What Is Going On With The Legal System?

Ok… I am a firm believer that if someone gets hurt in a legitimate fashion that they should be taken care of.  No… Not taken care of like that.  I think that they should have their medical, etc. bills covered.  Here is where the problem comes… Why hasn’t the government thought up any way to stop people from filing all of their money hungry, greed oriented lawsuits?

Here is what I put together on the following matter…

Fact:The child is 4.  Fact:The child was in Disney World. 

Unknown: Did this happen in Disney?  Did they see Disney personell when this happened?

Parents don’t watch their children when they are in Disney World, Disneyland, or most places for the most part.  Most parents are irresponsible, uncaring, and for the most part just as ignorant as the children.  Why was a 4 year old grabbing a tray?  Yes, I know about the whole growing up process, but I am sure that they weren’t paying attention, and he got it on him.  Was it as hot as they claim?  I honestly doubt it.  If it was, then why weren’t there more people complaining, and why weren’t there more lawsuits?

Here is why I make this comment…

The parents of a 4-year-old California boy are suing Walt Disney Parks and Resorts claiming hot nacho cheese scalded and scarred their son during a visit to Walt Disney World.
Isaiah Harris suffered “permanent scarring, pain and suffering” as a result of the burns, according to the suit, which seeks medical cost and punitive damages for emotional distress.
The boy’s parent, Michael and Maria Harris of Chula Vista. Calif., are also seeking damages saying they suffered “serious emotional distress.”
The family says the incident occured in March at Cosmic Ray’s Starlite Cafe in Tomorrowland at Disney’s Magic Kingdom theme park in Florida. They claim a paper cup with scalding cheese splashed on the child’s face when he grabbed a food tray.
“The cheese should not have been that hot,” says Sean Cahill, the family’s attorney.
Disney released a statement saying that the company is reviewing the lawsuit but is saddened by the child’s injuries. “It is unfortunate when any child is hurt.”

This is the second suit against a Disney park this week. In the other case, a quadriplegic man claims that he was stuck in the “It’s a Small World” ride for 40 minutes at Disneyland in California, and that there was no way to evacuate him in his wheelchair. He is suing for negligence and emotional distress.

People have been suing Disney, and many hundreds/thousands of other companies for things that fall into the “For What?” category for years.  I know that it won’t happen anytime soon, but I would for one understand if companies started having us sign waivers prior to entry clearing them of any “Non Related”, or “For What?” claims.

I guess I should be suing my cell phone company because the Samsung cell phones that we have don’t have warnings about using them while driving.

Let’s think of some real off the wall lawsuits… (Keep in mind that the signs for rides don’t encompass these scenarios.)

I got wet on Splash Mountain and I react badly to water., I went on Tomorrowland Speedway and got rear ended now I am cripple forever., a wheelchair ran over my foot.  Now I can’t walk.

My wife tripped and fell in Disney last year because she was looking up at the characters in the train station when she was leaving.  We didn’t sue, but if we had we probably could have won with the reason… “No caution sign at the edge of the sidewalks.”

My daughter was traumatized after almost being trampled after a show in the Magic Kingdom.  We didn’t sue for trauma.

Look back in time…(Being this is a Disney related site I will site Disney situations…)

Disney has been sued…employee headscarf ban, people falling in the parks, “Chemical release” in California, man allegedly having stroke due to “Tower of Terror”

Come on people.  Get a life.  Stop trying to make a quick buck.  These lawsuits are the cause for high prices on admissions, and different things.  Cut the garbage.
