Rocker Bret Michaels Files Injury Lawsuit Against CBS, Tonys

Rockstar Bret Michaels filed an injury lawsuit late last month against CBS and the Tony Awards, alleging that producers of the awards show are responsible for injuries Michaels sustained after his performance at the show. According to the injury lawsuit, Michaels asked prior to the show for specific information about where to stand and how to exit the stage during and after his performance. He was told to simply exit to the rear of the stage.

Unfortunately, “during the opening number on telecast, Michaels suffered a fractured nose and split lip after he was hit by a large sign descending from the ceiling following Poison’s performance of “Nothin’ But a Good Time” with the “Rock of Ages” cast,” according to Yahoo! News.

The injury lawsuit alleges that Michaels was unaware that the scenery piece would be descending and was not warned about the potential hazards associated with the moving set.

Additionally, six months later “Michaels suffered a near fatal subarachnoid hemorrhage — bleeding beneath the thin tissue covering the brain — ‘at the hands of the Tony Awards,’ the lawsuit claims.”

While the rocker has recovered from the accident, the injury lawsuit claims that producers have not remedied the situation and have placed blame for the accident on Michaels, indicating that he “missed his mark.” It is possible that the injury lawsuit is more about Michaels wanting the awards show to take responsibility for their negligence than seeking compensation.
