    Naaahhhh; Paperwork for competitors to wade through!
    Maybe they could sub-contract ‘legal talent’ to other shops, as workload permits.

    So that’s what happens behind the scenes at Dilbert’s company…

    Whirlpool used to sell propane refrigerators in Europe, but didn’t dare do it in the US, because they had a tendency to explode. The cost in law suits was acceptable in Europe, but in the US, with their fancy pants lawyers, made the lives of Americans worth too much to be acceptable losses…Take pride, folks, your life is worth more than a Frenchman’s….

    We used to have a kerosine powered ’fridge in Australia. No problems.

    Nearly every RV in this country has a propane powered fridge.

    Ah, Standard Right Wing Talking Point #7… I was wondering when it would show up.
    If you look closely at your ladder, you’ll find the warning is not on the top rung; it’s on the second rung down, and it says “don’t stand above this step—you could lose your balance.” Which is true. A stepladder is a precarious perch, and when you’re working up that high you can’t steady yourself with your hands; you’ve got to sort of press your knee against the top rung. So there is a common-sense reason for the warning. And if the lawyers/government/etc were really that serious about keeping you from doing this, they’d remove the top rung or tilt it so you couldn’t stand on it. The label is a piece of information, that’s all… and you’re free to ignore it.
    As for the legendary “hot coffee” story, look it up on Snopes. The coffee in question was almost at the boiling point, well above the restaurant industry’s standards for coffee temperature (because the restaurant in question was using scalding water to extract a wee bit of flavor from the cheap beans they were using), and the customer suffered extensive burns. The company was negligent and deserved to pay… and interestingly, the large suit only came after they refused to pay the customer’s medical bills, which were pretty small compared to the eventual award. They could have avoided the whole business by accepting a little responsibility for their actions.

    Fun fact: most of the work done by corporate lawyers is the mundane work of writing and reviewing contracts. When there are lawsuits, the most frequent are one company suing another, followed by a company suing an individual. It’s actually pretty uncommon for a corporate lawyer to be defending a negligence suit; that’s why they’re news.

    Yep, and according to my friends who live in an RV about five months out of the year, one of the most common causes of RV fires is the propane fridge. Guy says he has seen an RV burn to the chassis in a few minutes when the fridge caught fire. That’s why he popped the extra money to get a huge battery pack and an electric fridge.

    Plus think of the other suing possibilities.
