    This. I find it crazy how quickly people defend the multi-millionaires living lavish lives and diminish the victim who's quality of life has been drastically reduced.

    I don't think Thompsen is a bad or dangerous person - which is why she is not facing any criminal charges. She was negligent and did something really stupid though, so her and Ceci (in the eyes of the law they are one) should provide significant compensation, especially since they can more than afford it.

    I expect it to be settled relatively quickly. At least I hope it would be.

    It's actually kind of sad that it has seemingly come to this for Ceci/Thomson/Engel.

    If I had made ~$17 million in my life and my fiance (accidentally) burned my good friend (or good friend's fiance) I'd like to think I'd front the money for the medical bills and such. You gotta think the relationship deteriorated pretty quick if the matter is with the courts.

    Really horrifying situation regardless though. Kind of a reminder about how quickly things can change.

    Sometimes it feels like groundhog day. The prospect pool is always going to produce outsized amounts of studs. Then it doesn't. But .. then just wait until next year! The next group!

    It's exactly because he's made $17 million that this is occurring. You can't separate the two.

    Because he has a large amount of assets, it is worth the benefit to the victim to try and secure significant damages as income replacement far and away above anything insurance would pay.

    Combine that with her father being a lawyer in the area, yeah this was always gonna be the case.

    Read the whole story. My speculation is that the daddy "ambulance chaser" lawyer pushed them to go all in on a lawsuit as stated to get some major cash.

    I would think Ceci offered some kind of settlement before this $8M came about.

    anyone else in a similar situation would do the same. The injuries do seem severe.

    I'd sue their asses too, doing dumb **** cuz you're drunk and not educating yourself on operating a device with serious hazards isn't an excuse.

    Rich people are always at more risk for being sued because they have more to lose and are worth going after, boo hoo, they'll still live better than more than 99% of the population after the settlement, mean while this poor girls life is practically ruined.

    I would hope so. She definitely deserves some compensation. Anyone in that situation would.

    My beef is the article itself. They talk like she had some amazing career or skills to make millions, and also added everyone in the family as plaintiffs. Makes it feel more like a big money grab than a legitimate claim for lost compensation. To ask for $8 million....that's really excessive, even considering they're starting high to get the price they want in negotiation.

    Actually that’s exactly how it works though. It’s painful and stressful and traumatizing to have a loved one severely injured. That person was removed from their daily lives by the negligence of one person. Compensation is owed to them as well.
    Also, this young woman had her own yoga studio. How do you know it wouldn’t be the next Greco or Movati?

    She can still have a yoga studio. As a matter of fact, she could use her injuries to help launch new services in the studio, specifically for those who have had injuries and need rehabilitation. Heck, that's one thing I'd be looking at long-term...not only as a new niche in the industry, but also as one of those inspirational life stories that have multiple areas of revenue streams.

    Knew this lawsuit was coming.
    Even if it was an accident, this is a girl that sued another company because their logo looked like hers and her dad is a lawyer.

    I certainly hope it didn't turn out, can't imagine a bigger waste of time and money than that logo lawsuit. Especially if they need to prove the logo was inspired by hers, since there's a less than zero chance Lamelo Ball was driving down Carling one day and decided "oh hey, that would look good on my shoe".

    Now this one against Ceci et. al is a different story; there's obviously grounds for significant compensation there and I hope she get's a considerable sum. Wouldn't wish what she went through on anyone.

    OT: but thank god the music industry doesn't often have lawsuits over similar songs. Otherwise the Beatles would own Oasis and Nickelback would have sued themselves many times over.

    I would have given a 3rd for erne. He stood out a lot for me in games last year. Extremely good at puck protection and can contribute from 3rd or 4th line. I know we have a kind of logjam of prospects atm but his puck protection was great. Maybe yzerman gets first dibs..

    I mean he could probably get that here lol.

    Also, why I get that players have to earn ice-time, struggling young forwards aren't helped by being stuck in the bottom 6.

    Look at Turris:He was being underused in Phoenix and wasn't performing well at all: When he got to Ottawa and played next to Alfie he excelled.
