    Default McDonald's Cheeseburger Negligence Lawsuit

    Obviously this guy doesn't have a frivolous lawsuit allergy... So apparently the 'multiple preventive steps' he took 'to assure his food did not contain cheese' did not include looking at the damn sandwich before eating it...

    MORGANTOWN - A Monongalia County man is seeking $10 million from McDonald's after an employee put cheese on his sandwich.

    The man says he bit into a hamburger and had a severe allergic reaction to the cheese melted on it.

    Jeromy Jackson, who is in his early 20s, says he clearly ordered two Quarter Pounders without cheese at the McDonald’s restaurant in Star City before heading to Clarksburg.

    His mother Trela Jackson and friend Andrew Ellifritz are parties to the lawsuit because they say they risked their lives rushing Jeromy to United Hospital Center in Clarksburg.

    The lawsuit alleges Jeromy “was only moments from death” or serious injury by the time he reached the hospital.

    “We’re interested in seeing McDonald’s take responsibility and change a systemic quality control problem that endangers the lives of up to 12 million Americans with allergies,” said Timothy Houston, the Morgantown lawyer representing the plaintiffs.

    Houston said his clients were in Morgantown in October 2005 and stopped at the Star City McDonald’s on the way home to Clarksburg. Jeromy Jackson was living with his mother at the time.

    Jeromy did his part to make it known he didn’t want cheese on the hamburgers because he is allergic, Houston said.

    He told a worker through the ordering speaker and then two workers face-to-face at the pay and pick-up windows that he couldn’t eat cheese, Houston said.

    “By my count, he took at least five independent steps to make sure that thing had no cheese on it,” Houston said. “And it did and almost cost him his life.”

    After getting the food, the three drove to Clarksburg and started to eat the food in a darkened room where they were going to watch a movie, Houston said.

    Jeromy took one bite and started having the reaction, Houston said. One of the three immediately called the McDonald’s to let restaurant employees know they had messed up the order, but had to cut the call short when Jeromy started having a bad reaction, Houston said.

    At least two managers at the McDonald’s called the Jacksons afterward to apologize for what happened, Houston said.

    McDonald’s representatives offered to pay half of Jeromy’s medical bills -- which totaled about $700. When Houston became involved, he said the company offered to pay all the medical costs.

    The plaintiffs weren’t interested, and McDonald’s wasn’t offering anything more than medical costs.

    The Jacksons and Ellifritz filed the lawsuit on July 18 in Monongalia Circuit Court.

    Houston didn’t know if McDonald’s had yet been served with the complaint.

    The lawsuit seeks damages on two counts of negligence, one count of intentional infliction of emotional distress and one count of punitive damages.

    Call me cautious, but if I had severe reactions to cheese, I might lift the bun up and double check rather than put my life in the hands of the guys making minimum wage at Mickey D's.

    But that's just me.

    No shit! People theat eat at fast food places should know they should check first! You check the bag before you leave the drive thru, Right? I do, and I don't have alergies! People don't get payed to think that work in fast food, they get paid to make food fast!!!! If I had alergies I wouldn't eat any of that! It just has to touch the bun, and you will have a reaction!

    uhhhh...call me crazy or nucking futs, but just when in fresh hell has anyone EVER had to actually lift the bun to see if there's cheese on a McDonald's cheeseburger? That crap is melting out everywhere and most of the stuff is on the paper wrapper and NOT on the actual burger!!!

    This guy is taking the term, "attention whore", to a completely new level.

    Let's just wait for McDonald's to break out the security footage from the restaurant that shows this moron putting his own cheese on the burger. Seems plausible.

    And you guys said it...if I am that severely allergic to cheese I am going to have a quick look.

    Well if he's that particular about his diet and eating habits, what in the flying fuck is he doing at McDonald's in the first place?

    hell i dislike onions and flip the bun to make sure they didn't include them. Just common sense if you're allergic - it isn't like you wouldn't notice cheese.

    That said I don't think this lawsuit is as silly as some others I've heard but really wonder why this thing ever needed to see the courts. I think the biggest mistake McDonalds made was only offering to pay for half the medical bills. What the hell were they thinking? You pay the few hundred bucks, give the guy some free burgers coupons (without cheese of course) and throw in an autographed photo of Grimmace and the Hamburgler for god's sake. You do not give them any reason to see a lawyer. Now this is gonna cost them a pile of money.

    Great point!!! I have saved my sanity (and health) by finding a McDonald's in my city that is in the food court of a mall. That way when my 4 year old son wants his grilled cheese happy meal, I can get something healthy. Everyone's happy. Once a month I seem to forget how awful the McDonald's food makes me feel and I order up a 1/4 pounder. Within half an hour it feels like there is a brick pushing down on my colon!

    Common sense clearly isnt this guys strong point.

    Imagine living a life where a SLICE OF CHEESE can fuck you up? That's gotta mess with your head a bit.

    If this guy is actually allergic to cheese, then a McDonald's hamburger shouldn't have an effect on him at all, because that shit ain't cheese.

    There's more vegetable oil in that shit than dairy products. And if he's allergic to vegetable oil, then he can't eat the fries either.

    And how about his mother and friend, who have joined in the lawsuit because the "RISKED THEIR LIVES" driving him to the hospital?

    Sad part is, I can see these three winning, and getting the full $10 million.
