Are we too litigious?

Illinois Hospital Faces Lawsuit After Switching Babies
Why, yes. Yes, we are. I would think the parents would be happy that the situation was resolved as quickly as it was, and that they’d be simply relieved to have their correct children back.
Why does this require a lawsuit? What damages are there? How do you put a price on a little bit of suffering?
Come on, people. They took care of the problem the very same day. Take a deep breath and take a chill pill. No lawsuit is needed, and neither family suffered $50K worth of pain and suffering, regardless of what their opportunistic lawyer says.
Oh — and what’s his fee for this? I doubt he’s taking the case pro bono.
