Soap Opera Star Struck Following Traffic Collision
On January 2, 2015, a well-known television actor was hit by a errantly driven vehicle while she was on the sidewalk on the Westside. The actor was taken to the hospital with injuries but said to be awake and responsive. The exact nature of her injuries is presently unknown and the cause of the accident is under police investigation.
Does the injured actor have grounds to sue the driver of the vehicle that injured her?
Yes, perhaps. In an injury lawsuit the injured party is allowed to sue to recover damages stemming from the injuries they suffered at the hands of the party that injured them. The issue is that we don’t have answers to in this matter is cause. The police have yet to state the cause of the accident. Upon learning that a more determinative evaluation can be conducted in order to determine whether the actor may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the driver of the car or other responsible party.
