In the Buffalo Wild Wings class action lawsuit, an individual was allegedly injured due to negligence of their employee. This Wild Wings restaurant is a member of the Wingfoot Foods Group, which also includes such famous restaurants as T.G. Lively, Moes Cafe, Mickey’s Diner, and more. The restaurant in question is located at 48th Street and Waverly Place in Buffalo, New York.
This Wild Wings location has been the subject of several lawsuits over the years due to the poor safety record and negligence of its employees.
Most of these claims were either for physical injury or an animal death caused by carelessness on the part of Wild Wings’ management. The following is a brief description of this Wild Wings Class Action Lawsuit.
plaintiff: A male plaintiff suffered an aneurysm in June of 2021.
The medical bills alone were sufficient to pay off his mortgage and the medical expenses for two months while he was recovering. However, because of the carelessness of the Wild Wings’ general manager, this man filed a claim against the restaurant for both the medical bills and pain and suffering caused by the negligence of the manager.
defendant: The defendant failed to promptly hire a personal injury attorney when the plaintiff’s claim was filed in June of 2021.
Because of this, the plaintiff did not have proper legal representation to properly pursue the claims against the Wild Wings. After filing the initial claim against the restaurant, the defendant failed to respond properly to the claim or to make any improvements to the safety program that it currently had in place. Therefore, after three months without any form of resolution from the defendant, the plaintiff filed the class action lawsuit against the Wild Wings.
Plaintiffs’ Claim: The Wild Wings was negligent in its establishment of a Wild Wings Class Action Lawsuit.
The restaurant allowed customers with various illness conditions to dine at the restaurant, knowing that some of these diners would become infected with germs after dining at Wild Wings. In addition, because of the Wild Wings’ policy that “no wings” would be served to any customer who has a severe illness or condition, those with serious illnesses would not be able to enjoy the delicious food that is offered at Wild Wings. Additionally, because Wild Wings did not instruct its employees on the proper way to clean chicken wings so that they would not become contaminated, the contaminated food often made its way back to Wild Wings customers and ultimately caused further harm to these individuals. These injuries and damages are the result of the restaurant’s negligence in its establishment of a Wild Wings Class Action Lawsuit.
Defendant: Wild Wings asserts that the restaurant did not fail to hire a general manager and a qualified food safety consultant to oversee the operation of its wings.
Additionally, Wild Wings contends that the plaintiff’s claim is based on inaccurate and frivolous conduct by the plaintiffs’ attorneys. According to Wild Wings, it does not own or operate a “warehouse” where its wings are stored while they are being cooked. Instead, the restaurant maintains a fleet of trucks, which it uses to deliver Wild Wings to restaurants. Finally, as is noted by the defendant, Wild Wings vigorously guards against any potential threat to its business through the employment of food safety consultants.
Plaintiffs counter that their claims are legally frivolous and that the evidence of the harm caused to Wild Wings customers does not support their allegations. They further assert that because Wild Wings is a popular restaurant, a Wild Wings Class Action Lawsuit will not likely succeed. Furthermore, if such a lawsuit were to go forward, Wild Wings would most likely defeat such a lawsuit due to the fact that Wild Wings customers do not have a lawful right to bring a case against the restaurant. Therefore, plaintiffs have no standing to pursue such a lawsuit. If this is found to be the case, then Wild Wings would be facing a Wild Wings Class Action Lawsuit that could potentially amount to a substantial amount of money and Wild Wings has a very strong financial position.
To date, according to Wild Wings customers, Wild Wings is consistently delicious and the wing sauces offer a wide range of choices. However, those in the Class Action Lawsuit contend that the majority of the wing recipes currently offered by Wild Wings are unhealthy, especially Wing Sauce. In addition to being unhealthy, Wing Sauce causes an array of allergic reactions including nausea, vomiting, hives, swelling and more. Wing Sauce is also extremely sweet, which is why many people do not enjoy it. It is also currently found in an overwhelming amount of different wing recipes and even some of the wing sauces offered by Wild Wings are significantly less than the concentrated, all natural ingredients that make up the real buffalo wing sauce. As a result, while Wing Sauce may temporarily satisfy the craving for buffalo wing taste, the health risks far outweigh the pleasantness.
