McDonald’s Injury

Though the phrase “McDonald’s lawsuit” probably evokes the hot coffee case (Liebeck v. McDonald’s) made famous by Seinfeld, McDonald’s lawsuits are far more likely to involve workers’ compensation or workers’ safety than coffee. If you include both corporate-owned restaurants and McDonald’s franchises, there are nearly two million McDonald’s employees in the world. With so many workers, and relatively little corporate oversight, injuries are bound to happen.

That said, McDonald’s guests also suffer injuries, such as slip-and-falls, burns (e.g., the coffee case), and even beatings. Guest injuries can occur as a result of equipment failure, inattentive staff, and/or lax safety measures, among other causes.

Whether you’re a McDonald’s employee or a guest, if you were injured at McDonald’s, you may be able to recover significant financial compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Keep reading to learn how Morgan & Morgan may be able to help.

  • Types of McDonald’s Lawsuits

    Recently, McDonald’s has seen a rash of workers’ compensation and employee rights lawsuits. (In November, 2019, the company paid $26 million to settle a wage theft lawsuit brought by tens of thousands of employees.) These cases can arise for a variety of reasons:

    Guests, like employees, are susceptible to slip-and-falls, burns, and even attacks. These injuries may occur because of one (or more) of the following:

    • Staff inattention and/or lack of training
    • Faulty or poorly maintained equipment
    • Inadequate number of staff
    • Lack of first aid kits or other legally required materials
    • Failure to warn (e.g., no “Wet Floor” signs, no “Caution: Hot” label on coffee)
  • McDonald’s Injuries

    Believe it or not, serious injuries can occur at McDonald’s, for both employees and guests. These are some of the most common injuries that occur in these cases:

    • Burns
    • Sprains
    • Bursitis (joint inflammation)
    • Broken bones
    • Neck and back injuries
    • Concussions
  • Proving Negligence

    If you were injured, denied pay, or sexually harassed at McDonald’s, you might be wondering how to go about proving it. “Negligence” is the legal term for liability or responsibility in an incident. Proving liability generally involves satisfying the following criteria:

    • McDonald’s owed you a duty of care. The company was responsible for operating its restaurant in a safe manner, and they failed to do so.
    • They breached their duty. McDonald’s breached their legal obligation to avoid harming you.
    • Their breach caused the accident. McDonald’s actions were responsible for the accident, making them legally liable.
    • There were losses suffered as a result. McDonald’s actions caused you injury (physical or emotional) and/or property damage.
  • Potential Damages

    If you were injured at McDonald’s, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the fast food chain seeking compensation for one or more of the following:

    • Unpaid wages (for McDonald’s employees)
    • Lost wages and/or diminished earning capacity
    • Past, current, and future medical bills
    • Pain and suffering
    • Physical therapy
    • Loss of life’s enjoyment

Morgan and Morgan is truly the best law firm! PERIOD! You could consider yourself blessed when they take your case. Immediately, you can breathe. Anxiety goes from a 10 to 0! I needed them 3 TIMES! I wish I didn’t have to hire an attorney but my family and I were blessed. We won every single time! Insurance companies truly know that they will take it to court! I got settlements for all 3 lawsuits. Never stepped a foot into a courtroom. Thank you so much Morgan & Morgan!
