I think the pivotal case that took law to an ugly unaccountable place was the McDonalds coffee case. I know since that verdict, lawsuits have been many, and many frivolous ones. People have lost their common sense, and deflected their own accountability for their part in a careless, ridiculous suit. We make choices everyday, however we do not want to accept the consequences or our involvement in the matter of dispute . People believe corporations have deep pockets, let them pay for our inconveniences, but really the money comes from all of us.
What about those ridiculous personal injury commercials where one of the persons in the suit says their attorney got them 100,000.00 dollars. The idea of making big money by suing is wrong. I thought ambulance chasing was illegal for attorneys, are those commercials just as illegal ?
