Tennis star Venus Williams has responded to a Florida wrongful death lawsuit stemming from a June fatal car accident that she was involved in that left a 78 year old man dead. According to legal documents, Williams denies that she contributed in any way to the death or injuries of the other passengers. Instead, she cites contributory negligence, arguing that the plaintiffs were negligent in their failure to wear seatbelts and that this was the sole cause of their injuries and the death. The defense also claims that the vehicle owners failed to properly maintain and repair their vehicle and that this too contributed to their injuries/death.
