Woman Sues Wendys

Tue May 21, 2002 9:30 am

I just saw what has got to be a continuation of some of the most ridiculous lawsuits in America being discussed on MSNBC. This lady bought a Wendy's chicken sandwich, ate it while driving, the sandwich was hot as it always is.......the sauce in the sandwich spewed out at her when she bit it and she got burned on the mouth and cheek. She is now suing the company for mental, emotional and physical anguish. My question is, who is responsible to take the necessary care when eating? Would she sue them if she had coked on it too?

No way! Mc-D is good, but I think Wendy's is a little better-more choices.

This is sooo dumb dude, maybe if she baught shoes and walked in them for a while and stepped in doggy-doo, then she should sue the shoe company for "emotional damage"

BTW- what was the emotional damage in this case-??? Her fault, but what can you say? Dumb people will always exist....

I am going to sue her for being an idiot. Anyone want to get in this? While we are at it, lets sue her parents and family for raising her the way she is.

Claim the worker who made the sandwich died in the process of making it. Sue the stupid-ass woman claiming that if she would have never ordered it their beloved coworker would have never died. Entire restaurant can claim emotional distress over the loss while the "victim" lives it up under a new identity in the tropics from the money sent from her family. Big thumbs up

One repercussion of these greedy people is that you can no longer enjoy nice hot food in public. Go into any coffee shop and enjoy your tepid coffee and think of women like the one mentioned above.

Lawsuits such as this one are maliciously frivilous, nothing more than a greedy grab for cash.

In Australia a boy won $1 million because he was punched in the schoolyard while a woman who's husband poured petrol on her and set her alight got $50,000 compensation :-(

This is one of the negatives of Western Society, we need to introduce an "idiot clause" where a judge can simply say "you hurt yourself because you're an idiot" and not pay any money at all. Then perhaps the rest of us can start enjoying ourselves again.

(and Dripstick .. body temperature isn't considered "hot")

Whilst the woman in question leaves a lot to be desired, it's the bloody lawyers who incourage this sort of behaviour who are the real problem. I bet their cut of any award is significant, which is why they do it of course.

Even the lawyers who defend these cases make money. Hmm is this a co-incidence?

Goodness, you don't know how sadistic Greg is.

OK, next time you board a bus and someone pushes you accidentally, are you going to sue that person for assault? Obviously not.

These people just don't have common sense. It's just like suing your dog for emotional and physical anguish for biting you.

Crazy woman. She should be sent to jail for wasting taxpayer's cash and making frivolous claims.

Do you guys rember the guy or gal that sued McDonald's because she burned herself while eating and apple pie. That's why now on the label, there's a warning stating that the contents are hot. Plus that's just chump change to McDonalds. They could afford it.

The easiest way to reduce these kind of idiotic lawsuits is to change the court system where the person bringing the suit pays the court costs for both sides if they loose. The people who would be suing would be the people who have a legitimate reason.

She should be sued for millions for endangering the lives of the public by eating and driving at the same time. And she should be banned from public as well for lacking common sense. All of these pathetic people who sue for this garbage should be forced to move to an island, so they could learn to deal with eachother and see the consequences of their own stupidity. Let them have their own "I'm a stupid fatass loser with no common sense" society and let's see how well it thrives. Stupid stupid stupid people.

Hey people, she just FILED the lawsuit. 99% of the time, these type of cases get thrown out before the trial even begins. Thankfully, most judges aren't that stupid to actually let a lawsuit like this go to trial. Even if the case goes to trial and she wins, usually the Defendant will appeal, and the ruling gets overturned. Of course, there are exceptions.

You never hear this part of the story.

Shit like this shows that we need a "Loser pays" court system.

The problem is that Wendys is almost certain to loose this case.
I've never seen a warning in a fastfood restaurant (and repeated on the packaging of the food for good measure) warning that the food can be hot. That's enough reason for a jury in the US to convict the company... Common sense is not needed in the US anymore, you'll get richer if you lack it but have a good liability lawyer.
In the end, evolution will produce a race of dumb liability lawyers there...

I'm sorry Jwenting, but McDonalds has labels on its apple pies, coffee and tea cups that they contents MAY BE HOT. If they can't read the fine print, then sad for them.

Wendy shouldn't lose, because all it did was to sell the burger to that woman. Wendy's didn't force her to eat it while driving and cause her to burn herself, isn't it?

If she couldn't wait, couldn't she have eaten the burger in the restaurant herself?

Wow...great to know I had such notoriety around here!
Yes, I was in court. And yes, I won my case. Thank those of you for asking.

I haven't even read the suit she filed or really seen much written about this.
It will be similiar to the infamous coffee case: "We know the sandwich is served hot, but does it have to be THAT hot..."

I don't handle PI except for friends...and only a bit of malpractice as second chair..which is considerably different...so I'm not the expert here.

Sounds pretty frivilous to me..which will probably surprise many of you! BUT...I don't think it will get thrown out on summary judgement--she WAS injured and Wendy's does actually have some contributory negligence here.

Good point EGGD. I can now see that if this crazy bitch wins against Wendy's, forget about getting chicken at any fast food restaurante. Why risk it? Chicken has to be well cooked in order to be safe. If it's going to create too much hassle for them, bye bye chicken sandwich! I guess all you chickens out there can breathe a sigh of relief. hehehe.

EGGD...what they'll do is require a minimum waiting time between pulling it from the fryer and serving it....or possibly making sure it didn't sit under the heat lamps too long. McDonald's didn't stop serving coffee just because someone won a verdict---they just lowered the temperature of the brewing machines.

At any rate, we'll probably still get cooked chicken....it's just that it will probably be served cold!
