New documentary “Hot Coffee” | Richmond Personal Injury Lawyer

TV review: On HBO’s ‘Hot Coffee,’ a persuasive finding for the plaintiffs – The Washington Post.

There is a new documentary about the famous McDonald’s hot coffee lawsuit.

The story, in case you haven’t heard, is that 79-year-old woman spills a cup of 180 degree coffee in her lap and suffers second and third degree burns that are so bad that doctors feared she would not live.

The victim sued to cover her medical costs and the jury awarded her $2.86 million, an amount that was reduced by the judge.

The documentary will be showing on HBO this summer. Check your local listings for times.
