Wrongful death suits can arise nearly anywhere, but some still manage to surprise. In a sad turn of events for a business built on offering joy than heartache, a Louisiana donut shop is facing a wrongful death from a man from Georgia. The suit demonstrates just how a wrongful death suit may not be limited to the places you’d expect.
The suit arose after the Georgia man’s father passed away subsequent to eating an apple fritter. According to the suit, the man’s father was allergic to walnuts and died in his hotel room after eating the fritter, which contained walnut flour. The suit specified that the donut shop had failed to inform customers of the presence of walnuts in its fritters.
