Weird Cases Of Personal Injury
Personal injuries can happen to anyone and they’re usually caused due to negligence or by an accident. When it comes to injuries, no injury should be viewed as a laughing matter, but there certainly are some very interesting cases. In this article we will go over a few of these weird cases concerning personal injury, so stick around and learn something new.
- In California, a woman police officer arrested a suspect and tried to drive him back to the station. On the way there, he started to behave violently and became uncontrollable, after which she intended to calm him down. Of course, by calming him down, she meant to take out her Taser and tase him, but instead, since the handles are similar, she drew her gun and shot him in the chest, killing him on spot. The bizarre part of this lawsuit is that the officer took no heat from the case, but instead, people argued that any officer could make the same mistake due to how similar the handles are, so the city decided to actually sue the Taser company instead.
- Another peculiar case of personal injury arisen in Israel. A woman was watching the news in which a weather program was involved as well. The weatherman claimed that tomorrow will be a sunny day and a woman believed him. When that day came, she dressed accordingly only to get caught by the heavy rain. She then filed a lawsuit against the weatherman because his prediction was false. The cause for this lawsuit was that the woman actually sustained personal injury because she got called and ultimately caught flu. Because of this flu she endured pain, had to buy medicine and wasn’t able to work for a week. She also claimed that this entire scenario caused a lot of stress and irreparable damage to her.
She sued them for a thousand dollars and surprisingly she won the case.
