Above The Law--Always a Must Read
According to the lawsuit Mary Jones was at La' James International College, when a large shampoo bottle was dropped on her head causing her injuries: to wit, two years of headaches. Unfortunately, the Des Moines Register article leaves more questions than answers. I confess that as I go through my day I will suffer intrusive thoughts of poor Mary and falling objects of all sorts that might harm her or others.
Seriously, though haven't personal injury attorneys done enough to undermine respect for the law? Can you say McDonald's Hot Coffee? Let me be clear, I fully confess to having played my part in this game. I've represented some real doozy(s).
I promise, we will continue to explore the absurdities of a legal career built on the pursuit of the ambulance and the suffering of others, pro and con. Yeah, I concede there are positives, whether the positives balance the insult to our intelligence remains to be seen. What a noble profession the law is!
