The Broward County jury found that McDonald’s and franchise owner Upchurch Foods acted improperly in the August 2019 incident.
Jurors decided that the family was not properly warned of the possible danger from the hot Mcnuggets at a Tamarac, Florida drive-thru.
The family had been seeking $15 million dollars to compensate for the pain and suffering of the four-year-old girl who sustained severe burns and scars in the incident.
Wednesday, the jury awarded the family $400 thousand dollars for the burn injuries sustained and another $400 thousand dollars for future damages.
The child’s mother says she was happy with the jury’s verdict.
Attorneys for McDonald’s declined to speak outside the Broward County courtroom Wednesday afternoon.
