Disneyland has taken a similar approach to lawsuits. When someone gets hurt, there is a blizzard of Disneyland officials taking all sorts of photos and notes on what happened. If the visitor decides to sue Disneyland, they are met with a high fence to climb in the legal sense because Disneyland has a reputation of fighting you tooth and nail in court. As a result there are very few lawers who will sue Disneyland on a contingency bases because 'Disneyland doesn't pay', there is no settlement ever offered, and you will have to go the whole 9 yards in court to get a judgement. Its too bad that more companies stopped rolling over and pay because it is the cheapest way out, I think the number of frivolous law suits would drop considerable if they did.
