Guessing you're a bunch of white trash if you're trying to collect off of the ACCIDENTAL death of a family member?

I mean, seriously? This is the restaurants fault how?

I say sue the wife's family for not showing her how to cook a meal at home instead of going out.

What else? Sue the hostess for seating them at that table? Or did they seat themselves, then blame the husband.

Who the heck are you to call names and throw stones? You are obviously NOT "in the know" of what this family is or isn't doing. Nor do you seem to have enough intelligence to keep your uninformed, nonfactual opinions to yourself.

Learn some manners and show some restraint with your boorish assumptions that don't involve you. YOU are the epitomy of your "white trash" commentary!

Not for nothing the person to blame is the driver of the car, and the story leaves her name out of it.
Whats her name and her car insurances name, thats who is to blame.

Beverly Kasmore-Torbert is the old white lady's name that caused this accident that the media is all trying to hide.

I think the same ambulance chasing lawyer is behind this lawsuit.

http://www.abc6.com/story/17164480/fatal-acci...

The "family" is suing the VA for an accident that happened on a lift at the jello museum. Oh ya, and they're suing the museum and the manufacturer of the lift. Sound familiar?

Alright, lets look at this article:

"The family of a Dansville couple killed in a crash at a fast food restaurant in Amherst is now suing the restaurant chain.

The accident happened back in September. Joseph and Kathryn Bennett were killed while eating at the Cheeburger Cheeburger Restaurant in Amherst, New York. A car jumped a curb and crashed through the window where they were sitting. The lawsuit alleges that the restaurant did not take the proper safety precautions to protect the Bennetts from being killed.

The lawsuit was filed by the Bennett's son, Matthew, who was also injured in the crash. "

So a 13 year old on his own decided to file a lawsuit? That's bs, and everyone knows it. The restaurant didn't take proper safety precautions because the curb was too low? Does that mean if these 2 people died during a robbery at the restaurant it'd be the resteraunts fault because they didn't have armed security guards at the door? You're a money grubbing moron that's looking for a payday.

I wonder if it was nearer the end of their lunch or at the beginning??

Maybe it was the dads fault for getting 2 burgers instead of 1 ?

How do you make jokes about a 13 yr old boy and his deceased parents and sleep at night? As far as them suing - it's really nobody's business but theirs!!!

The story is a joke. It's a joke that they would sue ChesseBurger Cheeseburger. And it's the business of everyone they are suing and everyone that uses those business. If I eat ate CheeseBurger CheeseBurger, it's my business.

Well it's not a joke! Let's hope your family never is in the same situation. Are you even from Dansville? I knew Joe Bennett and I know his son Rick. These are honest, hardworking people you are talking about. Joe did alot for this community!

This kind of reminds me of the story of the woman who spilled coffee on herself at McDonalds and then sued them and won. I thought this was the most frivolous lawsuit ever and I was enraged that she won. Eventually, I read the facts of the case along with some very compelling evidence. It turns out that that particular McDonalds had rigged the coffee machine against standards so that the coffee was much hotter for much longer so that they wouldn't have to throw any out. Because of the increased temp of the coffee the woman received much more severe burns instantaneously. The burns would not have occurred at that degree of severity and would have taken more time of contact with the hot liquid to occur at all if the coffee was normal temperature. Bottom line, wait for the facts.

Are you seriously saying you find nothing wrong with them suing the burger joint?

"Under the law, money is the only thing you can go for in these types of cases, and clearly they're looking for the deeper pocket," said legal analyst Steve Boyd of O'Brien Boyd P.C.

It's all about the money. Don't let anyone fool you into believing otherwise.(Unless of course they are suing for $1, which I'm sure they're not)
