Familiar Faces and Their Personal Injury Cases
Negligence-based injuries happen to everyone — even the rich and famous. Usually, the attorneys who represent celebrity clients are as famous as their clients. These lawyers are known for being aggressive and for winning their cases. Here’s a list of a few celebrities who filed suit recently.
- Bret Michaels was hit on the face by a large sign that fell on him at the 2009 Tony Awards.
Poison’s ex-front man was seriously injured, but he didn't realize how bad the injury was. In 2010, he suffered a brain hemorrhage from the accident and was hurried to the emergency room where he nearly died from the extensive bleeding. He is suing CBS, the producers of the show, because he was not told how or where to exit the stage. A personal injury attorney from Los Angeles is representing him.
- Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snookie” Polizzi has been spotted wearing a neck brace recently.
She was hurt when she ran her Fiat Mulipla into another vehicle while the show was filming in Florence, Italy. She claimed that the other driver was driving erratically. However, the other car was a police car, and the driver was a member of the Italian military police. Her case could take three years due to old Roman laws, and the outcome is far from certain. This suit will keep Snookie in the tabloids for the next few years.
- Glee star Lea Michele was injured when a drunk driver slammed into her car.
She wasn’t injured, but she was emotionally traumatized. The driver of the other car actually asked Michele if she was “drunk too.” Then, he drove away without leaving contact information. Michele managed to record the license plate number, and the police arrested the driver soon thereafter.
If you’ve been injured by a drunk driver, you should discuss the situation with a personal injury attorney. An experienced Oklahoma personal injury lawyer can help you recover financially and emotionally from the accident.
