It is in the nature of any living organism to protect itself. People have brains and can think (or can they?). Put 2 and 2 together and think about the hot coffee in the cup. Do you really need a warning written on the cup to tell you that the content is hot and may burn you? A 5-year old that have never seen a hot stove before may and probably will want to touch it. But a grown person acting like a child?
Exactly! But unfortunately... You happen to be in a country now, where liability / responsibility and "who is to blame?" have all taken on a new set of meanings...which have then propagated worldwide. Where there's blame, there's a claim! Such is life!

Yes, but refer to the above again, because that's the 'hidden' factor. This means that if you think it's all clear cut... think again

Sadly, there's plenty of "successful legal cases" where this common sense logic has not been applied after elongated court hearings
