... but i am super eager to start focusing on the spring 6Pac!!!
It might be more likely that they would consider charging variable prices depending on factors, like smoking, that are elective and may increase healthcare costs. So... provide evidence of immunizations or get a surcharge tacked onto your family premium.Sure. I liken it to building your house on a flood plain. You can do that, but homeowners insurance doesn't typically cover floods in flood plains -- that's extra.
I've not personally heard of anyone being sued from one family to another, I've just always wondered if it has happened and if it might open up the debate more between the rabid anti-vaccine group vs those on the edge who just need a lot more information and reassurance, including the realizataion that their unvaccinated child may cause another to die or that the illnesses are real and could cause their own child to die.Sorry to both of you, Tully and SuziQz, I guess my non-legal brain didn't state my thinking correctly. SuziQz, I doubt too many attorneys would take on a case of one family directly filing suit against another (unless there were clear intent to cause harm, and a large pocket to dive into, maybe.) I have, however, known of cases where one insurance company (as I said, in the case of auto insurance) sued the family/insurance of another, when severe harm was done. I assumed it was to recoup the loss. I have also testified in a case, some years ago, where a nineteen year old was driving a car in negligent fashion with a sixteen year old neighbor as a passenger. Both girls were injured (I saw them in ER that night), and the family of the sixteen year old did file suit against the much more "prominent" (ie. appeared to have a lot of money) family of the nineteen year old. I testified in a deposition, but never did try to find out the result. It happens. SuziQz, that case was represented by a local personal injury attorney who basically took on every case, still does, and I guess he wins something in enough of them to make it worthwhile. K
