LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – NASCAR fans will sue after suffering crash debris injuries at Daytona. Several NASCAR fans announced plans to sue for purported injuries suffered during the NASCAR Nationwide race at Daytona last Saturday February 23, 2013. During the Kyle Larson car crash, a tire and other debris landed into spectatorsâ€™ seats.
Matt Morgan, of the Morgan and Morgan law firm, confirms to news Monday that he is suing on behalf of two fans. MyFoxOrlando which reported news of the case does not indicate the names of the defendants.
“The holder of this ticket expressly assumes all risk incidents to the event” says language that appears on Daytona tickets. But legal analysts tell Fox that such disclaimer language is purportedly “meaningless.”
At the race several spectators recorded the crash and uploaded their recordings to YouTube. For reasons still unknown, privately recorded video(s) at the crash site were removed thereafter, prompting debate thereafter on social media.
Spokeswoman Lindsay Rew told news last weekend that two persons were treated Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center. Twelve were treated at Halifax Health Medical Center, spokesperson Byron Cogdell told CNN. And many as fourteen spectators were injured overall. Ten ambulances responded to the crash site at the time.
â€śAt 8 a.m., we met with NASCAR, we reviewed all of the repairs that we made last evening,â€ť speedway president Joie Chitwood said in a statement last weekend. â€śWe worked late into the evening and are prepared to go racing today.â€ť
