Call the cops.
McDonald's did not deny the claim. McDonalds insurance company did, not McDonalds.

The McDonald's employee's unwritten job description would include confronting the aggressor (if no other member of staff did so) while somebody called the police. Certainly it would have been prudent not to, but few of us would want to live in a world where everyone acted like McDonald's, putting legal obligation above moral responsibility.

I've recently read a fox article regarding the shooting of Rodney
Parham that left him with multiple gunshot wounds, multiple surgeries and a
$300,000+ bill. He has filed for workers compensation due to the shooting
that occurred on the premises and was so callously denied.
Frankly I find this attitude toward a hero who was concerned about the
immediate safety of the woman being beaten, other employee's and other
patrons to be despicable. Not only should the brave young man have his
workers compensation claim approved, he should receive a reward for
possibly saving multiple lives at YOUR establishment.
I will no longer patronize ANY mcdonalds establishment until this brave
young man receives what is reasonably due regarding his workers
If the mcdonalds corporation had any quality leadership, they would realize
that treating this person as the hero he is, would bring incredible amounts
of free POSITIVE publicity to the restaurant chain instead of the large
amounts of NEGATIVE publicity which you are currently experiencing.
Thank you for taking the time to contact McDonald's to let us know your thoughts on this unfortunate incident.
Because this restaurant is an independently owned McDonald's and a claim is still pending, it is not appropriate for us to comment. The owner of this restaurant hopes this claim will come to a quick resolution and the right thing will be done.
Again, thank you for contacting McDonald's.
