McDonald’s may not be lovin’ it.

A Northlake woman is suing the fast-food titan, claiming her daughter suffered a bad burn in April 2009 when hot chocolate from a Schiller Park drive-through spilled.

“The mother isn’t loving it either,” said Chicago lawyer Eric Krumdick, referring to his client, Vicki LaRocco. “Her 10-year-old daughter now has a serious scar resulting from a second- and third-degree burn.”

LaRocco is seeking compensation in excess of $50,000 to cover daughter Mykael Vasquez’s medical bills and pain and suffering associated with scarring that Krumdick described as “ribbed” from the sock she was wearing.

In the suit filed Wednesday in Cook County Circuit Court, LaRocco claims the McDonald’s at 9449 Irving Park served hot chocolate “too hot for consumption,” particularly for children. It also charges that McDonald’s failed to adequately secure the cup’s lid.

But Juan Mendez, owner of the franchise, said, “At this time, these are just allegations. I would strongly caution . . . jumping to conclusions without the facts. Beyond that, it would be inappropriate for me to further comment or speculate on these claims.”
