Be stupid, make money

This is going to hurt the ol' profit sharing (Fireman's Fund is a sister company of ours)

Prankster dentist wins tusk case - Peculiar Postings -


Dental assistant goes under for a procedure. While under, dentist puts some boar's tusks in her mouth and snaps some pictures. He takes them out but the tusks make their way around the office.

Dental assistant quits and sues dentist. Fireman's Fund refuses to cover his claim (apparently, for some stupid reason, they don't think practical jokes are part of running a dental practice ). Dentist settles out of court for $250k with his ex-assistant and then sues Fireman's Fund. Jury sides with said dentist, supreme court upholds the ruling stating:

Supreme Court Justice Mary Fairhurst wrote that Woo’s practical joke was an integral, if odd, part of the assistant’s dental surgery and “conceivably” should trigger the professional liability coverage of his policy.
I've got some integral, if odd, corrective program lined up too.

One MILLLLLION dollars.

Now he can go get some frickin sharks with frickin laser beams on their heads.

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

Don't you wish that poor dental assistant could FIRE so she never has to work for another idiot again?

There was a movie where a doctor and patient colluded to win a suite for $15M. This sounds like it in real life.

I had 2 dental implants installed in April. The crowns will be installed in a few more months. The cost is very high and dental insurance covers nothing.

I wish that oral surgeon did my implants. Rather than costing a bunch, I could have made $. Actually, I might have even settled for the boars teeth; at least until the first settlement check came in.
Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. That's my story and I am sticking to it.
