NASCAR fans to sue race organizers at the Daytona 500 over the car crash this weekend has the public talking, as The Epoch Times reported this Tuesday, Feb. 26, that following a major crash that had debris from a race car flying into the crowd, some injured fans are now planning to sue the heads of Daytona International Speedway.
After 33 NASCAR fans were injured after a car flew into the protective fence near the stands this weekend in a dangerous crash, some of those hurt at the racing event are now filing a lawsuit against the Daytona International Speedway.
“No fan assumes the risk of a car flying in the stands and suffering a significant injury,” said hired attorney Matt Morgan.
The attorney was hired by three of the injured spectators, although the report noted that in the “NASCAR fans to sue race organizers” case, a NASCAR representative has visited each of the injured members in the hospital since the accident frequently.
“What we have to investigate is what was done and was there a safer fence that wasn’t put in place because of monetary considerations?”
Morgan added to the News Journal that one of three more seriously injured fans suffered a broken leg, while another had a head injury. None of the injuries were reported to be life-threatening, however.
