Caitlyn Jenner faces personal injury suit for February crash

A family involved in the fatal Feb. 7 crash that involved Caitlyn Jenner is suing her for the distress and suffering from their injuries. This may not be surprising to Pennsylvania fans of the television star, who is facing two other lawsuits related to the accident.

According to the police report, Jenner was driving her Cadillac Escalade on the Pacific Coast Highway when her vehicle rear-ended a Lexus. The impact pushed the car into the path of a Hummer H2. After hitting the Lexus, Jenner's Escalade also rear-ended a Toyota Prius.

The family in the H2 filed a personal injury suit on Dec. 4 against Jenner for negligence. The family includes an Austrian music producer, his model wife, his mother-in-law and his two children, all of whom were injured in the crash, according to the lawsuit.

The court documents say that the producer suffered significant nerve damage to his hands and wrists. His wife reportedly suffered great blunt force trauma, and his mother-in-law suffered a serious cervical fracture that is permanently debilitating. Along with injuries, the two children allegedly suffered emotional trauma. The family is suing for an unspecified amount of damages. The lawsuit also comes after authorities announced in September that Jenner was cleared of criminal wrongdoing in the highway accident. Prosecutors in Los Angeles County revealed that she will not be charged with vehicular manslaughter.

No matter the status of those involved in a car accident, the victims could be eligible for personal injury compensation if they were injured because of the negligence of another driver. Sometimes cases involving individuals who are well known become more complicated, so the victims of such cases may seek legal counsel for help.
