How to get sued for $1.5 million for personal injury while taking a shower. [View all]

I'm not kidding. Someone I know just called me for legal advice.

Last October, she was home, taking a shower. FedEx came to make a delivery. The housekeeper opened the front door. FedEx Guy is afraid of dogs and ran away. The dog is a big Newfoundland who's 8+ years and thought FedEx Guy was playing and ran after him. FedEx Guy fell forward on the lawn and claimed he was injured and called the ambulance.

My friend spoke with the FedEx Driver who claimed that FedEx Guy was her friend who was an "apprentice driver". Driver told my friend she wasn't aware of any injury to the apprentice.

My friend called FedEx several times and received no return call.

This week she received a summons and complaint for personal injury for $1.5 million. FedEx Guy claims the dog bit his penis. You read that correctly. How about a zipper burn as dogs in my experience go for dangling extremities like arms and legs.

That's bad enough. But my friend's homeowner's insurance won't litigate. It wants to settle and make the guy go away. This situation can be addressed via frivolous lawsuit or motion for dismissal. First, the ambulance report shows no injury to the body. Next, the driver finally admitted that this guy didn't work for FedEx. He was her friend and was unemployed. She let him dress up in a FedEx uniform and give people packages to give him a boost. So an imposter/fraud was making deliveries under the guise of a major corporation. That also means that this was a trespasser who assumed the risk of injury coming on her property.

My friend is besides herself that her insurance company not only will reward this guy with some compensation, but also her premiums will go up.
