WWE has gone through a rough time ever since the pandemic began, which has caused for some nasty backstage changes to occur. They are doing well financially, but the overall climate might not agree. However, that is not the only problem that WWE will be dealing with.
Jackson Parsons filed a lawsuit against WWE on June 12th after getting in an accident with a car rented by WWE. The driver of the vehicle was also an employee of the company. Parsons was riding a motorcycle, and he suffered heavy damage. According to PW Insider, Parsons claims that:
[He] suffered physical injuries, pain-and-suffering, disability and the inability and loss of the capacity to lead and enjoy normal life, inconvenience, disfigurement, scarring and mental anguish.
Parsons’ new appeal is, according to the recent record updates of the case Thirteenth Judicial Circuit in and for Hillsborough Circuit, Florida to reach a settlement for a whopping $1,064,328.38. The record also notes is way above the initial cost of damages sought by Parsons in this civil action lawsuit.
The lawsuit continues with claims about Parsons health bills of the treatment from the injuries totals to $171,430.38, and it’s projected to go as high as $314,850.00. He’s lost a total of $75,036.00–$100,048.00 in his earnings as well.
Parsons seeks a total of $76,500.00 for the quality of life reduction and his anguish in dealing with the inconveniences which overpower his life, as well as $401,500 for the sufferings he has to endure in the long run.
As he filed this plea for settlement in December 2020, the time for both of the parties to come together and settle would end in September 10th, 2021. If they fail to do so, they go on trial somewhere around February 2023.
