Bella Awards

from Maryland Injury Lawyer Blog

It is time for the 2011 Bella awards. Without further ado:

  • #5: On October 10, 2010, after three days of deliberation, the jury read a verdict of $10.10 in an Atlanta, Georgia wrongful death case. Asked later, a juror said, "We are sorry that guy died. But the irony of awarding $10.10 was irresistible. We actually waited a few minutes to give our verdict at 10:10 a.m. Get it now? $10.10. Great, right?"
  • #4: A jury in Orlando, Florida gave a defense verdict in a rear end accident case. The defendant claimed he put his Winnebago on cruise control and went back and made himself a sandwich. The jury agreed that it was reasonable to assume the cruise control would drive the Winnebago to its destination.
  • #3: A Richmond, Virginia jury awards no damages to a 23 year-old pedestrian who was hit by an F-150 truck while walking on the sidewalk. The jury found the Plaintiff contributorily negligent because she was singing while she was walking.
  • #2: Calvert County Maryland jury finds Defendant wrongfully shot plaintiff. With a gun. In the back. Jury awards $1.
  • #1: Patient goes to Jackson, Mississippi hospital for gallbladder surgery. Doctor amputates leg. A Houston, Texas jury finds in favor of the doctor. Afterwards, the jury told the gathered press: "Hey, anyone could make that mistake."

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
