Personal Injury Case


Farmer Joe decided his injuries from the accident were serious enough to
take the trucking company (responsible for the accident) to court. In court
the trucking company's fancy lawyer was questioning farmer Joe.

"Didn't you say, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine,'" said the lawyer.

Fam?er Joe responded, "Well I'II tell you what happened. I had just loaded
my favorite mule Bessie into the.......

"I didn't ask for any details," the lawyer interrupted, "just answer the
question." "Did you not say, at the scene of the accident,'l'm fine!'"

Farmer Joe said, "Well I had just got Bessie into the trailer and I was
driving down the road...

The lawyer interrupted again and said, "Judge, I am trying to establish the
fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the Highway
Patrolman on the scene that he was just fine. Now several weeks after the
accident he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please
tell him to simply answer the question.

By this time the Judge was fairly interested in Farmer Joe's answer and
said to the lawyer, "I'd like to hear what he has to say about his favorite
mule Bessie.

Joe thanked the Judge and proceeded, "Well as I was saying, I had just
loaded Bessie, my favorite mule, into the trailer and was driving her down
the highway when this huge semi-truck and trailer ran the stop sign and
smacked my truck right in the side.

I was thrown into one ditch and Bessie was thrown into the other. I was
hurting real bad and didn't want to move.  However, I could hear ole Bessie
moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape just by her groans.

Shortly after the accident a Highway Patrolman came on the scene.

He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he went over to her. After he
looked at her then he took out his gun and shot her between the eyes.

Then the Patrolman came across the road with his gun in his hand and looked
at me.

He said, "Your mule was in such bad shape I had to shoot her.

How are you feeling?'"
