#13: I’ll Take This to Court!
Americans love to threaten others with lawsuits or to call their lawyers whenever they’re feeling emotional. Sometimes people mean that threat, while most people just use it to express how angry they are with a situation. Why the overuse of lawyers, though? And are Americans statistically more lawyer happy than other countries?
We’re not sure of the answer on this one, but one reason why Americans lean on lawyers so much is because of the legal system. Either there are set laws in place that can work in one’s favor, or there are major loopholes in the legal system that Americans attempt to expose in exchange for lots of cash.
