Personal Injury Lawsuits

Personal injury lawsuits are the fastest growing area of litigation right now. Hundreds of personal injury lawsuits are filed each day. Personal injury lawsuits can range from the frivolous to the standard slip and fall accident to some rather large class action suits.

A few of the main areas for personal injury lawsuits involve fast food, mesothelioma, car accidents, medications, products liability, harassment, medical malpractice and tobacco.

There have been a recent flurry of asbestos-related personal injury lawsuits. A serious form of cancer called mesothelioma is contracted by inhaling asbestos fibers. Many who have worked in the construction industry in the 1970's and after are now developing mesothelioma.

Since Merck & Company voluntarily recalled Vioxx in September 2004, there have been many class action lawsuits in the makings since that time. Vioxx has been linked to both increased risk of heart attack and stroke, so personal injury attorneys are busily analyzing claims and medical records for the forthcoming lawsuits.

The tobacco industry over the past 5 years has also seen its share of personal injury lawsuits as well. Names like R. J. Reynolds, Phillip Morris and Lorillard Tobacco Company have been involved with litigation by various states and individuals as well. Activist Michael Moore in his "The Awful Truth" television series even had an episode where the "Voice Box Choir" sang Christmas carols to tobacco executives.

One cannot turn around and blink an eye without a few personal injury lawsuits being filed against the major fast food restaurants. Whether it's a finger in the chili, mucous in a burger or hot coffee in the lap, there's always a personal injury lawsuit just waiting to happen.

And taking this one step further, frivolous personal injury lawsuits are also on the rise. Such lawsuits include:

1. A man sues himself for allegedly violating his own civil rights and expects the state to pay him $5 million
2. A woman dries her wet poodle off in the microwave then sues the microwave manufacturer for having a defective product
3. One surfer sued the next one for stealing his wave, but the jury could not determine the monetary value of a wave
4. A single man sued Anheuser-Busch after he had no luck with the ladies after drinking one of their alcoholic beverages
5. A quadriplegic in Florida sued a strip club because he couldn't maneuver his wheelchair into the lap dance room in the back.

Personal injury lawsuits come in all flavors and varieties. From serious to not so serious to downright frivolous, people are flocking to the courtrooms in record numbers in order to get what is due them. Most of these personal injury lawsuits are legitimate and need to be settled either in the courts or mediated with attorneys present. While the frivolous lawsuits may be entertaining, they clog the court systems, drive up product prices for the rest of the consumers and take the focus off of those who have serious business in the courtrooms. Personal injury lawsuits need to be filed for legitimate claims only and those dealing in frivolous lawsuits need to be dealt with accordingly.
