The lawyer of a woman who said she was injured by her husband in a car crash said his decision to file for divorce from him was a miscarriage of justice and was tantamount to abandoning her.
Amy Eichner told ABC News the decision was a mistake and she was prepared to go to court.
“I have never seen a husband be so disrespectful, I have never felt so afraid in my life, she said.
Eichner, who was married to the husband of her son, said the couple has been married for 27 years and she and her husband were in the process of divorcing in the US.
She said they had been trying to settle the issues but the couple decided to end their marriage and moved to the US to pursue their careers.
A hearing was set for this week to decide the divorce of her husband.
Her lawyers said the decision to pursue a divorce was in line with the law, but it was unfair and a miscarriage.
They say the woman suffered permanent brain damage and a traumatic brain injury, and they are demanding the couple pay more than $300,000 in damages.
In a statement on its website, the California Department of Insurance said the insurance company had agreed to pay $300 million for the wrongful death of Ms Eichners son, Ethan, who suffered a brain injury when he was struck by a car in December 2013.
‘I think I’ve been wrong’ Amy Eichrer says her son’s brain injury was due to the wife’s decision to divorce her husband, who is a former Uber driver, in California.
Ms Eicher told ABC’s Good Morning America on Sunday that her son was driving home from a birthday party in November 2013 when the car struck him.
The driver of the car, David Eichers, was arrested and charged with reckless driving, hit-and-run and fleeing an accident.
After Eicherts son was found unharmed, the family moved to Austin, Texas, where Amy Echner said her husband has a business.
When asked what she would say to the family if she had the chance, Amy Efner said she would simply say: “I think it’s a miscarriage, but I think we should be able to have this conversation”.
She added: “The issue is whether the couple should be paying the money that is going to be paid, not whether they should be receiving it.
We’re doing what’s right, and we’re not going to stop doing what we’re doing.
“Amy Efners attorney, Mark Lohman, said it was a “difficult situation” but the family would continue to pursue legal action.”
It’s very hard to know where the line is,” he said.”
The court of law has a lot of discretion, but we don’t know where that line is, so we’re going to continue to fight it.
