The injuries the women sustained in the McDonalds Coffee case almost KILLED HER.
She was and older women, not overweight for her age.
Also, there is a process in any legal proceeding before settlement.
The plaintiff has to present their claim to a judge. If there is no basis for their claim then they have no case.
A doctor would not operate on a person, who has no injury. If there is no medical procedure, there is no doctor bills, if there's no doctor bills there's no damages.
It's not that easy to fraudulently conjure a case.
Yeah she was in the hospital for 8 days, received skin grafts, and had 3rd degree burns over 6% of her body including her butt, thighs and genital area. All this so McDonald's coffee stayed fresh longer.
You may assume the coffee is hot, who wouldn't. But do you expect a chance at 3rd degree burns if something as simple as some idiot pulls in front of you and you have to slam on the breaks?
