I think people sue each other too much. what I hate is when people sue companies for their own lack of personal responsibility. Like people who sue McDonald's because their kids are fat. Or people who sue because something was the wrong color or it hurt them "mentally." I think 90% of cases are totally bogus.

Up with sensible limits to Tort law!

There isn't actually that much of a suing culture in Europe, fortunately. However there's always the odd person who'll try to find a far fetched link and thus sue.

If you try and sue someone for something stupid like my coffee was hot then you should be fined for stupidity (you'd complain if it was cold not hot)

Well heres the most stupid one ive heard for a while

- A woman tripped over a small kid that was running around a shop. She sued the company 40 thousand dollars. the child was her own son.

Now thats just plain rediculous..

Also, my friends dad is a lawyer and he told us that there was one case where a theif robbed everything in a person's house and as he was making a getaway, he tripped on top of a metal fence and killed himself on one of the pointed railings. The theif's family sued the victims family.

what has this world come to lol

People sue corporations for one big reason...Settlements...Something around 90% of civil cases never even make it to court due to settlements. Now why are corporations, and even sometimes individuals, willing to settle before going to court? Two reasons: lawyer costs and the possibility of having to pay out a much larger figure if they lose...Nice system, huh?

Like someone said.... PEOPLE ARE GREEDY! The Need Money !! They don't work for a living so instead they con people out of money X_X Well Not ALL people do that, some people sue for the tiniest thing! you should only be allowed to sue if it's severe =(.. thats just my opinion..

When I become a lawyer someday soon ... I'll only help those who truly need it! >_<!

I agree, some people are just too darn greedy. Sure, some things are valid reasons to sue over, but others definitely not, especially petty things or things where the other person is at fault. I think people just want attention when they sue.

I agree that lawsuits are a dime a dozen now adays, and they are all frivolous true, but some are real.

On the whole tho, ppl sue for practically nothing...Heck my grandfather sued my dad like 8 years ago because him and his new wife were greedy bastards...
