Heard last night on the T By jik | June 18, 2009 2 Comments Last night on the T, a complete stranger walked up to me and said, “You know, you really ought to sue that company!” I was amused. Share this:EmailLinkedInRedditMastodon Related
The other family claims they’re not looking for a lawsuit, but they did hire a lawyer, so who knows what’ll happen.
As for me, see my other comment on this topic as well as my blog entry about why I’m not suing.
He’s right! I’m not usually gung-ho about lawsuits, and I think a lot are indeed frivolous. I also think that there are certain types, like anti-tobacco, where the right person hitting the right jury gets a jackpot that really is owed to ALL the victims and not the lucky plaintiff. But here, the fact that there were two cases in two days … and that you, being the second one, were not the benefit of them getting their act together given the first screwup … says that it is a systemic problem. And if you sue, at least you give them something to think about.
What’s the other family doing?
