Poll: Shia LaBeouf, Injured While Driving Drunk – Does He Have a Right to Sue?
Published On: August 3, 2008
According to Sandy Cohen of the Associated Press, “Shia LaBeouf could have a long road before him as he recovers from the accident that crushed his hand, his lawyer says.
“LaBeouf, 22, was injured in a late-night crash last Sunday in West Hollywood that flipped his truck. The “Indiana Jones” star was cited for drunken driving, but authorities have since said he was not at fault, and that the other driver apparently ran a red light.
“Michael Norris, LaBeouf’s attorney, said in a statement Friday LaBeouf underwent four hours of surgery. His left arm remains immobilized from the elbow down.
“He will need regular medical supervision until his doctors clear him to return to work,” Norris said in the statement. “His doctors remain hopeful that he will fully recover, but due to extensive surgery and the nature of the injuries, there remains a substantial risk of both infection and other complications.”
