Bruce Jenner Faces Wrongful Death Lawsuit From Car Crash
Bruce Jenner is in a world of hot water following his February accident that claimed the life of a woman named Kim Howe. We didn’t mean that he would be facing any sort of serious repercussions, because, well, he’s famous and everything. According to TMZ, the stepchildren of his victim are going after the former Olympian in court.
Howe doesn’t have any direct relatives, but when she passed away, her stepchildren have the right to sue for wrongful death. They are gearing up to sue the pants off of Bruce Jenner after he slammed into her Lexus on the Pacific Coast Highway on February 7, 2015.
Her two stepchildren live out of the state of California and they didn’t share a close relationship with Howe. A source close to Howe said that she had “virtually no relationship” with either of her stepchildren. Despite that, her stepchildren have both hired a lawyer in order to take Bruce Jenner to court. They are the only ones who actually have a legal right to file a wrongful death lawsuit in California.
The lawyer for one of the stepchildren has instructed his client to find pictures of the deceased so they can establish that there was some sort of relationship between the children and Howe. Apparently, they need photographic evidence of them with the deceased in order to establish damages in the case.
It’s a shame that her stepchildren are going after Jenner, but he does deserve to suffer consequences from the unfortunate circumstances that he has found himself in. He didn’t get charged with a crime, so perhaps this is for the best.
TELL US: Do you think the stepchildren should be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit in this case – considering that they were estranged from Kim Howe at the time of her passing?
