Wait, or is there only slight weakness if he didn't get the surgery?

MayoSlather: As much as it pains me to defend Walmart, I tend to think a lot of negligence cases need to be thrown out under a clause that shiat happens. There are obviously cases where a company is clearly negligent, but slipping on a sign on the floor seems a whole lot more like shiat happening.


The jury found Wal-Mart 90% responsible, so the justice system already accepts the idea of partial responsibility.  What we need, perhaps, is a system where the jury could say, for example, that Wal-Mart was 40% responsible, the guy was 30% responsible, and the remaining 30% goes to "shiat happening."

I had that after one year of running a hand crane, overhead hoist all night thirsd shift in a textile mill.
Pushing carts. Yep, High impact isometrics.
Forearms were huge.
Then went to baking.
The biceps filled out kneading dough.
The forearms went down.
Now I play a mean guitar.

Gyrfalcon: Azlefty: Gyrfalcon: Why is that the fault of the store and not the doctor who did a terrible job stapling his arm back together?

It appears it is something that males are susceptible to and you do not know that until after shoulder surgery and it happens.

So my GED in law tells me that that the jury decided this because if Wally World had kept their store hazard free he would not have fallen, gotten hurt and have this condition occur because of the surgery.

Well....that still doesn't sound quite fair somehow.


Blame the jury.

He asked for less than half of that--which sounds like just about enough to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and legal fees.

The jury gave him more than twice what he asked for.

thatboyoverthere: Actually yes. Swelling in the muscles in his arm caused the doctors to have to cut the muscles open to prevent them from exploding. Now they're malformed due to the swelling.


What?  A popeye deformity is caused by a ruptured tendon no longer holding the muscle to the bone, so it bunches up.

A ruptured tendon  would not cause the doctors to have to "cut open the muscle so it doesn't explode".  Are you confusing it with compartment syndrome?

I'd wager exactly that. Popeye Deformity is a totally different issue, though he could have both- swelling from correcting the tendon rupture leading to a compartment syndrome needing decompression. From what I can see of the scar tissue, it doesn't look like the pattern I'd expect for both, but it's not a particularly clean job.
