UPDATED: Is WhoCanISue.com a Scam?
Update: Looks like WhoCanISue.com isn’t a scam… just a bad idea. See the comments below.
The link to the original post quoted doesn’t work so I can’t verify how the original author connected Jorden Burt to the website:
There seems to be quite a bit of accusations by individuals commenting to mine and others posts who have fallen prey to the misinformation by the insurance lobby and Corporate lobby. As a Personal Injury Lawyer, I often cringe at accusations such as ambulance chaser et al and wonder just how misinformed these individuals are. Then today I read Angus Hinson blog entitled “Who Can I Sue?...Reflects Poorly on You” which reinforced my belief that this is purposefully driven device by the insurance and corporate lobbies to purposefully mislead and straight out lie to the public about our profession.
Angus article points out that the homepage of the whocanisue.com has a picture of a businessman slipping on a banana peel. Luckily Angus investigated who was responsible for this reprehensible website and found that it was Jorden Burt, "A Financial Services and Insurance Law Firm"...condemning "unnecessary and frivolous lawsuits." Although I share my disgust with Angus at the site, I am not surprised at who is responsible for it.
So why would an insurance puppet put up such a site. I think its quite simple, its election time and a good time to get headlines for those dishonest politicians seeking so called draconian tort reform.
Any TD readers have more info?
