Given that list of injuries, I'd have to seriously question his claim that he was
$1:
“in the normal course of using” the facilities
. Seriously - how can you hurt yourself that badly from the sitting position?

$1:
Denes claims the toilet seat broke, which caused him to fall into the toilet and then onto the floor.

Sorry dude. I've lived in a house full of guys, and the seat has been left up more than once. Once you're in, there's no chance of "falling out". :lol:

We really need to enact a "common sense" law in this country.

Basically, if it can be reasonably expected that you as a human being can prevent your own injuries, despite conditions as established by others, then you are ultimately responsible for your injuries, not the person who established said conditions.

In this case, it's buddies fault he is so badly hurt, not the folks at timmies. For the guy in Calgary who was robbed by a man who injured himself in the process of the robbery, then successfully sued, that wouldn't have happened. For dumb asses who come 200 feet onto my property drunk at 2am, and fall into a 6 foot deep hole breaking their arm, they can't sue me, etc. etc. etc.

"fall into the toilet and then onto the floor."
Damn shifting gravity!!! Its bad enough he fell into the toilet, but for the fall to then cause him to go UP and then FORWARD..well thats just not acceptable.

I agree with the commom sense law.. I also believe we should have myth-buster like scientists to run a small experiment to see if things like this are even remotely possible. It would be a short, entertaining day in court, for the jury to watch "buster" NOT sustain injuries falling through a toilet seat

also...shouldnt he sue the toilet seat company??

also, insert a pun about double-doubling over in pain

Fuck off with your useless and retarded lawsuits! Stop turning our entire legal sect into a bunch of frivolous lawsuits over nothing.

$1:
The city man claims the “grievous” bodily injuries he suffered include a bruised and broken right hip, bursitis in his hip, post-traumatic lumbar spinal dysfunction with aggravation of degenerative arthritis and soft tissue damage to the back.


Good Lord! He suffered all of those injuries from that short a fall?!? How old is he? 110?

Sounds like someone is looking for a free ride for awhile, sadly he will probably win his suit and we will now see warning labels on public toilets

If he wins and warning labels were put everywhere, I say we start a national campaign to write his name under the warning in all Tim Hortons. In fact, I believe the same for all warnings, :)

I want to know who was retarded enough to because some of these warnings.

Have heard of a drinking problem. And know first hand about a smoking problem. But a dumping problem? Something besides you know what? Smells rotten in Denmark. Pardon me Edmondton.

I'm having a VERY hard time believing this one. How does a person fall "up"??
Ok besides the bounce when a person falls from a few thousand feet and their 'chute don't open but, bouncing OUT of a toilet from a few inches? Ain't buyin' it.
