Daughters file claim against Palo Alto over mother's death
Original post made by Ada, Midtown, on May 15, 2009
The daughters of a 66-year-old woman who was hit and killed by an SUV in Palo Alto last year have filed a claim against the city, raising the possibility of a lawsuit.According to the claim filed by Phyllis Seidman's daughters, Jennifer and Karen, the city is liable for their mother's death on Dec. 2, 2008, because of the poor construction and maintenance of the crosswalk at Embarcadero Road and Cowper Street where she was hit.
When will society rebell against frivolous lawsuits? It is costing taxpayers lots of money that could have been spent on universal healthcare or environment.
