    Junk Lawsuit against a Yacht Club!

    Man Sues Yacht Club Over Burned Feet

    posted: 3/8/2013









    By: Associated Press
    DANVERS, Mass. (AP) -- A Rowley man who said he burned the soles of his feet while walking barefoot on a metal ramp at a Danvers marina has filed a lawsuit, saying the facility’s owners should have warned him the ramp was hot.

    Norman Pelletier claimed in his suit that he suffered second-degree burns after walking on the ramp at Danversport Yacht Club in June. His lawyer claims Pelletier required medical attention.

    The lawsuit, filed in Salem Superior Court, seeks at least $15,000 in damages.

    Pelletier’s lawyer alleges the yacht club’s management was negligent because it didn't warn visitors the ramp might be hot, and it failed to provide a “reasonably safe” environment. He said the ramp temperature reaches up to 120 degrees, in the sun.

    Marina officials say they have never had any complaints about the ramp.

    Just how much beer or pot must for have in you before you realize your feet are burning... For a second degree burn on both feet he had to stand there and ignore the first degree.... What a dumb ass....I wanna be the judge to hear this case

    Problem is, he will probably win, the attorney will get 50-60%, and the insurance premium for the marina will go up, along with every other rate for marina's since they will now have to post signs "In the blazing hot sun, this metal --ramp, pole, support, etc. could get hot. You don't need common sense anymore, just an attorney willing to show the court how stupid you are.

    If he's suing for burnt feet , I should be suing the bug-bomb people and win millions.

    There was no warning label on the can saying...... DON'T use this on a boat or you could die.

    A law suit over a hot walk way? How about suing flip flops how many people fell when wearing them. I can tell of one fall where my wife was wearing a pair of flip flops slipped and fell on a wet diamond plate ramp in a marina hurting her knee. When she came back to the boat Seeing she had hurt her knee I asked why she didn't have your boat shoes on. A friend was crossing my swim platform with flip flops slipped and almost went in the water. He stopped wearing them. A girl on a boat next to me slid across the swim platform with a pair of flip flops on and went into the water.

    Anyone else have flip flop stories?

    I just came back from a walk, it's 31deg. and I was barefoot. My feet are cold...I'm suing the company that poured the concrete sidewalk! Why didn't I think of this before?
