Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. Also, I can only answer the questions you specifically ask and based on the facts that you give so please be sure that you ask the questions you want to ask and provide all necessary facts.
It looks like your facts were cut off. Is there a specific question with which I could assist?
There's not a specific amount set by law that you would be "allowed for food".
If you had an insurance policy they could have a per diem which they would pay, but under the law you are entitled to recover your reasonable and necessary damages.
In a case like yours this is usually done by saving the receipts for the meals which you ate and then presenting them to the judge who would make the decision on whether the amount was reasonable.
If you don't have all of the receipts then you can take what you do have, get an average of those and explain tot he judge the remainder of the receipts were lost but ask him for the average of the ones you do have for each of the days your kitchen was disabled.
