Good Samaritan Sued

Generally the good smartians are protected from law suit since the intention is to help people who are grievously injured and the professional medical help is yet to arrive. That’s what the law was until now.

But lets look at the present California imbroglio where a Good Samaritan pulled out a friend from the crashed car but in doing so aggravated the injury many times over.

Alexandra Van Horn claims that Lisa Torti pulled her out of the vehicle, which had just crashed into a lamp post at 45mph, “like a rag doll” and contributed to her injuries.

According to the Good Samaritan on the scene of the incident, Miss Torti  believed the car was about to burst so she had to act fast.

But in this case the California Supreme Court undertook a landmark decision that critics are deriding but the court has agreed that California’s Good Samaritan law is meant to protects people from liability if they are administering emergency aid. And that’s it. So perhaps here the understanding is that pulling somebody out of a wreck is not emergency aid.

Whats your take on this? Do you agree with this decision and would it impact your behavior in case you come across a crash site? Tell us about it below.
