every one is sue happy these days. It is the frivolous lawsuits that clog up our courts. I'm quite sick of the news outlets anouncing who is suing whom. 9 times out of 10 you wouldn't want me on the jury because 90% of all lawsuits should be tossed out.

Can't let you have the last word. Maybe 9 out of 10 are frivolous, I think that is unfortunate, but if the Lowell Sun is reporting the facts this one is not frivolous and serious long term harm by someone driving an oversized TANK agressively as the speeding warning indicates means he is at fault, as is the driver of the vehicle she was in as he got a warning for driving too close. I blame the agressive tank driver more for obvious reasons, and as luck would have it he seems to be the one with the deep pockets. See you on the jury, you bet your butt they will both pay more then if they had fairly settled this matter and done the right thing for this girl and her family.

<quoted text> Love when someone posts and proves my point. You want a tank, thats fine it's your right but you better have really good insurance when you hurt and cause permanent damage to an innocent person with that tank. I mean REALLY GOOD INSURANCE. We are talking a rear end accident and speeding in a Tank. Don't care who is driving. The fact that this rock star has money will only make settling more difficut as he can afford attorneys to fight over doing the obvious right thing, which is make restitution so this innocent person does not suffer financial burden as well as the continued physical permanent injury.
So...If you call a Hummer a Tank,what do you call an 18-wheeler moron.Those guys are 10 times more reckless and cause death and major accidents every day.All this is about is Sully Erna...period

This is just basic logic. If you rear end someone on the highway, you are almost ALWAYS at fault.
SO many people tailgate that its not even considered a crime anymore.
If you are going at a speed, ANY speed that makes it impossible for you to stop if the traffic in front of you stops, the you were going to fast and traveling to closely. There is no way around it.
The law says that you should drive at least one car length behind the car in front of you for every ten miles per hour you are traveling. It doesnt matter what you are driving. So, if the car in front of you stops dead, and you hit it, guess what, you were too close. Its the very definition of "too close". If the first car rear ended someone, they are at fault for hitting that car. If the Hummer then hits the car in front of it, then it was going too fast and was too close to stop. Its the Hummers fault. Its not up for debate, or interpretation. Its black letter law.
If you cant stop, you were too close. Period.
If you're driving down 93 tomorrow, ask yourself a question - "If the guy in front of me stops dead in his tracks, can I avoid hitting him?"
If the answer is no, then guess what. You're too close, and you're going too fast. Its the very definition of the phrase, period. If you need to be 12 car lengths behind someone in order to A) See that they have stopped - And B) Apply your brakes and avoid hitting that car - Then you need to travel 12 car lengths behind the car in front of you. Its math, its physics. There is no debate. If you slam into the car in front of you on the highway, its your fault. Period. Its proof that you were either too close or you were going too fast. Why? Because you hit them, thats why. Duh !
I think all you morons should read this guys post and STFU.
The guy in the Hummer rear ended someone on the highway. It was HIS FAULT, period. A far as all the "money hungry" comments go, you people should STFU as well. It is standard procedure to sue someone who rear ends you, regardless of who they are and how much money they have. Millions of people are sued for rear ending the car in front of them every year, and most of the people being sued are NOT millionaires. That doesnt mean that the one percent who ARE millionaires are sued because they have money.
They get sued because they rear ended some one.
Its no wonder this country is so f'ed up.
You people are all f'in idiots.
