Negligence is when one person is injured by another person who acted without proper care. In such a situation, an individual can sue the negligent person for damages. The negligent person would be compensating the injured party for the harm they received, which includes damages to body, property, mental well-being, and financial distress. Some of the most common negligence complaints occur in the medical field, because people in many respects are under the control and guidance of another person.
Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurants
This lawsuit is also known as the Hot Coffee case. Stella Liebeck purchased a cup of coffee from a McDonald’s restaurant in 1992. The coffee spilled on her lap, leaving her with third degree burns. Liebeck underwent skin grafting surgery and lost weight with additional medical treatment to follow. Liebeck ended up suing McDonald’s, accusing them of gross negligence for selling coffee that was too hot. After several settlement offers were rejected, Liebeck took the case to trial and ended up winning almost $3 million in compensatory and punitive damages.
