I didn't here the town but in HLN they talked about a girl who was walking and texting, not watching where she went. She walked into an open sewer drain. The city workers had forgotten to close it. The parents are sueing the city.
The city is at fault, but since the girl wasn't watching where she was walking how much of a right does her parents have to sue? If she walked into a street and in front of a car while texting who was responsible? If she was driving and texting she would be responsible for any accident.
The city is at fault and if anybody had walked into it at night for not seeing it, or a car drove over and wrecked then they at fault.
The girl wasn't watching where she was going. She also at fault. I use to read and walk when ehr age. If I walked into a wall, or down a sewer, I would be told it was my fault for not watching where I was going.
Doesn't anybody take responsibility for their own actions anymore?
