Second Civil Lawsuit Filed Following Traffic Accident Involving Caitlyn Jenner

Caitlyn Jenner, who was Bruce Jenner at the time of a fatal February 7 traffic accident in California, is the subject of a second civil suit resulting from the incident. Jenner won the decathlon gold medal in the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, Canada.

Jenner’s SUV Involved

The SUV that Jenner was driving collided with a small white car at an intersection along the Pacific Coast Highway. This collision allegedly caused the car to swerve out into traffic. A 69-year-old woman died, and others suffered injury in the wreck. Jenner was not seriously injured.

One week after Caitlyn Jenner originally appeared in a major TV interview, survivors of the deceased woman filed a wrongful death lawsuit against her. 

Personal Injury Suit Now Filed

Now, Reuters reports that a Hollywood talent manager has filed personal injury litigation against Jenner, alleging that injuries resulted from Jenner’s driving. The suit alleges that Jenner caused the crash by driving “negligently, carelessly, recklessly and wantonly.” The complainant filed the lawsuit on Monday, June 8, in Los Angeles Superior Court, and it seeks unspecified damages. 

When it is possible to reasonably claim that negligent driving led to a traffic accident with injuries and/or fatalities, victims and survivors often file civil lawsuits that seek compensation. Personal injury litigation often seeks damages for medical expenses, pain-and-suffering and lost wages. Although outcomes vary, settlements occur in many such cases without a trial.

When you or a family member is a victim of possible negligent conduct on the state’s roadways, it is possible to discuss the matter with an attorney focused on appropriate aspects of the law. To learn more, please contact us.
