      McDONALD'S GOES TO TRIAL; THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN INJURED
   AT McDONALD'S PLAYGROUNDS NATIONWIDE, SAYS COHEN & STEINBRECHER
     Multi-Million Dollar Suit for Gross Negligence & Liability
    BAKERSFIELD, Calif., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The following is being issued by Edward Lozzi & Associates on behalf of Cohen & Steinbrecher:
    McDonald's Corporation, with headquarters in Chicago, is being sued here in Superior Court for millions of dollars for gross negligence and Breach of Public Trust for improperly maintaining their children's playgrounds.  McDonald's has been forced by the court to reveal the horrible records of injuries to children between the ages of 3 and 10 since 1986 and beyond including broken legs, arms, fractured elbows, punctures and abdominal lacerations, broken fingers, scars, etc.
    Many of these injuries have been very serious including 10-year- old Marlena Escalera, who broke her leg while playing on McDonald's TUG n' Turn unit at the Delano, Calif., store.  For these past three years McDonald's has been on the hot seat because of the Los Angeles law firm of Cohen & Steinbrecher, one of the largest and successful personal injury attorneys in the country.  Through its intensive and crusading investigations and the understanding of the California legal process, McDonald's Corporation has failed to stall and excuse itself from this due process.
    Edward Steinbrecher, founding partner of Cohen & Steinbecher, and personally taking on this case to represent the plaintiff Escalera states, "...we have found that McDonald's is the largest operator of childrens playgrounds in the country and therefore it should be their total responsibility to properly maintain their playgrounds.  We should not have to worry about our children's health at ... of all places -- McDonald's.  Now we do have to worry."
    Jury selection has just been completed and opening statements are now being put forth today.  The trial is expected to last two weeks or more.
