David Pfahler, a 60 year old lawyer from Pennsylvania, had a little skiing accident last January in Vail. Pfahler collided with a 48-pound, 7 year-old boy and fell and went boom. He’s now suing the 8 year-old for $75,000 to cover his physical therapy, the “nursing services” provided by his wife and the cost of the vacation time he had to take to recover from his obviously severe injuries. This has nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that Pfahler is an insufferable weenie prick, or the extensive waivers that cover the ski resorts from being sued if you injure yourself engaging in a dangerous pastime or any stupid laws that allow people to sue for anything under the sun and win, nosireebob. That kid needs to learn a fucking lesson, people. [Boston.com]

    Yes, all lawyers suck, as this post is so appropriately tagged. That is, all lawyers suck, except those lawyers who realize that all lawyers suck and therefore do something to change that. I’ve known a few in that category and they’re always fine and fair people, unlike whoever David Pfahler is. The fact is that if he was skiing in Vail and had physical therapy done before getting any money from suing the kid, then he can afford both his medical bills and his wife’s “nursing services.” What a tool.

    This is a lawsuit happy nation, and this is just another case that strengthens that. Anything for a buck.
