Lynne Turk Also Sues Dart Container Corporation Of Florida
DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A woman who “winters” in Delray Beach but lives in New York is suing a Dunkin Donuts franchisee and Dart Container Corporation of Florida.
Lynne Turk claims that “on or about February 2, 2019, (she) purchased two extra-large coffees at the Dunkin’ Donuts” at 4801 Linton Blvd., 9A, in Delray Beach. In the suit, she claims “the extra large coffee cups collapsed due to a product defect in the stability of the cups. The scalding hot coffee splashed onto Lynne’s left arm and wrist, causing severe burns and permanent injuries.”
Lynne, according to the suit, suffered “significant burns and has permanent disfigurement resulting therefrom, which causes and will continue to cause Lynne embarrassment, shame and significant cost for body cosmetics.”
The suit adds that coffee cup incident prevented her from taking care of Abraham “Bucky” Turk, her husband.
“Lynne is the sole caregiver for Bucky, who suffers from significant disability and other permanent physical ailments. As a direct result of the incident, Lynne’s ability to care for Bucky was severely compromised due to the excruciating pain and cumbersome bandages covering the length of her arm.”
Lynnn and Abraham, in language directly from the suit, “reside in New York but spend (their) winters in Palm Beach County.”
The product liability suit is filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court. It lists Hari Om Donut Corporation (The Dunkin’ Donuts Franchisee), as well as Dart Container Corporation of Florida, as defendants. You can read the entire suit, below.Turk-Lawsuit
