Law Suits Gone Crazy

I was driving home tonight and was listening to a local radio station and this story came up about a terrible accident that befelled a couple on a motorcycle. it also involved a 19 year old who was texting while driving and side swiped the couple, causing them to both lose there left leg.

Now in most states, you can not text while driving, its comon sense that all it takes is two to three seconds to be involved in an accident.
The lawyer for the couple named Skippy Bernstein thought hey why not go after a girl who was texing him and get more money. Has anyone ever heard of suing some one for texting? This reaches to a whole new level of stupidity.

The argument can be said that he didn't have to answer a text. Its like saying the phone company is at fult for developing the phone.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think that the girl should also be sued for sending a text to the 19 year old who in turn side swiped into the couple on the motorcycle?
