Just a thought.....
In this sue happy world we live in, there is always a possibility that someone could get hurt, cut, scraped, food poisined, etc. while dumpster diving and then turn around and sue the company who owns the dumpster.
Remember the woman that sued and WON her case because she was uncoordinated enough to spill HER coffee in her lap after driving off from a fast food drive through?
There was a news report the other day...I forget what city...but a couple actually were stupid enough to get INTO a dumpster to sleep the night. Before they woke up, the truck made a pick up and dumped them into the crusher.....the man managed to get out but the woman was killed. Imagine the legal ramifications there.
I raised horses for years. My neighbors kids were constantly sneaking into the pasture to mess with them. I was told by the local policemen that IF one of them should get kicked or hurt, I would be RESPONSIBLE for the damage to them on my OWN property that was fenced off!
Many people have become so self centered that they will try anything to gain a buck without effort, even to the point of suing for their OWN stupidity......so establishments and property owners have become increasingly wary just to protect themselves. Even if someone is sued and wins there are still court costs and time involved......not to mention having to live with ones self knowing that another human being was hurt on your property.
