Quoted from yzfguy:
Give me a break. The world as a whole is full of litigious people. So by this post, I suppose we can assume that your country is full of judgemental people? Give it a rest with the mudslinging.
It’s almost like your offended by the truth. America is not the most litigious country, but it’s in the top 5. So ya, there are a lot of law suits in the USA compared to other places.
“There is a common misconception that the U.S. is the most litigious nation in the World. This is simply untrue. While it’s true that the U.S. has a large number of lawsuits crowding its courts each year, it barely cracks the Top 5 of most litigious countries in the world. In his book, “Exploring Global Landscapes of Litigation,” Christian Wollschlager notes that the litigation rates per 1,000 people shows that European nations top the list of the world’s most litigious countries. Here is a list of the top 5 most litigious countries by capita: 1. Germany: 123.2/1,000 2. Sweden: 111.2/1,000 3. Israel: 96.8/1,000 4. Austria: 95.9/1,000 5. U.S.: 74.5/1,000. The Top 10 also includes the UK (64.4); Denmark (62.5); Hungary (52.4); Portugal (40.7); and France (40.3).”
