Florida LAWSUITS News Palm Beach County


BOYNTON BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boynton Beach man just filed a lawsuit against Red Lobster after he allegedly broke his tooth while eating food that he clams hid broken shells inside.

Bernard Kershner claims that the Red Lobster at 700 North Congress Avenue contained shells and shell pieces that kitchen workers should have removed. Kershner says he broke a tooth as a result of the restaurant’s negligence.

From the suit:

“On or about April 27, 2021, Plaintiff, BERNARD KERSHNER, a customer and business invitee of the Defendant, RED LOBSTER, ordered and purchased food from the subject premises Red Lobster located at 700 N. Congress Avenue, Boynton Beach, Florida 33426.”

“On or about April 27, 2021, Plaintiff, BERNARD KERSHNER, consumed the food that included mussels and other seafood from Defendant, RED LOBSTER that included unexpected shells and/or shell pieces which caused Plaintiff, BERNARD KERSHNER’s tooth to break off.”

“Defendant, RED LOBSTER, being a Foreign Limited Liability Company operating a restaurant and serving seafood to its customers and business invitees, knew or should have known of the dangers posed by unexpected shells and/or shell pieces in food meant for human consumption.”

The suit seeks in excess of the statutory minimum of $30,000. Kershner claims his medical expenses, combined with ongoing pain and suffering are significant and substantial.

Red Lobster did not immediately file a response with the Palm Beach County Clerk of Courts.
