I just curious if the Jennifer Holmes quoted about having to take time off to care for herchildren, was her husband working opposite shifts to care for the kids, or is she going for early retirement?

to satisfy people. $400,000 isn't enough. Yeah, yeah, it's a tragedy. But, really, $400 thousand isn't enough? If they want more, then I'd say they lobby the house and senate to take it from the $6.6 billion transportation bill, since the only reason it passed was because of the bridge collapse. If not, there would have been no the six republicans would have voted for it...at least that's what a few of them have said.

This why a cap was installed in the first place. Compensation can get out of hand. Have to agree with T-Paw on this one...

If there are long term medical bills not covered by insurance, try to find a way to help those people. Any settlement outside of present limitations will open the door to future claims once this precedent is set. There are all sorts of personal injury bloodsuckers such as Cerisi who have become rich off the suffering of others, and for that reason we must tread carefully here.
