    Is it not common sense to not walk on a highway?

    Utterly pathetic...

    The entire case, the woman, and the lawyer who took it.

    This is another prime example of many of the things wrong in American society. The best result will be for the case to the thrown out, the lawyer chastised in open court, and the woman fined court costs.

      I agree, some of the cases lawyers take on are ridicules.

      It's a shame her health insurance carrier, if she has one, can't go after her for some of her medical expenses for being so negligent.

    Remember, only the lawyers get rich off these cases. . . .
