How am I gonna pay for these injuries?!? I'm gonna sue that guy who hit me it's my only option!
I'm sorry about your condition sir, but you're lucky to be alive.
As a person is driving through the city at night, he gets distracted by a pretty woman walking along the sidewalk. He doesn't fully stop for a pedestrian crossing the street.
Plaintiff's Claim & Rationale
The pedestrian gets rammed by the car and the woman rushes to see if he's okay. The pedestrian is in critical condition.
Defense of Defendant
That's a terrible defense for hitting someone, there's a reason we have testing for license.
The pedestrian is left in a critical condition and can't afford the medical bill he will receive so he decides to sue the driver who hit him.
I am now a paraplegic due to the defendant's irresponsible, dsitracted driving! The medical bill for the surgery to keep me alive was well over $67 000!
The only reason I had hit him was because there was a hot woman on the sidewalk and I couldn't see clearly due to the incident being at night.
I have decided to award the plaintiff $2 000 000 in general damages for being left as a paraplegic and suffering the great amount of pain. $200 000 in compensatory damages for the procedure and wheelchair. The defendant most definitely breached their duty of care as a driver, and left the plaintiff in a critical, permanent condition. There should be no tolerance for distracted driving, especially being distracted by a woman.
