I think it's tragic.
I'm not particularly fond of body piercings myself, but one should be able to have it done without paying for it with their life or their health. The girl ought to sue the pants off the person who did the piercing, if she ever recovers.
Yes, it's tragic and I feel bad for this young girl. However, she is an adult. She knew she has diabetes and the ramifications of it. But a lawsuit? I think not! She needs to take responsibility for her own actions. When we choose to do these things, we choose to take chances.
My middle daughter had her belly button pierced as soon as she turned 18. This was not done with my knowledge. She ended up with some nasty infections from it and finally just let it heal up. Lawsuit? NO! She was dumb enough to have holes created in a vulnerable spot, she dealt with it.
It's lawsuits like this that are doing nothing but making lawyers wallet's fat, sending malpractice insurance
through the roof, etc. etc. etc.
My personal opinion about the teenage and young adult population of today is that they're spoiled and need to learn how to deal with life. No, I've not always been popular with my kids when I made them work to pay for things like gas and car insurance when their friends were sucking it off of mom and dad but I really think my kids are learning more responsibility than their friends. People simply have to learn to take some responsibility for their actions.
