Wake Up and Smell the Coffee By Sheralyn Mar, Esq. When people talk about personal injury lawsuits, it is usually not long before  conversation turns to the infamous McDonald’s “coffee spill” case.  Unfortunately, the  picture that has been painted in our minds about the McDonald’s case, and hence all  personal injury lawsuits, is far from the truth.   What is the truth?  Personal injury lawsuits protect the injured from those who  refuse to take responsibility for their negligent acts.   The McDonald’s case is a prime example.  The injured woman in the McDonald’s  case suffered excruciating third-degree burns to the unimaginable - her genitals.  She also  sustained third-degree burns to her thighs and buttocks.  Third-degree burns actually char  the skin and destroy the underlying tissue and nerves.
