As most liberals, you are extremely selective in what you want to bring to
the table, and ignore facts, which I took a bit of time to lay out for you.
You ignored 90% of my post and took a snippet out of context. To try to get
me and others to believe that someone would pay a bill four or five times
what it would cost to have the insurance in the first place is, well, just
damn silly. But, it is not my job to educate. I mean, if someone wants to
listen and discuss facts, not liberal talking points, then I'll go there.
But you don't believe me and that is your right.
Wolfpuppy is done with this issue.
Yes. OT for how the thead detoured. "Lots of friends that are lawyers"...
me too. I graduated with several of them years ago.
BTW, OT is used so that those who aren't interested can avoid reading
and/or downloading the thread.
I don't need to google it; I live here. It was nearly local news. And,
yes, it was frivolous. The lady in question had the cup between her legs
and it spilled. Ok, sorry about that, but that doesn't justify huge sums of
money. They serve hot coffee because those of us who drink hot coffee want
it that way. You know it's hot when you order it, and you know it will burn
you if you spill it on you. And if you are going to put it between your
legs and try to drive, well, you are asking for it. Furthermore, it was not
an intentional act on the part of McDonalds...it was an accident brought
about by the negligence of the woman.
Come-on, for christs sake, can't we, for once, start treating adults like
adults and hold people accountable for their own actions?
ALL this is UNTRUE and exemplifies the epitome of ignorance!
You should learn how to do legal research and learn FACTS before
you go spouting off falsity, but then most people believe the MYTH
of the movie "Inherit the Wind" too! SHEEP!
THE ONLY thing about this lawsuit that should be changed is the
FACT that the elderly 83 year old nearly burned to death woman
did NOT receive a fraction of the highly publicized verdict! But of
course the PROPAGANDA that passes for News did NOT bother
to inform you of that FACT! Of the less than half the amount she
received, the attorneys fees, court costs, etc., were deducted. She
had to SUE to get part of her medical bills paid!
FWIW, rarely do people receive the amount of these big mega-million
dollar verdicts against corps. The bottom line is: do the crime if you
can pay, and THEY do! They settle out of court and recoup their
losses from their CUSTOMERS! The verdict in the McDonalds Hot Coffee
case was a mere fraction of a drop of water in the ocean to them.
One day you will be older (if you're lucky) and perhaps you will then
begin to have some degree of understanding about life and people.
As it is, you appear to be a young ignorant teeny-bopper who has been
spoiled with his parents paying all his expenses, thus he remains a
helpless ignoramous, totally oblivious to others' and REAL LIFE!
Your Sin-City mirror is reflecting you. Being from Cincy, puts all this
along with your moniker in its proper perspective! McDonald's Hot Coffee
Lawsuit should have resulted in the permanently disfigured lady
receciving a hundred times the amount she received. Down with
ceilings on torts! Up the ante on punitive damages to include a sign
around the neck at noon in the courthouse's public square and a ten
year sentence of working for minimum wage for the CEO and corp. mgrs.
In the previous currency relationship a Canadian M-B dealer delivered
"Canadian" cars to US buyers in border cities. Their claim was that the
cars were built to "North American" specs and that only the gauges had
to be reset from the metric standard. The car's warranty would
supposedly be covered by MBUSA rather than MBCANADA. That's a point that
I'd really check because one doesn't want to own a complex car with no
The warranty seems to be a north american warranty. At least my 2002
C-Class was that way. I certainly would want to be certain that I have
coverage for a US vehicle in Canada. Again, If anyone has some insight
and experience, please let me know.
It's a well understood, fairly common and predictable procedure. It's easier
for cars 15 years or older where you just drive up, pau gst and
your off, because newer cars have to go through some extra crap but
it's still well worth doing.
I've done it three times. Recommended.
