    Funny that he isn't suing the family of the flight instructer. Surely he isn't suing Lidle's family because they have deep pockets?

    That's the best point made against this suit and a very good question to ask.

    Or it may be that the flight instructor's contract with Lidle specifically stated that the contractor assumed all potential future liabilities for any accident that occurred while he was in Lidle's employ.

    We don't have anywhere close to enough facts to draw conclusions as to whether or not the apartment owner is 'in the right' for filing his suit, but RB's points are an excellent summation of what could be going on here.

    I agree with RB and Wily Mo. We don't have all the facts.

    But if an airplane crashes into my house, I think that the estate of the responsible party (or the responsible party's insurer) should pay. My premiums should not increase, I shouldn't incur a single out of pocket expense. I should be made whole for every monetary or psychic loss as a direct or indirect result of the crash, to the extent that the law allows.

    On it's face, I don't see why the guy is taking so much heat for suing.

    Re: Apartment owner sueing Lidle's family

    This story reminded me of a promo I saw for an upcoming Extreme Makeover. From reading this article it sounds like (at least in this case) that the homeowners insurance has to cover the damage.


    "EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION" REBUILDS THE HOME OF A
    GIVING FAMILY WHOSE HOUSE WAS DEMOLISHED IN A PLANE CRASH

    Ty and the gang of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" head to Tampa, Florida to rebuild the home of a family whose house was destroyed by a small plane crash,

    on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," SUNDAY, MARCH 4 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) o*n the ABC Television Network.

    Tom and Cynthia Tate are well known in their tight knit community of Davis Island. Tom is the co-owner of Tate Brothers' Pizza and is responsible for giving most of the kids in town their first jobs, while Cynthia is extremely involved with the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and the PTA. The Tate Brothers are involved with almost every volunteer or charity event around Davis Island, and it's been said that many of the island kids have grown up in the Tate house. In that respect, June 12, 2006 was a rare day when the house was not filled with neighborhood kids. Out of the entire Tate family, o*nly Cynthia was at home when a plane crashed into the house. The pilot was killed, along with the family pets, and the co-pilot was badly burned but survived. Cynthia miraculously escaped without any injuries, while the house and everything inside it was destroyed. To make matters worse, because of a clerical error, the home was not insured, so the Tates are unable to pay off the existing mortgage, let alone rebuild their home.

    The Tate family has gone above and beyond in helping their community, and now it's time for Ty and the gang to lend a helping hand in return. This episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will feature the restoration of the home of o*ne of Davis Island's most beloved families, so that o*nce again it can be a gathering place for the entire community.

    While Ty and the designers, national homebuilder WCI Communities and hundreds of volunteers and workers are rebuilding their home in a remarkable seven days, the Tate family will go o*n vacation to Costa Rica o*n a Disney Adventure.

    The design team for this episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will feature team leader Ty Pennington and designers Paige Hemmis, Eduardo Xol, Tracy Hutson and Preston Sharp.

    The series is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. It's executive-produced by Denise Cramsey. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is broadcast with Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning. This program carries a TV-PG parental guideline.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    Actually, the suit should be filed against who owned the plane, Lidle. If you own a car, and let someone drive it, and they are in a wreck, the car is covered by YOUR insurance company. I assume the samething goes for airplanes.

    This was ruled as pilot error. They forgot to fill the plane with gas before take off, if my memory is correct.

    I don't get it PERIOD!!! They think they can get a chance of actually winning this lawsuit.

    One, you can't get money if something might of happened. Say that you find a worm or a finger in your burger from a fast food chain and don't eat it, you can't win a lawsuit because you almost ate it. Plus what about the horror of Lidle and the flight instructor's family had to deal with. I could think of a lot more people that are cold-hearted. These "people" are scum

    Actually, the suit should be filed against whoever may have been negligent or otherwise at fault. Again, I am applying W. Va. law here, since it is where I practice, but, assuming the state law to be applied is similar to that of W. Va., you generally should name as defendants anyone whom you have a good faith basis to assert may be liable.
    With all respect, George is flat out wrong in his implied assertion that if there is an automoblie accident the person to sue is the owner of the car, not the driver. Yes, in W. Va., the primary duty to defend generally rests with the insurer of the car, not the insurer of the negligent driver-----but you don't sue the insurance company, you sue the negligent party.
    If you only sue the owner, then you will need to prove, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the owner was guilty of neglegent trustment or some other act of negligence which should make the owner legally responsible for the driver's negligent driving, and you then still have to prove that the driver was negligent.
    Sue the driver directly, and negligent entrustment is not an issue, at least with regard to him or her--just carry your burden of proving that the driver was at fault. Yes, the driver will just be defended by the owner's insurer, but secondary coverage will also be owed by the driver's insurer.
    There is also the possibility that coverage under the owner's policy may be limited for the driver. For example, I have a case right now where the alleged negligent driver, son of the owner, was expressly excluded from coverage under the owner's policy. The owner's insurer therefore only has to arguably provide state minimum limits of $20,000 rather than the normal policy limits of $100,000. In this case the alleged negligent driver; his father, the vehicle owner; and his alleged employer have all been sued over the motor vehicle accident. The primary duty to defend rests first with the insurer of the owner, and then with the insurer of the driver. The alleged employer has denied that the driver was its employee or agent, but has its own coverage. Then there is the insurer who provided underinsurance coverage to the injured party himself.
    Again, you should name as defendants anyone whom you have a good faith basis to assert may be liable.

    Actually even the above statements are not always literally true. We now have cases where people allegedly are exposed to products that might cause them injury and seek damages for the cost of "medical monitoring." However, in genral, FoReel is right--you cannot recover for an injury you might have suffered but did not. However the "horror" that the families of Lidle and the flight instructor had to deal with is irrelevant. If the apartment damage was the fault of Lidle and the flight instructor, then their liability is not affected by what happened to them in the crash; in such event, they could have ejected from the plane without suffering physical harm, or, as actually occurred, tragically perished--neither outcome would affect their liability, if any.

    Incorrect. There was plenty of fuel, as the fire and damage would attest. The NTSB ruled that the wind pushed the plane toward the building, and the pilot (whomever that might have been) falied to compensate.
    Makes all the routine posts.

    I agree. Much of this depends on what sort of insurance policy Lidle had, and how much it covers. It's not unseemly at all to sue if he perceives the policy as deficient, especially with the reports that Lidle and his instructor were at fault.

    And I don't like the Post's spin. He's suing the estate for significant property damage to his Upper East Side apartment. Your average shoebox in Manhattan (400-500 sq ft) usually goes for $800K-$1M - so the $7 M figure doesn't seem to me unreasonable on its face, especially if he had valuable personal property (computers, televisions, etc.) inside.

    Re: Apartment owner sueing Lidle's family

    Not to mention the outrageous construction costs in NYC... I've heard horror stories about getting a toilet installed... re-doing an apartment damaged in such a unique fashion in the Upper East Side? The mind boggles.
