As many people may know by now, famous musician and TV personality, Bret Michaels, is suing Tony Award Productions and CBS for unspecified damages. Mr. Michaels’ personal injury lawyers are claiming that the producers are liable for the injuries that Michaels suffered when a piece of scenery hit him in the head. His attorneys also allege that the head trauma caused the hemorrhage that Michaels suffered six months after the initial Tony Awards incident.
The personal injury lawyers claim that the producers’ failure to warn caused Michaels’ head trauma and hemorrhage. The attorneys say that the producers failed to explain to Michaels how to exit the stage in a safe manner, even after he allegedly asked about the exit procedure in rehearsals. As a Pembroke Pines Personal Injury Lawyer I think it will be very interesting to see how this case plays out. I’m sure that the media and the tabloids will follow this case very closely because of Bret Michaels’ celebrity status.
His injury lawyers also state that “One of the most common causes of this type of hemorrhage is head trauma–exactly like the one Michaels suffered at the hands of the Tony Awards.” His lawyers are trying to prove that Tony Award Productions and CBS are liable for the accident at the Tony Awards in addition to the fact that the head trauma he suffered caused the subsequent hemorrhage. As a Pembroke Pines Personal Injury Lawyer, I can attest that brain injury lawsuits are very difficult legal terrain to navigate, so his lawyers will need to have substantial proof of the producers’ liability and of how the Tony Awards accident caused the hemorrhage.
Throughout my thirty year career as a Pembroke Pines Personal Injury Attorney I have seen many celebrity lawsuits. I am curious to see if this lawsuit is settled outside of court in order to keep the damages award, if any, from becoming public knowledge. As stated, we don’t know as of yet how much compensation Michaels is seeking for the catastrophic injuries that he suffered. His ability to recover damages in this personal injury lawsuit will depend on whether or not the defendants are found liable for Michaels’ head injuries.
