I hope she makes a full recovery. NOTE TO THE EDITOR: This site takes way to long to load. It over uses my processors. It only happens here, and I have a nice gaming computer.

"Ann Arbor teen who fell 6 stories from MSU dorm window released from hospital" Hopefully through the elevator or stairs this time. But seriously, glad she's okay.

I am sure some attorneys would like to nail some liability insurer claiming the windows were improperly secured or defectively installed or constructed. However the important thing is she apparently is well enough to go home. I wish her a speedy recovery.

35 years ago she probably would have spent months in the hospital, but with the way insurance works now a days they send you home after the first signs of stability.

Is it really just "some attorneys"? What if they were actually improperly secured or defectively installed or constructed? Should that not matter?
