PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Today on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, Dom Giordano spoke out against a lawsuit filed against Dunkin’ Donuts by a woman who claims she was burned by a cup of apple cider after placing it between her legs. Jennifer Fragoso alleges the lid on the beverage came off while she was in her car, and the resulting injuries have left permanent scars on her thighs.
“I don’t think this woman in the cider case should get the money. I think there are a lot of frivolous lawsuits that are brought and goofballs out there that don’t know what they’re doing and as a result end up suing,” Giordano commented, sharing his opinion on the validity of the case.
“Isn’t it on you ultimately? Why are these people always putting this stuff between their legs? Now it’s this woman here from Dunkin’ Donuts,” he stated about the responsibility of the individual to ensure for herself that the drink did not spill and burn her.
Giordano lamented that lawsuits such as this make it more difficult for businesses to survive in the marketplace.
“My experience is this stuff is ridiculous,” Giordano said. “The thing is in a place like Philadelphia people that are sitting on those juries, they could have could have a murderer there and they feel some sympathy, but the doctor or the businessman is guilty the moment he walks in, because they think the insurance company will pay it. It’s like the lottery. It’s a payday for some people, so why not.”
