I work for a national company and part of my jub (not in the union contract though) is to drive from time to time the company's car, with other coworkers in it.
I was driving a van, I stopped and one of my coworkers got off the car in front of the building, because her knees were painful and she did not want to come all the way from the parking lot at the rear end of the building.
I thought she was already goint towards the building and since there was nobody in the middle seat, I thought I just turn the car and park right there. At that moment she leaned back fro her staff and when I pushed the brake, the sliding door of the van hit her and she fell to the floor. She was not under the car, she was nothing close to the tires or something.
Next day everybody was teasing me that she would be filing a lawsuit, since she already did that to 2 other workers eithin 5 years.
I live in CT, where - if I got the correct information - nobody can file a lawsuit against the employer.
She did file the lawsuit and she did it against me, personally.
What can I do to prove she is a scammer, she just wants money and get retired? I can not afford a long lawsuit, I don't have the money for it.
