Whether you have visited a drive through for a beverage, had a pizza delivery or dined in at a super Buckhead hot spot, food poisoning can seriously affect your health, especially for pregnant women and the elderly. Many harmful types of bacteria, viruses, parasites and toxins can be consumed from food sources.

Restaurant Injury Precautions
There are precautions patrons can take to avoid restaurant injury at Atlanta food service establishments, with food and beverages served by cooks, waiters and waitresses. Attorney Nick Schnyder believes it is important, if at all possible, to avoid putting yourself in harm's way. If ordering meat, check to make sure it is cooked all the way through and served warm. If there are any foreign objects you discover or choke on, immediately report and return it. You can check to be sure your utensils are cleaned and, if not, ask for new ones. Avoiding broken chairs or seating is important, and you can ask for another space in which to dine. Should a physical fight or assault and battery break out on the premises, it would be wise to leave or get away from the area to avoid being harmed. If an injury does take place, ask to speak to a manager or owner so a written report can be documented that you were injured. If no medical assistance is provided by the establishment, seek medical care on your own. Get any witness contact information in case you need to establish a first hand account of what took place, in addition to the name of your server or who you conversed with. Contact or have someone else contact emergency medical assistance by dialing 911 and the Atlanta police department should you need them on hand to file a report for any criminal activity.
