A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against the father of a 20-year-old who lost control of his vehicle and slammed into a building, killing one passenger and seriously injuring another. The driver was in a coma for months, and remains “physically and mentally incapacitated.” Although he is undergoing 18 hours of physical therapy a week, doctors do not feel he will ever be competent. The surviving passenger has no recollection of the night and continues to suffer lasting injuries from the accident.
Authorities said the young man was speeding and under the influence of controlled dangerous substances last summer when his Honda Civic slammed into a building. The lawsuit claims that his father should have known or knew about his son’s history of drunk driving. County records indicated that he was jailed on a marijuana distribution charge in November. His license had been previously suspended for stemming from a summons for driving under the influence.
In addition to naming the driver and his father, the suit seeks to hold responsible those who gave him the alcohol, as well as those who drank with him. The lawsuit alleges that before the accident, the driver was at the property of the unidentified defendants, and that he was already “visibly intoxicated” when those unnamed defendants continued to provide, share, and condone the consumption of alcoholic beverages and/or controlled, dangerous substances.
This lawsuit will most likely take a long time to settle because one passenger is dead, the other has no memory, and the driver is incompetent, making it difficult to determine what the driver did and with whom just before the crash. The cost of a funeral in itself can also be quite pricey. Medical bills can also lead to financial devastation. While these victims and their families did not cause this tragic situation, nonetheless it is one they are facing, and will continue to face for a long time.
