The Myth Of A Litigious Society

"Why do Americans seem to sue at the slightest provocation?" the University of Chicago Press blog asks. "The answer may surprise you: we don't!

"For every 'Whiplash Charlie' who sees a car accident as a chance to make millions, for every McDonald's customer to pursue a claim over a too-hot cup of coffee, many more Americans suffer injuries but make no claims against those responsible or their insurance companies.

"The question is not why Americans sue but why we don't sue more often, and the answer can be found in how we think about injury and personal responsibility."
