Raleigh Personal Injury Lawyer discusses how “hot coffee” can get a business in “hot water”!
In September, Dunkin’ Donuts settled a personal injury claim for $522,000. A customer allegedly tripped over a spike in the parking lot and spilled hot coffee on herself, sustaining injuries that required surgery in January of 2012. Last March, we wrote an article about a similar parking lot incident at a McDonald’s. A lot of people fall as a result of hazardous conditions, however most decide not to make a claim because their injuries are minor or they are simply embarrassed and think that the fall could be due to their own contributory negligence.
