The courts are sometimes used as a Lotto. Also, many organizations/people will settle. That there are so many lawyers means there is going to be lots of legal actions. Same thing as having full-time law-makers. What a ridiculous notion, that we need people, full time, to be making more laws. And we are trained to call them "leaders' when they are no such thing.

People go to McDonalds because IT IS THERE. Even though it's pure poison, there it is, all red and yellow and OPEN with a line of cars. So they go in.

WMRRA wasn't even given a chance to go to court before a payment was made through arbitration and they got fucked out of insurance. Fortunately, the owner of Keigwins won't make that mistake and he's intent on taking this to court to make sure Kim gets nothing but lawyer bills out of this whole charade.
What about his gross negligence of riding over Your head why doesnt the orginazation sue him right back?

Everyone can sue anyone for any reason. It might be tossed out, but you can file a lawsuit against a car dealer in Little Rock, Arkansas
whether you bought a car from them or not. Lawsuits just have to be filed in the jurisdiction of the 'defendant' to be accepted.

That's why liability disclaimers (discussed earlier) are of use in the courtroom / negotiations, but do not prevent a lawsuit from being initiated.
My understanding ...

After a few Minutes research it appears hes also a liar as in the forbes auto articles it states he crashed avoiding another vehicle... anybody see the vehicle hes avoiding
Cause i just see him run wide and target Fixate and crash all by his lonesome. And i would guess it wasnt the sand bags that did the damage as stated in the article but his own bike running him over that did the damage.

I'm just glad that he's determined to fight this all the way through.

When I spoke to Dziadzia, he adamantly told me he was determined to have his day in court.

“They tried to settle with me for a couple of million,” Szymon said. “But I said, ‘No way!’ I could close my business tomorrow, it wouldn’t cost me a dollar, and I could re-open the next day, but some other guy, like Kim, would sue me. And eventually insurance companies would say ‘Fuck these guys. We’re not going to insure any track days, any racing.’ I’m not fighting for Keigwin’s, I’m not fighting for myself; I’m fighting for everybody, because tomorrow you can sue Zoom Zoom, you can sue PTT, you can sue Pridmore, California Superbike... If we lose, it will open the door for all these scumbags to blame everybody for their crash, except themselves.”

Hmmmmm. How about suing phone manufacturers for a Texting accident even if you are at fault? I have not heard about anyone doing that but I am sure it has been done. After all, they allow the phone to be used while driving...

Based on that PR pic of bad-boy-poser Kim with his toy . . . he looks like EXACTLY the kind of asshole who'd pull a stunt like this.

Second Cali lawsuit by Mariusz Dziurzynski, is more recent and yet to be litigated.
I hope Mr. Kim's court actions bite hard against him.
Seems shallow, he'd blame others for his personal clueless mistake, all created by none other than himself.
I don't think Lawson or Schwantz sued Assen in 93 when they came together and landed in a ditch in the run off area.
Probably looking for seed money for his DOA start up car company.

When I used to skydive not only did they make you fill out a bunch of forms holding them harmless when you first signed up with them, but every time you jumped you were given a single page version, on orange paper with danger bars all around the borders, with about eight short paras all of which obliged you to acknowledge the various forms of injury you were willingly going to undertake including death, permanent disability, etc. and you had to initial each line as well as sign at the bottom.

One day they'll probably have to sit you in front of a camera holding that day's newspaper and reciting "I recognize and accept that what I'm about to do will probably kill me and I do so knowing that when, not if, that happens it's nobody's fault but my own, and I freely choose to die horribly in agony, right now, because I want to, yes yes please give me a hideous lingering death and or appalling untreatable injuries it's what I came for."

And they'll bump their head that day and sue anyway.

Sadly Mr. Kim did not have to take an ethics class to complete his physics and biology degree at Reed.

In light of all this, the picture is a bit ironic to me...

He does mention the crash on his Lit Motors site as:
While riding his Ducati Motorcycle at Laguna Seca Raceway, Danny was involved in a near death accident caused by misplaced sandbags in the runoff area. He sustained severe fractures, requiring a hip replacement and confining him to a Wheelchair for 6 months.

I assume he goes to track days because it is something he enjoys doing. Then why punish the activity that you enjoy so that it is harder to do next time (being more expensive, more hoops to jump through, etc.)?

Also, does he not realize that he is going to be hated amongst his riding peers? He has got to be alone on this lawsuit.

"caused by misplaced sandbags in the runoff area."

And all this time I thought he caused the accident by him failing to control his bike. I guess it was all the fault of the sandbag. If only there was a way to know where you are supposed to be riding..I don't know, maybe if they paved the riding area or something

Yeah that “car” thing he is working on is clearly suffering from a lack of proper funding. I’d love to see that business plan though, funding plan A: “frivolous lawsuit based on lack of riding ability, stupidity, greed, and a complete lack of self respect”.

Danny has recovered from his motorcycle accident, with a reignited passion to develop a safe AEV and make dangerous two wheelers a thing of the past. Together, the team begins working on their next advanced prototype, taking the next step towards production.Online Drugstore,cialis online with mastercard ,Free shipping,womens viagra online,Discount 10%

That is from his website, including the odd drug references at the end (SEO?). Apparently the motorcycle was dangerous. It is good to hear it was not the rider riding above his ability that caused the crash.
