    In terms of this I know the dangers I accepted when I rolled on to the track. Having an ambulance parked in my path 90 degrees to the path of the racing surface is not one of them.

    So in this case she wasn't clever enough to drink coffee without spilling it on herself or clip a plastic cup holder to the door card.

    Sorry...couldn't resist being a dick on that one.

    That's okay because I have no idea what you're trying to say:crackup:

    Not the track rental part. The part where they conclude who was at fault while simultaneously stating they weren't involved. It needlessly and irresponsibly makes conclusions about who/what happened while attempting to absolve themselves of any responsibility (not saying they have any).

    The part having to do with track rental is fine. This part has nothing to do with how track rental works and specifically discusses what happened at the track that day. That is where it is out of line since they said they already said that have nothing to do with it.

    Where can I find the warning label from the results of that lawsuit? :D

    I remember those clip on plastic cup holders. So they were indeed available at the time as confirmed by at least two of you here so still a limited reason to stick hot coffee in your crotch. Just sayin'. Not everything is someone else's fault for which they should be held legally liable. Seems I am the odd man out on the hot coffee lawsuit but it is not the first time and won't be the last. :D

    If cup holder technology was readily available at the time of this unfortunate incident, surely the manufacturer who failed to provide one in the victim's car bears some responsibility for her injuries. Is there a statute of limitations for beverage trauma? Incidentally, if someone were to sue McDonald's for falsely representing the noxious swill that they peddle as being fit for human consumption, they would enjoy my full support.

    While you are probably kidding, I would not be the least bit surprised if there was a label somewhere on all McDonald's coffee machines warning not to mess with the brew temperature settings.

    You know there is, just like the one that says don't stick your foot under a running lawn mower or the one that says don't drink the contents of a bottle of bleach and yet somehow, society is convinced they are smarter than the people that came before them. :D

    I used to think the same thing until I watched the doc and learned what actually happened. She deserved every penny.

    The car I was referring to earlier was a 92 GTI in which I too kept a window cupholder. :D
    Nah, not quite. I think that the responsibilities were shared and I wouldn't have been shocked to see the case tossed out of court. However, I am glad that McDonald's lost. They may not have been guilty of putting hot coffee between a grown woman's legs, but the way he treated her was despicable enough to warrant a very painful verdict.

    The real shame is that the people who advised them to fight the case probably did not become homeless as a result of the massive loss.
