Actress Jodie Sweetin who once starred in the popular sitcom Full House has filed a lawsuit against seeking damages from a driver, Clark Taylor Savros that caused her to over a year ago.
Sweetin related the events of the accident last March over Twitter, saying “Someone turned left right in front of me right as I went through the intersection.”
The collision happened in Los Angeles at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Alvarado Street; Sweetin suffered from a wrist fracture, neck, and back pain. Both Sweetin’s and the driver’s vehicles were totaled.
The lawsuit is asking for $25,000 for “future loss of earnings and future medical expenses,” in addition to loss of wages and property damage.
Rumors have begun swirling that Sweetin, who has struggled with drug addiction issues, is in desperate need of cash since she waited so long to file the suit.
It isn’t uncommon for accident victims to retain accident lawyers and file lawsuits sometime after a traffic accident. All states impose a statute of limitations on accident lawsuits but the can extend anywhere from one to three years.
Personal injury victims are well within their rights to hold negligent drivers liable for the harm they cause. When they need to recover the medical and property damage costs from a careless driver, an accident attorney will work hard to build an effective case and make certain the victims receive a favorable settlement.
Accident lawyers have extensive experience in dealing with injury cases which makes them more than qualified to negotiate with insurance companies or present a strong court case.
