    The fact that your organization chose not to continue is the organization's decision, not the familiy's. They continue elsewhere all over this country - ALL knowing the results of this incident.

    No I wasn't at any of the legal proceedings, am not an attorney, but based on the info you've presented, I assume the "system" did not consider it an accident and placed the liabiltiy accordingly. Do I think they should have been able to sue SOTW, NO. However, the bottom line is that SOTW did not protect itself adequately either or would have been dismissed from liability.
    No ,the problem is lawyers donít acknowledge waivers They donít care what the waiver said They saw insurance money and went after it They donít have to be right, they just want a settlement of money they think if they bully they will get some settlement even if the waiver is iron clad

    Was there a settlement or was it decided by the court (judge)? If settled, why not go to trial?

    I agree most ambulance chasing attorneys are the scum of the earth and have exploited the system far beyond intent.
