Lost Star Matthew Fox allegedly assaults bus driver

TMZ reports that Matthew Fox, best known of his role on Lost, was arrested early Monday Morning after allegedly punching a woman after attempting to board a Cleveland bus. The woman, a bus driver, was injured after telling Fox that he could not board the party bus because he was intoxicated and he was not on the guest list.

Fox punched the driver in the stomach and the chest, but the woman retaliated punching Fox in the mouth. Reports indicate that the driver did not suffer serious injury, although she did have to seek medical attention for her injured hand.
An off-duty police officer was at the scene and Fox was handcuffed, questioned by police but later released without being formally charged with assault and battery.

The driver has made statements since the altercation that she does not plan to allow Fox to “get away” with anything, regardless of whether or not he is a celebrity.

Filing a Personal Injury Claim

We do not know yet whether this woman has decided to file a personal injury claim or whether the story is accurate but individuals who have been injured by the negligent or illegal actions of another person may be able to file a personal injury claim and receive compensation for their personal injuries. More common personal injuries include: car accidents, construction site accidents, medical malpractice claims, dog bites, wrongful death cases, and motorcycle accidents.

Personal injuries can happen at any time. If you have been injured in a personal injury, taking immediate action can ensure that you do not lose the opportunity to file an injury claim and receive compensation or payment for your loss.

Keep in mind, regardless of whether or not Matthew Fox is ever found guilty of assault and battery at a criminal trial, the driver in this incident may be able to file a civil claim and receive compensation for any injuries she has suffered. Civil claims generally do not require as high a burden of proof as a criminal charge.

How much is a personal injury claim worth?

If you have been the victim of the negligent or reckless actions of another person and you have suffered either physical or emotional harm, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim against that person and recover damages for the following:

• Past, current and future medical costs
• Past and future lost income
• Property damage
• Cost of hiring help to perform tasks that you are no longer able to perform
• Permanent disfigurement or disability expenses
• Pain and suffering
• Any other costs directly related to your injury

Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer

Every state has a statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims. Failure to file a personal injury claim within the statute of limitations can eliminate a claimant’s right to compensation.

Due to the variances in state laws regarding personal injury, it is always a good idea to contact a personal injury lawyer in your state who is familiar with filing a personal injury claim.
