Humid Out? No, Just Lots of Lawyers Drooling

So, a storm drain cover goes through someone’s windshield with spectacular effect, and spectacular photos.  The result is a day-long traffic jam with 4-hour delays on Route 128.  The good news is that the guy lived through it.

Then you read this:

Other motorists have complained in recent days to MassHighway about loose storm grates in that section of Route 128, which is under construction.

“It’s not the first one that’s popped off,” said Lieutenant Eric Anderson, a State Police spokesman.

And suddenly Boston gets damp with lawyer drool.  Who wouldn’t want that case?  Invite a camera crew into the hospital, let the issue fester a while, have a few press conferences, and collect yourself a 7-digit cut of the settlement.
