So this woman drank herself into a stupor, somehow managed to fall over a railing ( not easy to do ) into the ocean and is now suing the cruise line for getting her drunk.
She is an adult. She made choices. Nobody poured the alcohol down her throat. She did not just “slip” and go over the railing. She had to be doing something stupid for that to happen. She is lucky that a huge ocean liner under full steam was able to turn around, come back and find her in the dark. She should be kissing their feet for saving her life after a night of dumb decisions instead of suing them. Maybe the next cruise line will think twice before saving the life of a drunk guest who goes overboard.
Its easy to blame the Lawyers for these crazy law suits but if it wasn’t for human greed and the need to have someone to blame for our misfortunes as well as the lay people on the juries who hand out the awards the lawyers wouldn’t waste their time and effort bringing these cases. We ALL need to start putting the blame where it belongs and expect some degree of personal responsibility in ourselves and others.
