast food restaurants serve so many people and deal in such a high volume of business each day, the risks for serving food that has been accidentally contaminated is much higher than it is for small independently owned restaurants.

In some cases, food products have been found to contain foreign objects, dangerous or hazardous materials such as glass, or unsanitary items such as band aids or hair. Vegetarians have sued fast food restaurants because they discovered animal products were used in the cooking oil of otherwise vegetarian foods.

Fast food restaurants can also face claims over food allergies. Ingredient lists must be comprehensive to allow people with allergies to avoid consuming foods that will make them sick.
