whippy
 n.— «The system is broken, Donelon said, adding that he sees the evidence daily in the mounting number of “whippys”—defense attorney slang for whiplash claims, so common that they are paid out at a standard rate, even though the medical experts cannot vouch that anything is really wrong.» —“Foster’s Goal Is No-Fault Insurance Detractors Say It Won’t Cut Costs” by Christopher Cooper New Orleans Times-Picayune (Lousiana) Nov. 17, 1996.
