    Everyone thought that lawsuit where the woman was suing the fast food place for too-hot coffee was ridiculous too, but when I actually saw the photos from the case showing the extent of her burns, it suddenly became a lot less ridiculous in my mind.  

    And I do get that sometimes sh*t happens, but somebody's still got to be responsible for paying for it.  EMS workers' lives have value too, and frankly, if EMS shows up to a call they think is going to be a basic heart attack and it turns out to be a crazy guy going nuts on bath salts and he eats the EMS worker's face off, and later they find out the caller knew all along what was happening and failed to mention it because he didn't want himself or his family member to face drug charges or something?  Well, then I say...  Give that lawsuit its day in court.

    And again, not saying that is what happened, but I can at least envision a situation in which this would be a legit case.
