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.

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.
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.

if_i_really_have_to: 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?
