Resort Hit With Lawsuit After Woman Passes Away From Allergic Reaction

Losing a loved one is never easy, but it is even more devastating when their death could have been prevented.

Jeffrey Piccolo recently filed a lawsuit against Disney and Raglan Road after his wife, Dr. Kanokporn Tangsuan, passed away from an allergic reaction.

The couple had visited the popular Irish restaurant in Disney Springs, and after informing their waiter about Tangsuan’s severe dairy and nut allergies, they were assured that the food would be prepared allergen-free.

However, Tangsuan still ended up consuming fritters, scallops, a vegan shepherd’s pie, and onion rings – all of which were supposed to be dairy and nut-free.

Sadly, Tangsuan suffered a fatal allergic reaction while shopping after their dinner at Raglan Road. Despite their precautions, the couple’s request for an allergen-free meal was not taken seriously, leading to a tragic outcome.

The lawsuit claims negligence on the part of Disney and Raglan Road for breaching their duty of care to ensure that food designated as allergen-free was indeed free from any potential harm.

Disney and Raglan Road have yet to respond to the lawsuit. The loss of a loved one cannot be compensated with any amount of money, but Piccolo’s request for damages of at least $50,000 is not just about the financial aspect. It is a way to hold those responsible for Tangsuan’s death accountable for their actions and bring awareness to the importance of proper food handling and allergen safety.

We rely on restaurants to provide us with a safe and enjoyable dining experience, especially when we have special dietary restrictions. It is vital for restaurants to take the necessary precautions and have proper training for their staff to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
