Ex-Crystal Meth Addict Successfully Sues Dealer
What a precedent this sets. This saskatchewan woman fell into a coma for 11 days after smoking crystal meth. When the justice system failed her, she launched a lawsuit against her dealer - and won.
A Saskatchewan woman who overdosed on crystal methamphetamine has successfully won a precedent-setting civil lawsuit against the drug dealer who sold her the highly addictive drug.
Sandra Bergen, 23, and her family launched a lawsuit against Clinton Davey in 2005 after she suffered a heart attack in Biggar, Sask. that left her in a coma for 11 days.
She has since developed a heart condition that leaves her constantly fatigued and limits her chances of ever having children.
In her statement of claim, Bergen said Davey knew the drug was highly addictive and the sale of the drug was "for the purpose of making money but was also for the purpose of intentionally inflicting physical and mental suffering on Sandra."
