Brockton, Massachusetts (CBS Boston) – A woman who was burned by “burning” hot coffee at a Massachusetts location Duncan is suing the local store owner and two employees who allegedly mocked her injuries.
Angela Barbosa filed the suit in Plymouth High Court earlier in October. She said she was in the passenger seat of her sister’s car in June of 2020 when they stopped in Dunkin’ car at night and ordered three hot coffees. She claims that an employee handed her sister coffee cups that were not tightly placed in a tray, and that hot drinks were not properly covered.

They trekked and turned on Barbossa, burning her legs and buttocks.
The suit states, “The plaintiff, screaming in pain, was forced to take off her tight pants in the parking lot, exposing herself in full view of Dunkin’ Donuts employees.” “Seeing this, the staff were pointing, laughing, and making fun of the plaintiff.”

The lawsuit stated that the coffee spill resulted in serious burns and nerve damage, as well as permanent scars. Barbosa is suing for negligence and emotional distress. The lawsuit states that “the actions of the accused were extreme and outrageous, beyond all possible limits of decency and wholly intolerable in a civilized society.”
According to the lawsuit, the Dunkin’ website in question is owned by Pembroke-based Cadete Enterprises. WBZ-TV has reached out to them in Boston for comment.
