How to Avoid Frivolous Lawsuits
Frivolous lawsuits are every person’s worst nightmare. And it’s no secret that the USA is a litigious society.
Frivolous litigation is when one party sues another party while having disregard for the merit of the argument. In other words, it’s filing a lawsuit for reasons that most individuals would consider ridiculous. Unfortunately, lawsuits of any type can run up huge costs, often bankrupting a person or business.
A new lawsuit is filed every 20 seconds in America. Your odds of being sued each year are greater than ending up in a hospital. And the cost of defending yourself – even if you’re found innocent – can easily total up to $40,000 or more.
The good news is that there is a way to protect yourself. Taking out liability insurance ensures your legal costs are covered if you are sued. This holds whether you are sued for frivolous reasons or otherwise.
Examples of Frivolous Lawsuits
It’s estimated that Americans spend over $300 billion a year in litigation. And the cost of frivolous lawsuits can be huge. In 2016, Subway was looking at setting a class-action lawsuit because its “footlong” sandwich was discovered to be one inch shy of a foot. Attorneys involved in the case were to receive $520,000 in fees, but the judge dismissed both the settlement and the case.
There’s also a case where an Aunt sued her nephew for $127,000 after the hug he gave her caused her to fall and break her wrist. There was even a man who tried to sue a dry cleaner for $54 million after they lost his pair of trousers. While most of these lawsuits are ultimately unsuccessful, it’s important to note that they can still cost the accused thousands of dollars in legal fees. In rare cases, they are successful. Then those costs can run into the hundreds of thousands or even millions
