Should You Sue?

Attorneys ask the following questions to determine if people with grievances have a solid basis for a lawsuit. If you have experienced an accident, been injured or were the victim of some catastrophe and you are thinking of suing, take the following test.

Here's how it works.

Read the statement and then decide if you Agree or Disagree with the True or False (T or F) conclusion shown.

For example. The first statement says: True (T) -- There seems to be a lump in my throat much of the time.

If you Agree the statement is True, give yourself one point. If you Disagree that the statement is True, give yourself no points.

Add up your Agree responses. One point for each Agree. No points for Disagree.

Your total shows whether you should sue.

Do you Agree or Disagree:

T -- There seems to be a lump in my throat much of the time.

F -- My sex life is satisfactory.

T -- I am troubled by attacks of nausea and vomiting.

T -- I am bothered by an upset stomach several times a week.
