Socialized Medicine Strikes Again

When the government provides health care and messes you up bad, the only place you have to go for justice is a government judge. In Germany, a man lost the top of his head due to bungling on the part of the government health care system. It was placed in a cooler that did not keep it cool enough, and so the doctors decided to replace it with plastic!

The man sued. He only asked for about $30,000. He said the plastic was not as good an insulator, gave him headaches, and made him sensitive to the weather. The judge decided that that was too much and that the plastic skull "was better than the original". Right. The man was awarded about $4,000. Would that be enough for you if it happened to you?
