The defendants – wrestling superstar, Hulk Hogan and his family. Graziano’s parents are suing Hogan under Florida’s “Dangerous Instrumentality Doctrine” which holds the owner of an automobile vicariously responsible for the negligent operation of that vehicle.
Experienced Florida personal injury lawyers know how to use Florida’s laws to achieve substantial compensation for their seriously injured clients.
Hogan’s son, Nick Bollea, was driving a car registered in his father’s name at the time of the crash.
The August 2007 auto accident (see my post on March 13th about this crash) left Bollea’s friend, Graziano with permanent brain damage and other serious injuries that will require daily nursing care for the rest of his life.
Bollea faces charges of reckless driving involving serious bodily injury. He will be tried on these charges next month.
The Graziano family filed a lawsuit against Hulk Hogan (Terry Bollea), his wife Linda and son Nick, charging them with negligence.
The lawsuit, which was filed on Monday in Pinellas County, Florida, alleges that the Bollea family is directly liable for the accident.
While no amount of money will ever repair the damage the Graziano family has suffered and will continue to suffer every day, a substantial damage award will allow them to focus on their son’s medical care and rehabilitation without worrying about the enormous medical bills he is incurring on a daily basis.
