My philosophy is that if you are injured by another you are entitled to compensation for the cost of your injury, given that you did not contribute to your own injury. Since Dan is still alive I wonder how much economic damage was done? Certainly not $4 mil - he wouldn't earn that much in his lifetime.
About time we stopped rewarding 'punitive' damages and allowing such frivalous suits. I'd LOVE to be on a jury for this one!
This is exactly why people dive solo, boats stop running, and why equipment costs continue to go up. Thanks to people who try to make a quick buck off of something where there was no harm really done. He should just be thankful to God and get on with it.
