Before we get to the excerpts, a brief disclaimer is needed (yes, even authors and citizen groups sometimes need disclaimers in our lawsuit happy society).

Whiplash! author, James Percelay, makes no apologies for the fact that the humor in his book comes shamelessly at the expense of those who have filed ridiculous lawsuits. In the interest of sparing those plaintiffs (or, as popular radio personality Paul Harvey would say, those "sewers") any further embarrassment, their names have been graciously changed.

That said, every one of these cases is absolutely true and a matter of public record. Each lawsuit that appears in Whiplash! America's Most Frivolous Lawsuits, has been included only after being meticulously researched to ensure that it actually happened the way it is reported here.
