One of the toughest things we have to deal with as trial lawyers is the misconception that all lawsuits are frivolous. The hallmark example jurors often point to is the McDonald’s coffee lawsuit. We spend a great deal of time at the beginning of every trial educating jurors about the case and how what they have heard about the case is likely not accurate. Our firm recently came across an interesting, funny, and informative video that does a great job of presenting the truth about that lawsuit, which can be seen here. If you feel inclined to gain a deeper understanding of the lawsuit, HBO produced an informative in-depth documentary about the case.
It is important that people are aware of the misinformation that has been strategically spread by a team of corporate lawyers and executives. This type of misinformation has greatly affected a lawyer’s ability to bring a successful lawsuit on behalf of an injured victim. We hope you find these videos informative and entertaining and that you help spread the truth about the McDonald’s coffee lawsuit to your friends and families.
