Just when we think we’ve heard it all, we get word of another ridiculous lawsuit. This one’s out of Illinois, where a man was injured while riding as a passenger with a drunk driver. The driver, Nikolas Becoat, had consumed alcohol purchased at Shop N’ Save, a grocery store, shortly before getting in the accident.
The logical conclusion would be that the injured man, Jalen Smith, made a poor decision in deciding to be a passenger in a car driven by an intoxicated man. And, while it’s terribly unfortunate that he became injured, he should take personal responsibility for his injuries.
