I call BS! You can't sue for everything. We don't live in a perfect world so deal with it. Sorry to hear about her sister.

While I have no doubt that this was traumatic for her, it seems to me that one week's time is insufficient for a diagnosis as complex as PTSD. If it were me, I'd have spent the week thanking my lucky stars to be alive.
Guess she felt left out of the 9/11 victims' gravy train funds & didn't want to miss out again.

This is really absurd. There are many disturbing things that can happen in this world and you can't sue over them. What if a car honks at you and you thought it honked because it was going to hit you? Is there a lawsuit here? I hope her case gets thrown out at the first available point.

"We're seeking to hold Con Ed accountable," he said.

What, did someone from ConEd go down in the street and cause this explosion? Was it intentional? It's called an accident. I think the same day or the day before there was a monumental rainstorm. Maybe that caused it. Sue God.
Get over yourself honey. Be thankful you are alive and it's not your family suing ConEd for wrongful death (whereby you would see none of the $$$).

First - so sorry for her loss. But suing for PTSD so soon seems a little odd to me. It really does make it seem she is just looking to cash in. If she is really suffering I hope she gets help.

This is a very anti-semitic remark---------- I'm jewish- and proud- the italians are proud ---we don't constantly rolemodel them after the Sopranos- the Irish are not constantly role modeled by excessive imbibing- so stop characterizing us by the amount of justice we seek!!!

Another frivilous lawsuit to clog the already over jammed court system.

I wonder if she's stupid enough to put a cup of McDonalds coffee between her legs while driving!
