Sue Larry King at Your Own Peril

9/20/2009 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Larry KingLarry King -- or more specifically his wife Shawn -- doesn't take too kindly to people they feel file frivolous lawsuits against them.

King's company, Larry King Enterprises, and his driver are being sued over a fender bender that went down back in November 2008. The two plaintiffs claim they suffered serious injuries and are suing for damages in excess of $50,000.

But that's not the way the Kings see things.

Shawn tells us, "This is a completely frivolous and fraudulent lawsuit. There was zero damage to both cars. Our driver has an excellent record and is extremely responsible. At the time of the incident, the people got out of the car, said they were completely fine."

She continued, "Our driver checked to see if they were okay. We have witnesses who will confirm that. They exchanged insurance information, and as soon as they saw Larry King Enterprises, they decided to go for what they assumed are deep pockets. These people went to an ambulance chaser for an attorney, and as though they were filling out a form to get the maximum amount of money they could, checked off every box possible . In return, they will be on the receiving end of a big, fat lawsuit."

If no one chickens out, both sides are due in court in December.

Peril, not Perile. It would be puerile to spell it perile.

Good for them. I was once sued for $100,000 for emotional aguish & physical distress during a fender bender that caused no damage. I was a 22 year old student, but my mom (a single-parent nurse) happened to have saved for a mercedes & when they saw that listed on my insurance, they decided to sue for more money. I was pissed off to no end. Talk about abusing a system.

Thank God they lost the suit. More people ought to learn this lesson.

HILARIOUS that OBAMA, and the Liberal Extremist/Dems, have for DECADES NOW been the greatest recepients of donations from Lawyers/Lawfirms by a margin of 1,635-1!
Obama and Biden...both Lawyers.
HILARIOUS that Larry King, who works for one of the most LIBERAL EXTREMIST NEWS CHANNELS (except Lou Dobbs), is getting a TASTE of what it is like to "deal with" Obama supporters!
HILARIOUS
