>With no insurance and medical bills to pay they sued - the makers of the kid's jeans for not being visible

Who are you kidding?

This is America -- their insurance company sued the makers of the kid's jeans. Subrogation baby!

(And sarcasm aside, many if not most of the "you've got to be kidding me" lawsuits you hear about in the name of John Doe v. ______ are not filed by John Doe, but by his auto|health|homeowners insurance company which holds the subrogation rights to sue on his behalf and compel his co-operation in said lawsuit.)
