Personal Responsibility?
August 20, 2013 | 09:10 AM

I'm sorry this woman was hurt. The injuries sound painful. While businesses have a duty to maintain their property, individuals also have a basic duty to pay attention to where they are walking. It's very hard to miss a 5 foot by 4 foot deep hole and 'trip' in or over it unless you simply aren't looking where you're walking. Instead of taking personal responsibility for the situation, she's passing the buck to the insurance company and that cost eventually gets passed on to the rest of us.
