McDonald's Lawsuit

The Biggest OJ Attack Since '94

EXCLUSIVE

0825_mcdonalds_object-tmz-wm2
A big German guy guzzled some OJ at McDonald's and claims he got supersized -- with a 4" spear that fired into his throat.

Klaus Geier claims in his lawsuit he went to a San Fernando Valley McDonald's in April, 2012, and ordered a chicken sandwich, fries and a large OJ at the drive thru.

Klaus reached in his bag, noticed there wasn't a straw so he took the plastic top off as he drove away and started guzzling it.  

Klaus claims he felt something lodge in his throat -- a 4" valve which he believes was part of the OJ dispenser. As he reached in his mouth to remove it, Klaus says the serrated spear on the tip deployed and fired into his esophagus.

Attorney Anthony Liberatore, who reps Klaus, says his client grabbed the valve and spear and ripped them out of his throat, causing severe injury.

Klaus claims he is left with 2 bad options -- either highly risky surgery which could cause him to permanently lose his voice, or live with the damage which causes raspiness and a constant mucus buildup.

We tried contacting McDonald's but were unsuccessful.

What the hell is this story doing on TMZ? Might be a story for Law Digest or HUFF POST under legal but I think TMZ shouldn't have posted it.

He saved the piece from the drink but waited 2 years to sue? When did he go to the doctor for his ripped up throat after nearly choking to death? Did he wait 2 years for that too? If you're going to do real news stories you're going to have to give more details.
