:evil: I was watching the evening news just now and a commercial came on with an attorney offering serveces for people that were injured or sick and "deserved' compensation for some reason. Now I really don't like these type of lawyers but have almost become immune as they are commonplace. Immediately following that commercial was ANOTHER one also for an agency of attorneys offering to work on 'your' behalf for anyone that has any claims against CRUISE LINES as they are I guess evil and responsible for untold dasterdly deeds inflicted upon these poor soles. :evil: The only people that make money out of this are those slimy attorneys! I know it is easier to just pay these false claims off and be done with it but I really wish that businesses would stop giving in to them and start fighting back and countersueing them. Man has this gotten me ticked off!
I just spilled Coke on my keyboard. I would have sued both Coke for not putting their product in a spill proof container and Dell for not making their computers waterproof but I dropped the phone and it broke, making it unusable.
Hmm, maybe I can sue Uniden.
It is getting ridiculous that people no longer take personal responsibility and always look for someone else to blame for just about anything.
There are times when litigation is required but it is at the point now when lawyers actually push people into thinking they should file for anything.

Legitimate law suits are just that.....legitimate!
But most people don't realize that there is a cost associated with defending against, settling or pursuing frivolous suits. People think the big bad company is paying but really, who pays? We do. Those costs are passed right on to the end user or consumer.
The most disgusting thing I've heard of lately is the mother of the infant who was shot while her drug-induced husband held the child while having a shootout with the police. The mother blames the POLICE for the death of her child, NOT the lowlife scumdog who put his own CHILD in harm's way! Disgusting, idiot, ignorant and pititful, I think!! Maybe SHE is to blame for her child's death since she allowed her druggie husband to take the child ANYWHERE!

do you all recall last year's viral outbreaks on some cruise lines, and that there were lawyers standing on the pier handing out business cards, these lawyers are the lowest of the low, we used to call them " Ambulance Chasers"

You may like to know that (at the moment) lawyers/solicitors/eagle beagels (whatever you call them) are not allowed to advertise here on Tv or Radio - only in papers etc.
Sure it will happen one day though - but I must admit we are always in stiches when we see the commercials on American TV - I even remember last year seeing one that seriously advertised for those guys that wanted to sue a Pharmaceutical Company after taking ****** and being rather embarrassed for over 4 hours witha certain added appendage after taking it
Is good entertainment for us Brits - much better than some of your actual programmes
P.S. - have been having difficulties posting - anybody else????
I do not want to offend any lawyers(or lawyers-to-be) out there and I know some lawyers are needed,etc. but there sure seems to be a lot of them out there. And not for one second, do I think they should be paid more than neurosurgeons, and other specialized(or any) Medical Doctors.
Banker-what was your avatar??...
Lombard-yes-maybe we can get a group lawsuit against CC for his psychological trauma!! Just kidding CC!!(I saw Spaceballs.) I must find myself an avatar one day!!

Kimmie, When did you get back? Haven't you been gone on a trip or something? Anyway, it is good to hear from you.
I think some of the ads today, are totally off the charts. All those meds!!
Oh great, it helps me to have a better sex life, but causes stomach upset, headache, liver enlargement, and oh by the way, once the flag has been raised, you can't get the darn thing to go down again. really not a good thing for the crease in your dockers.
The lawyers are bad but so are the judges who award people with ignorant claims. When did we get smart enough to let kids sue their parents and people sue fast food chains for making them fat, or for hot coffee burning you (did you order ice coffee?) I think it is really sad that the whole legal system seems headed down hill. The part that makes me the maddest is that now judges are taking away my rights for people who were never forced to observe my rights in the first place. :evil:
