More depositions for the lawsuits tomorrow. Oh joy.
Lemme predict how these will go ... PERFECT MEMORY on every issue beneficial to them,
but when something could be bad ... "Not sure" "Don't remember" "can't recall" ...
Amazing. Fucking asshole liars.

Lawyer told me not to appear today. Opposing council is getting pissy about something and the whole deal is off. Gets better. The "kid" is going back to college and they won't be having them till the summer. Yay, we can dick around with this for another 6 months.
Mumble grumble mumble ... Fucking jerkoffs.

Good luck, Classic. Lawsuit sucks, and it can drag out for a long time. Lawyers will find reasons to drag it out when it benefits them and it will only cost you more money.

Sorry, Classic. Good luck in what sounds like a long, miserable process.

thanks ... I'm well adapted to the legal BS... Still bullshit. The opposing council has no case and she knows it. She thought they'd cave and since they didn't all she can do is drag it out appearing to make an effort.
I have done virtually all the legwork and supplied my atty with so much ammo its ridiculous. For example, kid claimed (under oath) he cannot raise his arm or use it like before ... I had over a dozen images, some of him holding girls up, dancing etc. etc. and a couple videos countering also. One included him skydiving and another of him skitching behind a quad.
Why we are still doing this is beyond me, but ...

I hope you turn around and pursue a civil action for fraud against that lying little fucker. Great job on collecting the documentary evidence. That should make a big impact

Depends. There are two different suits going on.
1) Other Kid in Car is suing Dan & others.
2) Dan suing Party holders/Alcohol providers.

Re: 1 - I wouldn't settle for a dollar.
Re: 2 Probably a year away from even knowing.

Yes. Apparently in cases like this it is common for countersuits to be filed.
For over two years I did nothing. I was focused on his "recovery" and never addressed the question:
What good will come of punishing the other kids who also mad a bunch of bad decisions?
Then the other suit was filed and I had to get real and admit that as much as he has "improved" from basically zero,
that he will always need some type of supervision, guidance, guardianship...
AND that he'll most likely never be independent, hold a full time job etc etc. There will be a need for someone to care for him forever.
I'm doing it now, but I'm not gonna be around forever & its not fair for his siblings to be forced to do it, so ...
As we got into the facts of what happened that night, the other suit was filed.
Meh, we'll see what happens. I have virtually no expectations, so its sort of a no loss situation for him.

Shock hit Friday with a call from the atty DEFENDING son (Case 1 in post #54).
The trail was to begin on 2/11. The Insurance Company settled with the little fucker.
W0W!!!! They initially wanted $150,000 for basically a night in the hospital.
Then the depositions came and all the work *I* did including images and videos of the bastard doing everything he said he could no longer do "surfaced" and were emailed around..
$125 - then $100 ... $75 ... $50 - the Ins Co offered them $30 and they took it.
Its great that the total will be paid from insurance and son will not have to deal with it, but they really REALLY deserve like $5000 for some unpaid medical bills.
At least its settled and over, but I'm still angry that they got anything. Fukkers.
Atty told me that by the time all is said & done, they'll end up with less than $10k.

As for Case 2 ... no clue. One down, I guess that's good.

People will commonly file frivolous lawsuits after MVAs, slip and falls, etc. There's no down-side for them and an excellent chance of collecting something. The only times they seem to get punished for doing it are if they're defrauding Workers Comp or the disability system. But private suits? It's far cheaper for the insurance company to settle than to go to court. Free money for them, higher premiums for the rest of us.

Your son's suit, where he will need ongoing care, is not frivolous.
