Re: Inertia switch shut off engine whilst trying to escape from car hijack - got shot, now paralyzed
This is sad... and there's no salving the grief. But why dont you try suing
the killers themselves?
Suppose that your friend had been walking by an alley and gunmen forced him
into that alley, and your friend tried to escape ... but blocked from
getting to a street, he tried door after door only to find them all locked
as a precaution against burglary.
Would you then find an attorney who would try to sue the building occupants
for having doors locked?
Note that the inertia switch has saved many more lives from collision fires
than it has cost.
If you do find an attorney who will take this case, BEWARE, he's really
after YOUR money, or notoriety, and likely YOUR interests come second or
Not to mention your friend violated the first rule of robbery victim: GIVE
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - - - - -
What's even sadder is the concept that has been fostered in the new society,
that when bad things happen, someone should be liable and sued.
Heard an example the other day... lawyer advice talk-show. elderly lady
wants to sue store because after her hubby parked in handicap slot, she got
out, lost her balance a little and tripped over the wheel-stop curb.
She said... if it's a handicap spot, there shouldnt be a curb to trip over.
Lawyer, while being nice, implied she was an idiot and voiced same as I
write above. But he didnt point out the obvious cases of 'seasoned citizens
running their cars INTO stores!
I wanted to phone lawyer and ask him to blame the responsible parties for
this... his own brethren in the bar.
