Get real! This is a perfect example of why our country is such a mess. Each of us, individually, are responsible for our own actions. If we do something we know we shouldn't or isn't the best possible way to do it, we alone are responsible for when things go wrong.
If we knowingly drive a car with mechanical issues, it is no one's fault but our own. If we use a saw or any kind of a machine, we know the risks going in. There is always the possibility of injury with these types of machines.
The real crime here is the lawyer and his client who started the suit. The court that allowed it to get to verdit. And the jury who awarded it. I'm betting each person on that jury was thinking "well, if we give him a big payout for being stupid, then when I do something stupid I can sue and get's lots of money, too.
Responsibility and accountablilty are two of the most important things we have as a society. Sadly, they are all but dead. Every person in this mockery of justice needs to be held responsible and accountable for their actions. Stop making the rest of us pay for someone else's stupid mistakes!
Too be we can't do a "citizen's appeal" and get stuff like this overturned. Maybe disbar a few lawyers while we are at it.
