    Sad, sad way of seeing the importance of money versus the importance of health. I will never ever understand people like you. Money is only a tool. You need only some of it to help you be happy (as long as other things are well in life) and live well. If you need 8 millions to make you happy even at the expence of damaging your health seriously, something must be seriously wrong in your life.

    I don't believe you for even a second. And if you would you would regret that decision for the rest of your life.

    I would pick being reliably in the middle class with my health and living to a older age over one of the most excruciating experiences a human can go through over literally any amount of money. I also don't believe anyone who says they would do it actually would if they were faced with getting doused with the flammable liquid, the reality would set in that they aren't behind a keyboard anymore and they would be out so fast.

    Except, no, it isn't. There is far more litigation in the US vs Canada. There are several statistics you can look up, but start here (it being a law forum, a summary of a study):

    The View From Up North: Who’s More Litigious, Canada or the United States?

    These are some corporate law statistics:
    Canadian Respondants:
    1 to 5 cases against them in the past 12 months - 33%
    51 or more cases against them in the past 12 months - 10%

    American Respondants:
    1 to 5 cases against them in the past 12 months - 26%
    51 or more cases against them in the past 12 months - 18%

    That's near double the amount of companies in the US facing more than a case raised against them per week. that's a pile of cases.

    There are several other stats there.... Like, on average, American companies have 5 times as many in-house lawyers than their Canadian counterparts.

    Additionally, statistically civil litigation is more common per capita, my multiples. I can provide stats on that if you like as well (roughly about 4 times as many per capita)

    The conclusion they came to:
    It appears you're Canadian. I'm guessing you just don't have much insight into what goes on in the US.

    Thats what insurance is for bud. Do you think that the 8m will be getting garnished right off of Cody Ceci's hockey pay check? Lol.

    If she had been fraternizing with a less wealthy group of people that had less assets, less insurance coverage, and less earning power, then yes, she would not be getting as much in compensation. Boy oh' boy did she ever hit the jackpot eh......:facepalm:

    This girl deserves every cent of that money, and the only saving grace is that the accident was caused by people who are able to compensate her fully for something that will affect her for the rest of her life. You really dont have any idea how horrible burns are to live with, apparently.

    He actually provided facts. You have provided an opinion. Want to say he is wrong? Have something more then an opinion.

    Not really. There are statistics to back it up. Like some I've posted, and I can readily post more. There are 391 lawyers per 100K in the US, 26 in Canada. Funny how that is isn't it........ that one is according to Harvard Law....... Want me to post a link to that?


    Anyway, you can come up with something to back up what you say, or drivel on, and I'm not going to respond with anything other than telling you that you have nothing.

    Your link is a survey and opinion. And that is fact? If you say so

    Further only 11 percent of respondents of that survey were from Canad. A ****ing survey. From corporations....is your proof

    That survey, regardless of sampme size, is far more than youve provided.

    Want the harvard law study too???

    Sorry, youve got nothing. Nada.

    Oh ok since you say so. Your little survey proves it to me. Your source is opinion and nothing more. Sure let’s see the Harvard study

    Have a link for that fact too? I suspect if you do, it’s also wrong. Do you admit opinion is wrong? Interesting

    That's how lawsuits tend to work but usually when an employee of a corporation ****s up. Or a parent. Generally someone with a duty to properly supervise or is responsible for the lack of training/teaching that caused the accident.

    Really not sure what legal theory she could use against Cody. Unless Canada has some legal maxim that asserts a vicarious liability standard under a negligence claim to someone's romantic partner. Which I really doubt. From what I gather this was a social event but Cody's girlfriend was not an employee or agent of his to establish he had some duty to control her negligence.

    Probably gonna have Cody dropped as a party to the lawsuit. But, if the damages are reasonably calculated to be 8 million the girlfriend can still be held liable for that amount. And by extension, presuming Cody doesn't dump her, he's probably gonna be on the hook for the victim's award. At least partially.

    It's btw cute that after all these responsible instructions fine-detailing all the legal caveats, the final paragraph reveals the page to be the work of a legal agency that offering to represent you in case your host had failed to live up to the instructions.
