Boy, 8, sued in ski crash

http://www.rockymountainnews.com/new...ski-collision/


Quote:
A 60-year-old man is taking an 8-year-old boy and his dad to court, claiming the third-grader caused a ski-slope collision that left the older man with a shoulder injury.

David J. Pfahler of Allentown, Pa., filed suit in Denver federal court claiming Scott Swimm, of Vail, then 7, was skiing fast and recklessly when they ran into each other in January. Pfahler's suit says he suffered a torn shoulder tendon.

The boy told Pfahler he was sorry and started to ski away when the man grabbed Scott’s legs, cursed at him and said he would sue, Robb Swimm told The Aspen Times.

“I was really scared,” Scott said to the Times.

Chalat said Pfahler works in publishing for Reader's Digest and wants to go back to work.

The suit seeks compensation for physical therapy, vacation time, nursing and medical services provided by Pfahler's wife and other expenses. It estimates the couple's losses at more than $75,000.

They are talking on the news that Pfahler is recieving harassing calls for trying to sue an eight year old. Some are even calling his job wanting him fired.
I think it is rediculoius to add nursing expense provided by his wife.
What it it coming too, I just don't know.
