John Graney is suing Ex-NFL football star Larry Johnson for Miami-Dade County personal injury. He contends that the former Kansas City Chiefs running back beat him after a party last May on Miami Beach. Johnson also used to be signed with the Washington Redskins and the Cincinnati Bengals.
Graney, who is from Miami, claims that without provocation Johnson used a “closed fist” to “viciously” hit him multiple times, kicked him while he was on the ground, and chased him down the street. The plaintiff says that he sustained a torn rotator cuff and three herniated discs and is suffering form post-traumatic shoulder, wrist, and back pain.
Meantime, Johnson is denying the allegations. The police report describes Graney’s injuries as a “minor laceration” and “small abrasion.”
Miami Beach Personal Injury
If you or someone you love was injured in an assault, you may be able to sue your assailant for damages. Physical assault can result in serious injuries for the victim. Back injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and internal injuries are just some of the injuries that can result. If the assault occurred on someone else’s property and the premise owner could/should have acted to prevent the incident from happening, you may have grounds for filing a Miami premises liability lawsuit.
Assault crimes between strangers happen all the time in the United States. Sometimes, an altercation between two people that know each other can blow out of proportion, resulting in serious injuries for at least one of the participants. It is important that you speak with a Miami injury attorney while the physical evidence is still fresh and witnesses can provide detailed accounts of what happened.
