Los Angeles: British comedian Russell Brand is being sued for $185,000
by pedestrian Victor Sneed.
A person named Victor Sneed claims he needs more than the
original $25,000 he asked for after being hit by a car last year,
which he says Brand was driving. Sneed alleges his mammoth medical
bill needs to be paid for injuries to his left hand, left hip, neck
and left wrist, reports contactmusic.com. He claims he's already
spent $45,000 in medical expenses and will need yet another
$140,000 for future surgeries.
However, Brand has strongly denied the claims and refuses to
cough up the cash, believing Sneed own negligence was to blame for
A court document reads: "Under the provisions of the California
Code of Civil Procedure, (Russell Brand) denies both generally and
specially each, every and all of the allegations contained in the
Complaint, and denies that plaintiff (Victor Sneed) sustained
damages in the sum alleged, or in any other sum or at all.
"Plaintiff is barred from any recovery on the basis that the
plaintiff's own negligence was the sole and proximate cause of the
accident and injuries he sustained." IANS
