We'll See if 41 Pages of Legalese Will Protect Them

An Icon A5 crashed in California earlier today, killing both people aboard.

Icon is infamous for its 41-page sales agreement. They trimmed it down somewhat after they got lambasted. But it's going to be interesting to see if they can make it stick against the bereaved.

How they manage to enforce a contract with a dead person when it's a live person who didn't sign that contract who is suing is going to be... interesting.

Isn't that what estates are for?

Negligence is NEVER covered.

So if one can show that,...

BadTux, they try by saying that the agreement is "binding on heirs, successors and assigns", or shit to that effect.

Yeah, they can say it, but I know that here in California they'd be laughed out of court making that argument. Pretty well established that you can't sign an agreement on behalf of another person unless you have power of attorney over that person.

They were Icon employees . I doubt they signed a purchase contract . Wonder what they did sign .
