Injured fans may sue NASCAR

February 26th, 2013 in News

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Three fans injured last weekend during a NASCAR race the day before the Daytona 500 have hired a lawyer, but some experts say they could face tough obstacles in winning damages.

Matt Morgan, the lawyer for the fans, said Tuesday his clients are exploring a possible lawsuit. He said any potential action would focus on the safety fence used on the track at Daytona International Speedway.

Morgan said he hoped something could be worked out with NASCAR to avoid a lawsuit.
