my sister had an elective paraophthalmic anerysm clipped in 2005. Unfortunately in 2007 my sister and I were in a auto accident My sister was the driver and I was the passenger.....she was never told she could not drive and holds to this day a valid drivers licence.!!!!!...My question arrises because I am AMAZINGLY being suied for neglagant entrustement of the car she was driving because they say I was her sister and should have know with her medical history(elective anerysm) that she should not have been driving. I know this is not true, she has always driven and to this day has a license but my attornies say the other driver has a valid argument until proven otherwise...I know this site is more for people experiencing personal anerysms and issues but My sister having an anerysm clipping in her medical history is causing me to be suied and I just wander if there is general information or literature that I can provide my attornies that would show that people return to normal life after surgery....Let me also tell you my sister is completely healthy, even after the accident her capability to drive has not been questioned by the state drivers licence so im saying she has a valid license with only provision is to wear corrective lenses. Also after her staples were removed in her post op visit in 2005, she was cleared and was told she did not need further followup visit unless something new arises that would cause her to seek medical attention......I know this is a crazy question but what seems logical to me...my sister has a valid drivers license , I dont feel i had during the accident or to this day in fact have any thought not to allow her to drive just because she has a history of elective clipping...even if you can just point me to documented literature on what average citizens can expect post clipping regarding their abilites to return to normal life (driving) it would be appreciated as I cant believe some "person" believes I should pay him almost 100,000 JUST because I was a passenger in a car where the DRIVER had a history of an anerysm clipping, thank you for your time, Michelle
