Both of these characters seem to be terrible at their jobs, Zoidberg can't correctly identify human anatomy and Hyperchicken was once awaiting trail for incompetence. So which one is worse at their job?

Zoidberg's worse.  He's only made one accurate medical statement, and he got it from a decongestant commercial.  The hyperchicken has won two cases: DOOP v. Brannigan, and Earth v. Zoidberg.

In 'A Taste of Freedom' the Hyperchicken won against Zoidberg, so I'd say Zoidberg...

The HyperChicken is incompetant, but he has won cases before. Zoidberg knows nothing about human anatomy at all.

If Zoidberg's job was just mercy killings, then the Hyperchicken would be worse.  But seeing as it's not, and the the Hyperchicken actually wins cases every now and then...

The reason he won is cause he went for an insanity plea and Judge Whitey accecpted after Hyperchicken pointed out Bender ane Fry hired him to defend them.   laff

Although, Hyperchicken is horrible at his job, he has won some cases, so I would have to say John is worse.

Zoidberg is a terrible docter, and as it has been said the hyperchicken has won several cases. So, Zoiby is worse at his job.

Zoidberg cant be that good cause he is a doctor for a delivery company! Hyperchicken is at least a normal Lawyer not a lawyer for a company that doesnt need a lawyer!

Hyperchicken, as incompetent as he is, has had several successes while Zoidy is just plain useless. So old John would be the worst I think.

That's not all true though. The places where Fry, Leela, & Bender go always have some sort of danger. So if one of them got hurt, Zoidberg would do his part. (Even though he isn't good at it.)

I'd say the Hyperchicken because in Insane int he ainframe he said to Fry and Bender that they were crazy for hiring him.

Definitely the Hyperchicken.
As I know, you do not have to be a good lawyer to win cases. Leela won the case against Brannigan, and he defeated Bender due to the stupidity of Judge Whitey.
Zoidberg has a least shown some glipses of intelligence in the past.
What really worries me about the Hyper Chicken is thet he has actually been Attorney for Earth twice. That really does not bode well for the standard of lawyers in 3000.

The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt- Bertrand Russell

I'll second that. If lawyers in the future are all like the hyperchicken, god help us.

True.

Zoidy can do some medical miracles when he needs to.  After all, he did save Fry's life, reattach Fry's limbs (eventually in the right place),  manage to fuse together Fry and Amy and have them survive, etc.  I think it's much harder to be a good doctor than a good lawyer.

 Zoidberg isn't all useless - he's performed quite a few tasks of medical wonder, especially managing to transplant Fry's head to Amy's shoulder AND jack him up to her nervous system(he controlled the left arm). That was quite impressive...

In terms of true incompetence, I've gotta go with the HyperChicken.  In terms of being really dangerous to his patrons, it's hands-down Zoidberg.  Unless the HyperChicken were trying a capital case.

(and as for the way I spelled HyperChicken?  I just think it looks cool that way)

I think Hyperchicken is worse at his job. Zoidberg at least tries hard and sometimes gets it right.

Leela could reatach Fry's nose with her wrist thing even though she wasn't concentrating, Zoidberg's medical miracles are down to the technology of the year 3000, not any actual skill.
