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 that 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 says he hopes something can be worked out with NASCAR to avoid a lawsuit.
Some experts say there could be grounds for a lawsuit, and that courts have looked past liability waivers written on the backs of sporting event tickets. Others maintain a ticket is a legal contract that could be hard to overcome in a suit.
