Woman Sues Railroad

Posted by Hello

A woman who suffered minor injuries when she was hit by a train while walking along railroad tracks is suing the railroad for more than $30,000 . She says the railroad didn't warn people that trains were likely to travel on the tracks she was walking along.

More wacky lawsuits.

    Only in America!

    Reminds me of the Mc Donald's coffee lawsuit.

    I guess the big loud engine thing didn't give her a clue.

    I wonder how to stop this stuff. She stands to win $30,000. Maybe things would change if she risked losing $30,000 if a jury determined it was a stupid lawsuit.

    And I haven't heard before of "minor" injuries from being hit by a train. That seems to mean a v..e..r..y.. slow moving train that scratched her, because she didn't move out of the way!!

    Plus she was trespassing...

    Oh, and the worst thing is she'll get it too!

    these kinda of things drive me crazy. So much money is wasted, so much time wasted. I wish there were laws preventing these kind of things and the lawyers that support them.

    Random Acts of Verbage...

    Today has been the Day Of Unbelievable Law and Order Cases, and you've just added another tally to the list. I wonder if the folks in the areas ravaged by the tsunami are just gaping their mouths at our own country's example regarding the carrying out of justice and what's really worthy of compensation.

    You're right, Helen. As you point out on your excellent blog, the Andrea Yates case is remarkably unfair to the little murdered kids; at least these are somewhat funny. And I wouldn't worry too much about what the tsunami victims think of our courts. They probably aren't interested right now anyway.
