need to know if I can get in trouble for buying a domain with a name of a restaurant within the domain. I want to build a bad review site about them for a metal screw that was found in the food we ordered and my daughter almost ate it. The restaurant sent my email to them over to there risk management company and they are only offering $150... I was asking for more... anyhow I want to do something about this asap and let others know to beware of there food.. So would I get in trouble building a site about this with there name in the domain?
:BELOW IS WHAT I SAID TO THE OTHER LAWYER I SPOKE TO ON HERE ABOUT A MONTH AGO.
Hi, I wanted to find out if I could sue a well known steakhouse for getting a meal for our 1 year old daughter that had a sharp metal screw within the food its self. Or do some sort of settlement with them? As when I was there and showed it to them they made it like it was no big deal.
hi, this happened about 10 days ago, she did not get hurt because i took a bite (thankful it was me) and was chewing and kept chewing and it was hard so i pulled it out and it was a screw with plastic around it with a sharp point.
they gave me a $20 giftcard and said sorry, but later when i got home i notice one of my tooths that was already bad chipped more im sure from the screw being so hard..
my biggest problem is how lightly they took it like it happens all the time..
The attorney I spoke to on here on justawnsers.com said I could threten to due under the theory of "negligence.
I have spoken to there claims company and as I said they said $150 they will offer... I said I want a min of $1,000 and its not so much about the money but holding them liable for this issue as it could of resulted in very bad injury to my one year old or even death..
Just let me know your thoughts..
OK, Great yeah I am not using it to make money and I do have recorded emails from them saying they were sorry and that they are half way admitting to this happening, but they blame it on a supplier of the food. anyhow If you can read above what I edited and posted and tell me your thoughts on the settlement issue....
I was using this domain idea to expose them if they are not willing to settle with me then I will let others know about what happened with us when we ate there...
Just wanted to make sure i was not breaking any laws..
