    If she wins and the insurnace company has to pay out it will get appealed and drag on for years,
    But every deadbeat will start suing themselves for every little accident.

    Well, anyone who thinks the American legal system is bubblegumed has to now look no further than this case to prove we will allow any crazy bubblegum case to get appealed and go to court. No wonder things are so backed up...

    My hope is that since they said a jury will get to decide how much she should receive for harming herself, that they decide she gets nothing for causing harm to herself. But I don't have much faith in that.

    Only if they can make an argument that they are two separate legal entities.

    In that sense, she isn't suing herself - the estate of her husband, for which she is a representative, is suing her, and by extension, her insurance company.

    So basically what it boils down to is the estate is suing the insurance company.

    It would not be a common case where that is possible, and certainly not in "every little accident".

    Their estates can certainly file suit, and have.

    They can also be sued, and have.

    I think they should award her a bottle of wine.
    And maybe a bottle of sleeping pills?
    Just a thought:rolleyes:

    I view jury duty as a civil responsibility.
    I would be furious if I got pulled out of work to listen to this woman's "case". This is an abuse of the system and is the essence of frivolous.

    That what a judge has decided.


    That is the reasoning she is claiming.
