BullsLawDan: "No one can determine if a suit is frivolous except a court. I would expect that you would have no medical bills and no lost time from work, ergo the case wouldn't even make it to a lawsuit, because the attorney, no matter how questionable his ethics, wouldn't take your case. However, I don't really think this happened to you, given legal ethics prohibit such solicitation."
I will agree that you can't recognize frivolous but it do4sn't require a court for a person who isn't an attorney to recognize frivolity. Or, are we going back to "it depends on what the meaning of is is."
No medical expenses? The chriopractor isn't free and once he's established that I have a permanently disabling injury he will certainly treat me. A very expensive treatment, too. And you totally ignore the permanently disab ling emotional injury I suffered. I'm afraid to drive now and therefore I can't work. Oh, and my god, the pain. Pain and suffering. Loss of consortium. Oh, the horror.
I listened to a burglar explain why what he did was beneficial to sosiety and his argument was no more ridiculous than yours.
Enjoy your shot at the brass ring but don't try to tell us that dirt is diamonds. Frivilous lawsuits are plentiful, often generated by lawyers, nurtured by judges, and are destructive to our society.
Assume for a moment that a nitwit chooses to walk out onto a deck with no railing and then chooses to bend over and stick a bottle rocket in his butt and when it explodes he falls off the deck. Now,he, with an attorney, is suing. This is obviously a frivolous lawsuit. But, the lawyer will make money so I suspect it's a good frivolous lawsuit.
