Husband Sues Disney for Wrongful Death of His Wife

Husband Sues Disney for Wrongful Death of His WifeDisney is facing a lawsuit for the wrongful death of Kanokporn Tangsuan, who had an allergic reaction to food she ate at a restaurant in Disney Springs. She told the restaurant she had food allergies. They claimed those foods were not in their meals. That was not the case. Tangsuan’s death was completely avoidable, and both Disney and Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant should be held accountable for dismissing or ignoring his wife’s food allergies.

According to Law360, her husband, Jeffrey Piccolo, recently filed a lawsuit against Disney World and the restaurant for their negligence: “He said the waiter ‘unequivocally assured them that the food would be allergen free,’ but Tangsuan suffered a reaction just 45 minutes later that killed her.”

Why Disney should be liable for Tangsuan’s death

Hickey Law Firm has handled many food allergy cases. If the customer warns the food server or the manager (and better to warn both) and they choose to serve the very foods they were warned about, the restaurant owners need to compensate the injured customer.

The restaurant staff were made aware of Tangsuan’s severe allergy to nuts and dairy products numerous times and still acted negligently by serving her food containing these allergens. As a result of his wife’s death, Piccolo is traumatized and devastated. She was in her early 40s and previously worked as a doctor for New York University. Therefore, she was medically informed and had a great amount of knowledge about her allergen.

Piccolo seeks damages for mental and emotional pain and suffering, loss of companionship, loss of protection, loss of support, funeral and burial costs, medical bills, lost income, and more. One of his main goals is to ensure that no other spouse or family member has to endure a horrific incident like this one in the future.
