    Are we sure it was a pot hole in the black pavement and not a hole in the white concrete sidewalk that caused the injury?
    Signature not currently available. You aren't missing much.

    In Ohio they we have an "open and obvious" defense

    in other words...if you can see it...be it a pothole or a snowy or icy sidewalk, you can avoid it.

    people were always looking to profit off slip and falls on ice and the state came out with a defense that basically says ice and snow is an act of god and part of living in Ohio. So unless someone takes an action that causes the issue....like intentionally running a hose anc creating the ice, you are shit out of luck.

    doesn't keep them from suing, but it keeps them from collecting and lawyers don't like to work when they don't get paid

    surprised that New York doesn't have similar laws.

    Frivolous lawsuits always make me laugh. I had a guy try and sue me for an accident and said he had tissue damage but my mom hired a PI and caught his ass running and doing other vigorous activities. I countersued.

    I had a woman who sued because she stepped into something and broke her ankle. She was somewhere she shouldn't have been and she was drunk as well. She said she was left with a permanent limp

    as soon as the insurance company paid her up, her limp miraculously was healed

    I hate it when insurance companies pay up on frivolous crap, but for them, it's nothing personal it's just a numbers deal for them.

    Total bullshit.

    That sounds like when a burglar falls through a skylight and they sue the homeowner. As much as I blame the lawyers and the people attempting these lawsuits, where the hell are the judges? They should take one look at this and tell them to piss off.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
