Maybe I'm just not thinking straight about this or overlooking something, but how many of us would be satisfied with insurance settlement if something so strange happened to our home.
What am I missing? I don't want to approve of suing a dead man's family - that certainly does nothing good as they continue to mourn - but I can kind of see why he would do that.
It's property. He can sue if he hasn't recieved restitution for his property/expenses incurred. Anything above that, IMO is frivolous.
Nobody was hurt.
If people start suing for "pain and suffering" (or whatever) whenever their property is damaged or they had a "close call", it will get ridiculous (not that it isn't already).
Yes...but "we could have been killed or injured". Right. You weren't...move on.
