Mexican Court System and Lawsuits

Although it is true that lawsuits are not common in Mexico, and thank god for that, you can file a lawsuit for any "frivolous" thing you want and for any amount. I'm not sure where people get the idea that here you are on your own. A Mexican court and judge will hear any trial put before them.

Mexicans have been suing each other since the revolution. In fact, I am getting ready to sue my insurance company if they deny my flood claim. How about them apples?

So many rumors are spread with very little fact. Even those who are well-traveled or live in Mexico are sometimes the farthest from reality as they stick to what they know; hanging around with their own kind, living in American compounds, American associations, etc. I'm not saying that's a bad thing but it doesn't really give you a good feel for another country when you live like that. Just listen to those who have lived overseas working for a U.S. company or the government, their comments are far from factual.

Also, Baja is representative of the whole republic. Remember that the population of all of the Baja Sur is only 551,000 versus a total population of 103,000,000.
