Injured on PP - looking for legal representation - check photo evidence Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

So this morning I was going about my own business in Lima Inn when I was kicked by a Unicorn, Yes! A unicorn in the Lima Inn!

Luckily for me there's photographic evidence of this Unicorn right beside me, you can see the pained expression on my face, the pursed lips and vacant look due to shock and pain, as that clever unicorn kicked me under the cover of a table.




Luckily, even in my pain I managed to check who its owner is, so now I'm looking for someone to represent me in approaching said owner for adequate compensation.

Please reply with any suggestions, opinions and other stories or photographic evidence of similar incidents due to careless pet owners in Meridian or any other ocean.

I was also in the inn during said incident. Perhaps a class action lawsuit?

Alternatively, I can kick Eightycats in the shins for you to even the score. (he's currently in kicking range...)

The best question is, why is Eightycats an independent pirate in the Emerald Ocean?

Does he has eighty cats in-game?

He purrrs?

How do we know Winehouse was really selling that Grand Frig? Chat logs can be manipulated. This is clearly slander.

Tch! How can he have an issue with a sheep! Sheep are wonderful! That poor sheep was prolly staring because Eightycats had some chocolate in his pocket. Its a little known fact, but sheep are mad for chocolate. Oh, and toast. Can't forget the toast.

What about cat-related injuries? Particularly swarms of...25 of them? (Not 80, since there's a per-scene limit. D:)

In order to seek damages, I think you need to prove lasting harm. Was your injury a peg leg, eyepatch, or hook? From the picture, it's not clear that you have any of those.

Dear Miss Wannita,

My firm of Wryt, Grabbe and Distort, has wide experience of such legal problems, having already obtained substantial damages for pirates with animal related injuries ( tripping over lolloping rabbits, being pushed overboard by lumbering elephants, injured by roaming large felines, slipping on puppy dog mess on inadequately swabbed decks... the list grows every day ).

Having carefully examined the evidence, we are of the opinion that you most assuredly have a case against Mr Eightycats, on several concurrent grounds. First, with wanton malice aforethought, he let a PINK unicorn wander in a public place, this inevitably resulting in attracting pirates of the female persuasion to try and get closer to the aforesaid animal. Second, although the animal does indeed have a collar of sorts loosely around it's neck, there is no other form of restraint visible and the animal can be most certainly be said to be out of control. An additional observation is that said animal seems to be equipped with a very sharp horn which does not have a secure guard on it ( see Dangerous Unicorns Act of April 2012 ). Therefore, in our opinion, reached with some haste ( we are commenting within three months of the injury but we feel certain that this situation requires urgent review ), we are agreed that you should make haste forthwith to start legal proceedings.

We have seen Mr Eightycats' somewhat surprising comment that he is pretty sure that what he refers nebulously to as The Terms of Service absolve him of responsability in this matter. We would like to point out to the, admitedly very smallprint, section 167, paragraph 37, subsection IIIa of the said document which clearly state that pirates ( and we believe him to be such a person since he has been a Jobbing Pirate ) must at all time be in control of their animals and do their utmost to prevent injuries to innocent bystanders, yet Mr Eightycats is nowhere to be seen in the picture.

Should you wish to proceed with legal pursuits, we would be delighted to assist you and would suggest a minimum compensation of a pair of dragons. Our very modest fee will be one of the aforementioned dragons.

Your servant in anticipation

Dear Mr Wordetwyste

While I appreciate your research into the matter, there are two concerns I'd like to raise.

Firstly, I am not impressed with your suggestion that I was attracted to the unicorn, though I'm not entirely sure if you suggest this because the unicorn is pink or simply because it's a unicorn, I find that to be a very slanderous statement with no evidence to back it up.

Secondly, for many years now I have suffered with arsonphobia so your suggested compensation does not appeal to me in the slightest.

I am currently considering some of the other suggestions made regarding community service or having him banned from the game. Though having given all of the suggestions due consideration I am leaning towards the suggestion made by Forculus and having him kick Eightycats in the shin, afterall I am a strong believer in an eye for an eye.

Thank you for your time and interest in my case, perhaps you should contact Thalatta who has commented about some cat related injuries and may not yet have been compensated for same.

Fair winds,

Wannita

Dearest Wannita,
I have reviewed your case and believe you may have before you a case of " inability to control one's pet" and that compensation should be made immediately, however whilst in the process of sueing mr. Eightycats insuggest you also sue for being placed under mental duress, for being attacked by a unicorn is no small matter.

In regaurdes to a course of action your options are as follows:
1)attack eightycats- this may lead to your arrest but has immeadiate action
2)sue- bring eightycats before a pirate court and let your peers decide his fate
3)do nothing and plot revenge- note this is how vargas the sane become "the mad"
4)ignore the problem- nothing happens
5)raise a sheep to repel eightycats- solves future problems
6)raise a counter unicorn to attack eightycats-so he knowa your pain


I look forward to seeing your choice and wish you luck.

My dear Miss Wannita,

May I, an old lawyer, congratulate you on the generosity you are showing to Mr Eightycats in this somewhat difficult matter. That you sincerely believe that there was no malicious enticement on his part is an astonishing display of kindness in this most distressing case.

My comment about the fact that the unicorn is PINk merely reflects the wisdom of years, my dear young lady. Pink is a colour known to be fatally attractive to the most delicate souls of ladies, and thus I am still very strongly of the opinion that Mr Eightycats placed a vicious animal in a public place SPECIFICALLY to attract the sweet nature of feminine pirates, thus bringing them in close proximity to the animal and enabling said animal to injure innocent bystanders. I would not hesitate to venture that the animal may indeed have had training specifically for this purpose and I believe any fair minded judge and jury could not but agree with my premise.

I am distressed that you suffer from arsonphobia, could this be secondary to a previous injury? If so, my firm would be delighted to offer our services, we have helped many pirates who have been permanently injured by proximity to firing cannons, without the benefit of any health and safety considerations.

I would caution you, dear young lady, against taking the 'an eye for an eye' route, even if Mr Forculus did entirely off his own volition, decide to 'kick Mr Eightycats in the shin', this would be construed as an assault, and your knowledge of this may well render you to be considered 'an accessory after the fact', a position of which the law, quite rightly in our view, takes a very strong stance against. After all, if people simply went about seeking redress without the help of lawyers, where would that end, not only for members of the public, but indeed, and this is a very dark thought, for members of the Legal Profession.


I remain entirely at your disposal, my dear Miss Wannita, should you wish to take this matter further, please be assured of my readiness to assist you in your plight. The small matter of fees is but a trifle, if a dragon would not suit you, am I certain we can find something to help relieve your evident distress

I remain your potential servant
