I was just reading in one of my magazines that Daimler Chrysler will contest a 20 million dollar lawsuit judgement against them awarded by a jury in New Jersey. Chrysler was found to be negligent in the death of Annette Boryszewski, who was killed when the wheel and tire assembly from (ANOTHER) vehicle came loose on the highway and struck her minivan, crushing the roof above the driver's seat. The other vehicle's tires were rotated one week earlier at a local gas station and police determined human error had caused the lug nuts to fall off. Isn't this like saying...if I were to go to a highway overpass and drop large rocks or other heavy objects onto the vehicles below causing their roofs to cave in or some other damage that resulted in a fatality that the victims car manufactuers would be to blame for my actions? Chrysler was the remaining defendant at trial after the driver of the other vehicle, the gas station owners, and Exxon Mobil all settled out of court. As this article I'm reading says: "this is the latest example of how the American legal system lets trial lawyers base liability on depth of corporation's pockets rather than the true degree of responsibility." I can think of other cases that equally as stupid, take the hot coffee lawsuit, or better yet I've even heard of cases where burglers have sued the home owners because they hurt themselves while robbing their home and felt the home owners were responsible for damages. And worse yet...some have even won these lawsuits. When is enough enough? I don't see anything getting better in years to come. What are your thoughts on lawsuits such as this? I'm sorry the lady died, but I call what happened to her a freak accident it wasn't Chryslers fault. Blame the idjits that didn't put the other vehicles tire on properly.
