You’ve likely heard of the famous McDonald’s “hot coffee” case, in which 79-year-old Stella Liebeck – in Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurants (1994) – successfully sued the mammoth fast food chain after one of their locations served her scalding hot coffee, which accidentally spilled onto her thighs and pelvic region and left her with truly gruesome third-degree burns.

This past week has not been a good one for Amtrak. Ever since their train (#188) crashed in Philadelphia while traveling along a very popular route, anger, confusion and disbelief have flooded the airwaves. With eight confirmed fatalities, and hundreds of others dealing with injuries sustained in the crash, people want to know why the crash happened.
