Racing fan settles catastrophic injury case with NASCAR

South Carolina is home to devoted legions of racing fans. Our part of the country is fortunate to host several top NASCAR races every year, including at Darlington Raceway in our state. The roar of the engines and the spectacle of stock cars flying around the track has been a tradition throughout the Southeastern United States for decades, and NASCAR is growing in popularity throughout the rest of the nation as well.

When finely tuned machines are traveling so fast, and in close proximity to one another, the potential for danger is always present. Injuries to drivers involved in crashes are often catastrophic, and many drivers have been killed in accidents over the years.

A much less frequent occurrence is a catastrophic injury to a spectator at one of these races. Fences around tracks are designed to maximize the safety of the fans in attendance. However, cars involved in a wreck are extremely difficult to control, and a collision or even a small bump at 150 miles per hour can lead to a horrific impact and debris spraying into the crowd.

This happened at a race in 2013, when a car flew through the air and hit the safety fence. More than 30 spectators suffered injuries, many of them serious enough to require hospitalization. The final pending lawsuit over spectator injury was at last settled this week. A man received an undisclosed settlement as a result of the traumatic brain injury he suffered when he was hit in the head with debris.

Experienced personal injury attorneys in South Carolina can help people who have suffered a catastrophic injury, such as a traumatic brain injury, as a result of a car or truck accident or other serious incident.
