Why in the hell would you blame McDonald's instead of the dumbass parents who shove happy meals in their kids' faces?
Unless the kid is working a 40hr/week job, paying rent and buying their own food, it is their parents' fault for pulling into the drive-through.
How do you differentiate between "lack of common sense" and "poor judgement"? Both are your fault.
So, the plaintiff should have been compensated for the difference between the suffering caused by a second degree burn and a third degree burn.
You really think that makes more sense than saying the plaintiff shouldn't have spilt the coffee in her lap?
Who did you sue? Don't tell me you (and your parents) took responsibility for your own actions.
