Is that what your legislator told you? Said hell fight your fights?
No, that is the fact. Not only is my friends parents lawyers who practice specifically personal injury, but I know several people who have been blasted for tens of thousands of dollars on top of the hundreds of thousands that were already paid.

You think you know what's going on, you don't.

You clearly live a sheltered life not to be bother by what goes on around you. Your ad hominem attack against what you assume my political views may be stands alone as you are pulling things from your ass.

Perhaps if you actually get off the internet, into the world and look around at the state of the legal system in the states you would be amazed at the crap that is allowed to go to trial. All you have to prove with your injury is your inconvenience, and the other drivers negligence. Considering no fault states still ticket you for your transgression that caused the accident both are easy.

Get the hell out of here with your high horse bull****. Just because you live in fear of lawsuit, doesn't mean you're right. Perhaps you are the one who should pursue research instead of knocking beers with your cousin's buddies friends uncle's lawyer.

There is something called elements of the law. The plaintiff (person who said ouch for you keyboard warriors) must prove the defendent (person at fault for the accident) meets ALL elements of committing the tortious act of personal injury.

Look it up, you'll see I'm not wrong.

However, in a personal injury case, elements really aren't that hard to prove. That dude was at fault for an accident where he caused damaged. Duty to care breached by negligence, causation proved by being at fault...

Hey winner winner right? Never working a day again right
Wrong.


Here's my fav: Damages: There must be injury. This can include physical injury, property damage, or emotional distress. Unlike other personal injury claims, emotional distress has a higher chance of recovery under intentional torts.

So assuming this is an unintentional tort (like you didn't go purposely run somebody down..which would be attempted murder but hey who's playing lawyer here anyway...) The plaintiff has to prove of the physical losses caused by this.

If you lost a limb or something, yeah you're getting paid. You should be. But from a frivoulous standpoint, since emotional distress is almost impossible to prove for unintentional cases, you have 1 thing and 1 thing only that's a money maker.

Medical bills. Rule of thumb is commonly 3x medical bill in big cases

So who gets a 100k medical bill that also is filing a frivoulous lawsuit?


That's why you're coming off as a condescending idiot. All these advertisements you see are real. Yeah they say GET MILLIONS. Why wouldn't they?

I also saw I could lease a Ferrari for 599/month.

But once you go in and provide all the docs, a more realistic expectation is explained. And btw your lawyer is taking 33%.


Remember, I'm not arguing against personal injury cases being worth millions, I'm arguing against bad information on the internet claiming "stories" of somebody getting a million bucks for wearing a neck brace to court.

Moral of the story: have good insurance with a high liability coverage, don't drink and drive, and don't listen to idiots and "try to get paid"

If either of you continues this line of conversation, I'm closing this thread.

I've already ignored him so I have no idea what he has going on and couldn't care less.

Insurance....Well I know that my insurance went down when I sold my 2015 WRX and bought my 2016 Camaro SS. The Camaro had about a $10K higher sticker price and ~200 more horsepower and 200 more pound feet of torques. I was (am) old, with no tickets or accidents in this century. I can't offer any comparisons now because we've changed our bundling and upped our umbrella policy.

High judgements only matter if you have resources. In far too many cases (OK, the person I share a toothbrush holder with used to do 10/20/10 settlements for Brand X insurance company - works for U.S. Attorney's office now) the insurance company deposits the policy maximum in XXX account and allows the court to decide how it is distributed. The other side of this coin is why you carry UIM or UM (under insured motorist - uninsured motorist). If you have a $100K BMW, then 20K policy maximum will likely not replace your bumper.

I was looking for information about insurance but know I'm gonna grab some popcorn and see how this argument evolves lol. But if serious I have to pay a lot of money per year for full coverage insurance on my 2004 WRX STI. It's both comprehensive and the collision, so I think it's worth the money, even though it's a lot. I got a few quotes on Compare Cheap Car Insurance Quotes Online - Money Expert and it's the best deal I could get. Now, if my car gets totaled, at least I'll have enough to buy a new one. And I guess that everyone has to think about this, you know our cars are not on the road forever.
