So you want to sue someone?

Since we have a large ad in the yellow pages, we get a lot of phone calls with people looking for an attorney to help them with their particular legal situation. I received a call this morning from a person that had purchased spoiled chicken from a store and they wanted to see what they could do about it. I’m sure there is some attorney out there that would go after the store’s insurance company to get a small settlement out of it but we aren’t in the business of encouraging lawsuits when there doesn’t need to be one. She didn’t get violently ill, she didn’t go to the hospital or have outrageous medical bills. She said she spit out the chicken as soon as she realized it was spoiled. I told her that I didn’t think it was worth it for her to contact an attorney and at this point she still might do it but I hope that at the very least she thinks about it. We normally receive requests that are very legitimate and that actually require the legal expertise of an attorney. I’m happy to give those referrals to our Certified Ethical attorneys. All I ask is that you think about your situation before thinking that you’re going to get some money out of a store just because someone didn’t check the expiration date. I’ll bet that you could easily go down to the store, show them the spoiled chicken and they would most likely give you your money back and a free chicken. That sounds like a good deal to me.
