And if your "pain and suffering" was losing your balls, or having your penis so damaged that you could never have proper sex again, wouldn`t you sue?
We don`t know if that`s what has happened in this case, but it`s a possibility that you should keep in mind.
Can I have money now?
That might be along the lines of what`s happened here.
Same here. NHS in the UK. Doesn`t universal healthcare rock? :)
Hope you get it one day, America.
As for the $1,000,000 for pain and suffering, The verdict said the million was for "pain and suffering"...it didn`t say it was just for his pain and suffering while he was in the hospital, does it? Do we know what long-term damage was done? No, we don`t. It`s possible that his genitalia are permanently reduced in functionality or disfigured due to this, and the "pain and suffering" being compensated here is for his current and future loss.
And if that is true (and we`re never going to know; they`re not exactly going to release such sensitive and embarrassing information to the media), don`t you think that permanent partial or full destruction of a 19 year old`s sexual ability, or mutilation of his genitalia, due to negligence of trained employees, would be worth $1 million?
But its free? I make more than free a year. Good ol Canada.
I suspect there`s more to this story, than what they`re reporting. I`ve been to many batting cages, and never been asked to clean up after myself.
yeah if you live in the states...good ol` healthcare here :)
I got hit by a ball at a batting cage once. The ball somehow was chucked out of the pitching machine, fit through a small hole in a fence, smacked into a wall, and hit me in the face as I was walking away. The first thing I thought, however, was "OUCH! That hurt like a mother-drater!"... not so much "I`m going to own this joint tomorrow."
Haha, I like that.
It`s a shame what happened to him, but he doesn`t deserve that much money. Accidents happen. "i guess you didnt see the link about the girl whos vagina got shredded by a water fountain and she got alot of money :D

Haha yeah and, bye soaper.
I think to truly be able to tell what should have/could have happened we need a little more information. Until then I`ll stick to my guns and you stick to yours.
And Soaper, no "First"ing allowed on IAB. A good way to get permabanned.
And bye-bye soaperguy29.
