Because the US judicial system is a permissive system that allows a colorable claim to be presented to a judge or jury for resolution. The woman was injured, the injury was caused by her nephew, and she believed that he (his family, really, or their insurance) should pay for her damages. That's a legitimate civil claim, though most normal people would just realize that it's probably not worth suing family over -- what people are responding to here is an emotional presentation, not an actual abuse of the legal system.

If you are injured, can prove damages, and can show causation for those damages, that's precisely what the judicial system is for -- to provide you a venue to claim for compensation from the person who injured you. You then win or lose on the merits of your case, not on the emotional context of the tabloid press.

Also, what's not being reported is that the child was likely covered by homeowner's or rental insurance, and the lawsuit was as much for compensation from that company as it was from the family.

A "frivolous" claim is one without merit and without factual basis; this is simply not that kind of case."

Common sense won in the end, the jury dismissed her case.
