I live in the west and it is shocking how numerous personal injury lawyers there are.
- It seems every time I drive there is a giant billboard of a personal injury lawyer demanding business.
Do a lot of people in the west fall or get hit by cars? Is this area more prone to personal injury than another? I don’t know if there would be a situation that I would call up a lawyer and demand going to court… Some people take personal injury law to the max. If I walk in a restaurant and slip on the wet floor, that is my own stupid fault. I would not think to sue the restaurant and get a lawyer to get myself some money. I heard about a single case where a guy spilled tepid Dunkin Donuts Coffee all over himself and burned himself, then he got a personal injury lawyer to take his case. He sued the corporation and got a whole bunch of money. But they now have to put “tepid Dunkin Donuts Coffee” on the side of their cups warning people. Apparently the guy did not realize it would be tepid or thought it would be ice cold. How silly is that? I get that there are certain drastic cases where getting a lawyer might be necessary. An automobile accident where a person is disfigured and it is not their fault is worth getting legal compensation. Getting hurt in a building when it is not up to code is worth seeking legal counsel. There was a case where a company was dumping toxins into the water that people were drinking and getting cancer because of it. Yes, that is worth seeking help.
