Rockter, in a US court you can claim almost anything and it is sadly not unusual for a civil case (non-criminal) to take years and years before it is resolved. It is also sadly normal for an insurance company, which knows they are going to pay out when they do lose, to delay the case as long as they can. That way inflation devalues the amount of the claim, too. Sometimes they get lucky, and the other party goes bankrupt or dies and the case gets dropped, too.

Unfortunately, HS is correct... and due to the way the courts are setup, the costs of defending yourself against any lawsuit is generally paid by the defendant—even if the court throws out the suit or finds it without merit.

Insurance companies are pretty bad about it...since they try to drag out payment as long as possible, as HS has pointed out.

BTW guys, you do know that the OP is over four years old and the most recent post on this thread besides your two is a year old, right??

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Good grief SD, can't you start the new year off by lightening up with your forum police tactics? The OP resurrected HIS own post. Does that constitute a breach in the forum posting etiquette - as you see it?

Ummm TB, the original post is by Bubb2, who hasn't posted in this thread since, January 6, 2007... So, exactly how did he resurrect his thread??

If bubb 2 is still around, I'd like to hear how your insurance company did in helping you out.

I realize bubb2 last posted to this thread a year ago - which he had started on Sept. of 03. I can read the dates just fine without your support thank you .

It just seems that you stand poised to attack anyone who may choose to add comments to a post over a few months old. I personally see nothing wrong with this. I do however, with no disrespect to you as a person, feel that you could lighten up a bit - as tough as this may be to compulsive, anal retentive types.

Now you did it Blue, your going to end up on that Grumpy thread if you don't watch it.

I know it tjk - and quite frankly don't care if I do - probably deserve to be.

Just got out of the Hospital last night - damn 10 mm Kidney stones really gnaw at a person's disposition.

Ouch, Ok, you get a free pass. You are entitled to be as grumpy as you want. Hope you are recovering quietly.
Did everything pass ok?

TB-

That's not a particularly good start to the new year... I hope you're feeling better... and less grumpy... BTW, I wasn't attacking anyone... just asking them if they were aware of the dates..
