If you discover that a car has gone off the road into the water, before giving in to the natural urge to rescue those inside, check the bumper for Obama or Coexist stickers. Moonbats do love their lawsuits (as evidenced by the cozy relationship between trial lawyers and the Democrat Party), and you wouldn’t want to end up on the wrong end of a legal looting. Here’s what the entitlement mentality and jackpot justice have reduced some people to:
A Colorado man, despite acknowledging that he’s lucky to be alive after being trapped in a submerged car, has filed an intent to sue his rescuers for half a million dollars.
Roy Ortiz filed his intent to sue the county of Boulder and his rescuers for a tentative $500,000 as a “preservative” measure, his attorney, Ed Ferszt, told ABCNews.com.
Ferszt said the county should have closed the road during floods in September. He said the first responders were also included because they did not realize Ortiz was trapped in the car until they prepared to lift it out of the water.
“He was not seen or it was assumed no one could have survived it,” Ferszt said. “No one discerned he was there.”
Ortiz feels entitled to the money of his rescuers not only because of his medical bills and vague “shoulder issues,” but also because he has trouble sleeping and even has bad dreams about being cold.
Next time relief workers will be tempted to take a smoke break before pulling the car out, just to be sure nobody survives to sue them.
