So it turns out you can’t sue a moose. What kind of bull is that?
Heavyweight accident and injury lawyer Ches Crosbie is suggesting one way to write the wrongs of the biggest bullies on the road.
He’s recently questioned the potential for a class action lawsuit for victims of moose-vehicle accidents, claiming that because the government of Newfoundland brought the animals here in 1912, it would be guilty of negligence if the hazard was foreseeable back then. He then says there also may be a good argument for “public nuisance.”
In a post on his website, Crosbie himself calls it a “risky case.”
At least, he states, the government should improve disability and rehab benefits for those injured.
