  • Nascar Settles Brain Injury Lawsuit with Fan

    nascar brain injury lawsuit

    February 14, 2017 | Legal News

    A spectator at a Nascar event, who was struck in the head by debris, has agreed to a settlement.

    The fan, Allen Davis, suffered a traumatic brain injury when a car crash sent debris flying. Allen, who was sitting in the upper deck, was unfortunately stuck by some of the debris leaving him severely injured.

    Around 30 other fans were also injured.

    The terms of the brain injury lawsuit, and its settlement, have been kept confidential. Personal injury cases like this one show that sever injuries can happen at any time.

    Nascar is one of the world’s most dangerous sports, but this injury caused more damage to a spectator than a driver.

    This case opened Nascar’s eyes in a lot of ways. Just several months after the incident, two of the Country’s most popular tracks, Daytona International Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway, released a statement saying they would be adding additional safety precautions for the fans in the stands.

    Things like additional cables and netting has since been installed to add additional protection for spectators.

    The dangers of traumatic brain injuries

    Brain injuries are, often times, some of the most damaging injuries our bodies can suffer. The physical damage can last a lifetime, and the emotional or mental damage can be even worse.
