Justin Bieber Sued For Personal Injury After Pedestrian Accident
Justin Bieber recently managed to get out of a DUI charge in Florida, but now he faces a pedestrian accident lawsuit in California, for allegedly hitting a pedestrian in a minor car accident last year.
Walter Damon Lee filed his pedestrian accident lawsuit on Wednesday, June 25th, in the Superior Court of Los Angeles. Lee claim that the teen pop idol hit him while driving his Ferrari around Laurel Avenue last June. Lee alleges that he has been unable to work as a result of the accident.
Lee alleges in his complaint that Bieber “negligently, carelessly, recklessly, wantonly and unlawfully” caused the Ferrari to hit him “thereby causing injuries and damages”. Lee’s injuries are described as “laceration and crush injury, hematoma formation, deep abrasions to the left knee and leg, fluid collection in the left knee and leg, deep venous thrombosis in the calf and ankle.” Lee also alleges a “loss of earning capacity” in addition to ongoing medical needs as he has recovered from his car accident injuries.
Lee claims personal injury and property damage in excess of $25,000 as a result of the pedestrian accident.
Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Litigation from Pedestrian Accidents
A pedestrian accident can transform a routine drive into a life-changing catastrophe. Every year, thousands of drivers end up in a South Carolina car wreck, and on average about 800 of them will lose their lives.
Typical causes of car accidents include driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, automobile defect, failed maintenance, failing to be careful, speeding, running stops signs or stop lights, failing to yield the right of way, not paying attention because of using cell phone or PDA, adjusting radio or DVD player, or eating while driving.
If a loved one dies as a result of the negligence, reckless, or intentional conduct of another, you may be entitled to bring a claim for wrongful death. A wrongful death lawsuit asserts a claim against a person who can be held legally responsible for a death. Surviving family members may be entitled to damages; money that can help with the expenses caused by the loss of their loved one.
A South Carolina wrongful death lawsuit seeks compensation for:
- medical bills and funeral expenses
- loss of income
- loss of consortium and loss of support.
