You know that we all pay for it in the end, right?
Spinal cord injury or serious brain damage? No.

But what if you get like 1/10 of this case? (so $220,000) for injuries that are lighter? Such as "whiplash" or broken ankle.
Or even 1/20 of the price, which is $110,000 for bruise, cuts, scratches, emotional damage, blah blah blah...

My point was, maybe people will start climbing on to city's property.
In the states, after McDonald's hot coffee incident, everyone started claiming "burn" for spilling coffee.
Same as wet floor, aka slip n' fall. That's a very common one.

ok apparently this incident happened back in 2007
B.C. ordered to pay injured American youth $2.2 million after lamp post fall | Vancouver Sun

took almost a decade for judgement and most likely they're gonna appeal?

17 YOs should know better...but technically still not an adult. Play with fire and get burned...majority of us went through taht to some degree just that in his case it's serious and permanent

I do argue it's BS they award him compensation based on a distant potential career. Like seriously he's in high school...with average grades that don't mean shit-all as an indication for becoming a physician.

and how did the judge come up with that arbitrary number of 35%?

the thing is, i wasn't being sarcastic. he did reveal another flaw. the post should have held his weight. his stupid act WAS a sacrifice.

the 2 mill is nothing. any amount he'd rather go back in time and not fallen off.

there's no such thing as "accepting responsibility"... whatever happens after is deterministic and that is automatically linked to your actions... cuz cause and effect. if you are the direct cause, you are directly linked to it. you dont have to accept anything. whatever happens happens. you have no choice.

no matter his stupidity, he already paid the price... he's physically fucked lol.

the focus is there is another stupid mistake... pole rusted to the core... they shouldn't be rusted to the core, period. so ... yeah... the judgement makes sense does it not? we pay our taxes and we aren't poor as shit... the city should be maintained better.

anyways, anyone that sustains any perma crippling injury is usually awarded a minimum of 1 million dollars. it's completely normal.

silvia i have a couple asian guy friends that do very well with the ladies. but guess what, they go to the gym, they dont have long hair, they dont wear orange pants, and they dont play counterstrike. its not the ethnicity that the girls dont like, its the style and personality.
450HP Supra I am about to use your eye sockets as a shoe rack for my nuts. ...something about chinks, j-bodys, I can't quite remember as I was drunk and looking for a girl to punch in the clit. Think of it as a digital urinal, and you are the mint, except, instead of actually smelling mint, you smell like mothballs, rotten kimchee and virginity. I'm about to start drinking heavily now and you better be gone before I get back or I swear to god I will break the internet over my knee and use the pieces to beat you in the deformed skull with, cock muffler.
