I realize people are itching to file a lawsuit over pretty much anything these days. But this is a new low. Back in 2012, a woman in Ontario, Canada named Sharlene Simon was driving her SUV down a dark road around 1:30 in the morning. And she hit three kids who were riding their bikes. One of them was a 17-year-old named Brandon Majewski, who was killed. And another kid suffered a broken pelvis.
And now Sharlene is suing the dead boy’s PARENTS, because she says the ordeal has given her, quote, “depression, anxiety, irritability, and post-traumatic stress.” And this is despite the fact that she was SPEEDING when it happened. But she claims it was the kids’ fault anyway.
She’s also suing the parents of the other two kids, as well as the county, because she says the road should have been maintained better. She’s seeking a total of $1.2 million.
