    Re: Lawsuits are getting out of hand!!!

    Shame on the lawyers who take on cases like this. If someone comes into your office with a problem like this, you should say thanks but no thanks and show them the door. It's no wonder the state judicial system is backed up for years. It should absolutely be malpractice for a lawyer to bring a frivilous suit like this.

    Someone give me a history lesson....

    When did America cease to become a great nation and become a nation of people who think they are owed something for doing nothing?

    I HATE the general public more and more everyday!

    A detached retina is frivolous? I'm suing all posters who claim this is ridiculous, for suggesting such a thing.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    No... it is fixable, $25,000 (half of which will go to the lawyer) is frivolous!

    I don't know, 25k doesn't seem like a whole lot considering the cost of surgery, hospital stay, and missed work time.

    Re: Lawsuits are getting out of hand!!!

    Seems like a perfectly legitimate claim to me and the amount seems reasonable. The question will be whether the Royals are protected by all the warnings baseball teams give for objects entering the stands (foul balls). But hey, it involves a hot dog so it must be frivolous.

    "Coomer said the wayward wiener caused a detached retina and the development of cataracts in his left eye."

    If this is true, I would sue them too. A detached retina and the development of cataracts (debatable) i think is a reason to sue. If this is true, then shame on most of you.

    Since I started going to pro/minors games way back in little league, the first thing we were always told by parents/coaches was PAY ATTENTION. Who knows what will come flying your way. It's like when McDonalds started putting warnings on their coffee cups after some lady sued them because she spilled hot coffee on herself and sued them. Did she want cold coffee then? No. It was clearly her fault in the first place for spilling but she still got paid.

    Sounds to me like this guy should be the one getting sued for not trying to catch a free hot dog!!

    Your detached retina isn't our problem regardless if we caused it and it was with our property.

    Re: Lawsuits are getting out of hand!!!

    You were also probably being told to pay attention while the game was going on as was I as a kid, between innings not so much. Also important to note is that the suit has only been filed not decided and there is a reasonable chance it is actually the injured fan's insurance that is bringing about the suit provided he had health insurance that covered his injuries.
