40 - the dentist didn't leave that note. The receptionist did. 1 - if OP hasn't had an infection or any other recurring problems, then there is no reason to sue. The only time a law suit is worth it is when someone is killed or critically injured by someone else's stupidity OR if someone owes you money. You can't solve the worlds problems by suing every time someone makes a mistake. A girl once sued my former employer, and when they left she told him she did it just for "fun" because she was in law school and wanted to see how the system worked. Her "fun" cost my employer a whole day of business because he had no one who could manage the place in his absence. He won the case but he still lost lots of money.
No one is debating whether suing is always morally correct or not. Obviously it isn't. Technically, though, a lawsuit IS worth it in many cases where no one died or was seriously injured. Think about the lady that sued McDonalds after spilling coffee on herself. Any realistic person can tell you she doesn't deserve the money she got and that it isn't right, but it still happens and unfortunately does work in many cases.
58, The woman who got burned by Mcdonalds coffee absolutely did deserve every penny she was paid, and in my opinion, more. The coffee was way too hot--much hotter than any coffee would be if it was made at home. She got third degree burns all over her thighs and genitals. Just imagine what would have happened if she had drank the coffee! And as compensation for her pain, suffering, medical bills, and permanent disfigurement, all she got was about $700,000. Would you willingly sustain 3rd degree burns on your genitals and thighs for $700,000? I know I wouldn't.
86- That woman was also operating a vehicle while holding the drink in her lap with her thighs. Explain to me how that was mcdonald's fault. To answer your question, I do know what she would have done if she had tried to drink it. she would have gotten .0003 seconds worth of drink in her mouth before thinking ” FUCK! This shit is hot.” Crisis averted. Crazy how logic works, huh?
As a dental nurse, we have to warn every single patient that undergoes root canal treatment that there is a chance this will happen. The files that we use in the canals are so thin. You need something that fits into a hole the size of a pin prick. Yes what happened should have been sorted out before now. But sometimes, unfortunately, this just happens.
86- she definitely did not deserve that at all. I can't see how its McDonalds fault when you spill your coffee, that's like trying to sue Canada because the winter is cold and you don't enjoy cold weather. I agree 100% with 99, logic is a handy little thing many people throw out the window nowadays
As a dental nurse I resent that. The dentist I work with is damn clever and one of the nicest people you could wish for. We are well aware people don't like coming to see us, but we do our dammed best to put them at ease. It's people like you who claim we are all stupid that makes our jobs so hard.
Fuck you and everyone who thinks like you. All of you are the reason why the American legal system is so royally fucked.
