Last week, an SUV crashed into an Apple Store in Hingham, USA, killing a 65-year-old man and injuring 20. Today, the injured victims decided to sue Apple and other parties.
Attorneys representing several of the victims of the accident at the Hingham Apple Store said they have filed lawsuits against several people. “Our experts tell us that this disaster was 100% preventable”, said Doug Sheff of the Boston law firm Sheff & Cook. “They just had to put a few barriers or bollards between the traffic in the car park, which was very busy during the holidays, and the public, who were only about ten meters apart from the two”.
The complaint was filed against Apple, the owner of the building, the real estate developer and the driver of the SUV. One of the complainants is an Apple employee. Note that barriers have been installed since the accident.
Recently, Bradley Rein, the driver of the SUV (which claims to be a Toyota 4Runner), pleaded not guilty. He claimed his foot was stuck on the accelerator and he was unable to brake in time. He also said he used his left foot to try to brake but was unable to stop.
Tim Cook, the head of Apple, and Deirdre O’Brien, the manager of the Apple Store, also recently visited the victims… who are now filing a complaint against the company.
