We would like to point out, however, that this case and the infamous McDonald’s case are vastly different. The McD’s lawsuit was not portrayed properly by the media at the time and the incident was far worse than many people realize. In fact, it was life-threatening, and many doctors did not expect the woman to live.
Much like this case, the woman initially asked for a much smaller sum — simply the cost of her medical bills. McDonald’s denied her request and paid for it later (to the tune of $2.9 million).
