Even though it has been two decades the McDonald’s Hot Coffee case lives on in history. If you mention it even today it conjures up all sorts of different opinions. If you are not familiar with it, it was the product liability case of Stella Liebeck vs. McDonalds, the fast food giant. This occurred after she spilled hot coffee in her lap.
Interestingly, Esquire Magazine has just picked up the mantle and written a fascinating article on the nearly 25-year old case. Please check out the September addition of Esquire. In it you will find a well-crafted retrospective entitled, “What you don’t know about the McDonald’s Hot Coffee burn case”. If you have the opportunity, give it a careful reading.
Some quarter century later the man who successfully represented Mrs. Liebeck is still practicing in Albuquerque, New Mexico where the incident occurred. His name is Kenneth Wagner. Attorney Wagner and his staff are important people to have on your side if you have a personal injury case in the Great Southwest. Call the office at (505) 242-6300.
