Thinking Twice About Being a Good Samaritan

Audio

Maureen Cavanaugh : Suppose you see a traffic accident.  You run to help and you actually manage to pull a victim from a car you think is about to explode. Do you get a medal? Or do you get slapped with a lawsuit? A recent decision by the California Supreme Court makes the lawsuit a distinct possibility.

We're going to talk about the so-called "Good Samaritan" ruling, plus other recent legal issues.

Guest

  • Dan Eaton , San Diego attorney and These Days legal analyst.
