In 1994, 79-year-old Stella Liebeck bought a coffee from McDonald’s and was enjoying it while driving her car. What seemed to be like a normal day for the woman ended in a nightmare.

She spilled her hot coffee on her lap causing third-degree burns and an eight days stay in the hospital while also going through skin grafting.

The jury rewarded the victim with more than $2 million, however the judge reduced it to $640,000. Both parties settled before making the decision to appeal.
