As per usual, Americans try to blame everyone but themselves or their own.

Suing people is actually a way to make a living over there. I have a friend who does just that. Although his reasons are genuine. Incompetence from a Surgeon killed his Wife and a year later his dad was killed by an incompetent truck driver.

The NTSB ruled that it was improper maintenance carried out.....that's good enough for me in this case.


Muricans don't let little technicalities like that get in the way of earning free greenbacks!

Not particularly no. I have several very good friends in America. Most of whom I would take a bullet for. And the list of people on that particular list is short.
But they agree with me. The standard murican is an asshat who takes no responsibility for themselves or their actions. They sue anyone and anything that stands in their way. It their current overly litigious culture, there is always someone else to blame and get money from when something goes wrong.

The litigation mania is in orbit in the USA as we all know. I would hate to accidentally bump someone in a shopping mall and get sued because they claim they are having nightmares etc :stars:

The problem with the jury system is that they are awarding unreasonable sums of money in some cases. Take for instance the woman who spilt hot coffee on herself and sued MacDonalds for a huge sum and won!

You guys make it sound like the USA is the only country that works this way.
You wrong.
It’s happening in South Africa also.
Just look at the road accident fund.
As to the Jury system. I prefer that then to have one Judge acting on his own.

Justice went to pot when politicians started re-writing the laws.
