Yeah, I'm generally not one for jumping to litigation, but if the prankster is unwilling to pay for this really stupidly planned prank, OP should speak to a lawyer. Roommate took reckless action and it resulted in injury and financial loss (fixing said teeth). Good luck, OP.

37 is referring to OP's roommate. The FML said "he", which is a masculine pronoun, so it's a pretty safe assumption the prankster is a he. 37 was just correcting the usage of "her" by #2.

exactly! It says an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth! In this case for the pain and suffering of first such a juvenile stunt second the ignorance of a so-called friend not willing to pay for that ignorance..... you need to make sure your friend loses at least 3. people shouldn't do unto others what they don't want done to themselves, remind him of that as he's picking his teeth, plural remember, teeth off the floor lol

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind #56. While the prank was unwarranted, getting revenge is not the way to go about things. Judging by the FML, this would cause a prank war. One which I think would hurt OP in the long run.

I agree with #56, give him a timeframe to pay for the dental bill. If he refuses, I can see a accidental baseball bat impacting his teeth.

It's like this OP, your roommate made a stupid decision to prank you that had unforseen consequences. Now you can make a big stink over it and sue them which will cost you thousands in legal bills and probably never get the money. Does your roommate deserve to pay for your dental bills? Yes. Will they? Likely not. At least not all at once. Instead of wasting time agonizing over the money and dragging it into court, try a payment plan where your roommate can slowly pay for your care.

Whoa whoa... that's a little extreme, kick him in the shin or something, but you can do some serious damage to the groin. You can always get a fake tooth, but try replacing something down stairs...

She can still sue him, if she wins which in all probability she will. The judgment is good for up to five years depending on which state she is in. Again depending on what state, it may give her the ability to garnish his wages, and force him to sell personal property. He would be so much better off to admit he fucked up and pay the bill, garnishment can show up on your credit report and follow you for years.

This is not at all CLOSE to assault. Assault is a criminal charge. This is a civil matter. Best course of action is to sue for restitution.

The charge is called Negligent Assault, and he certainly can be criminally charged for causing the OPs injuries, as I insinuated. If you are in law school, I suggest studying a bit harder.

78, what the hell are you talking about? A verbal threat isn't necessary for something to be called assault. The fact that you think so is somewhat alarming.

I think because this is a civil case it's not worth your time at all. It would take probably 3 years to even come to a solution.

File the paperwork, then apply on Judge Judy, Peoples Court, and the rest of the judge shows. See who picks it up first and get a free all expenses trip to NY or LA.
