Typically, the McDonald’s “hot coffee case” has been tossed out as a example of ‘frivilous lawsuits.’ However, what really happened in that case? A new film, Hot Coffee, takes you through the following:
- What really happened (the facts have little in common with the urban legend);
- the injuries, (gut-wrenching);
- McDonald’s refusal to pay for the victim’s medical bills (the family approached McD’s without a lawyer, just looking for the bills to be paid, only to be rebuffed)
- Why the jurors (in their own words) stand behind their award.
