EXCLUSIVE. Lil Scrappy’s friend, Ca$ino Roulette, got the worst of it when they got into that horrific car accident in Florida earlier this month, and now he’s preparing to sue over his extensive injuries … TMZ has learned.
Ca$ino’s attorney, Brett L. Schlacter, tells us … Ca$ino sustained life-altering injuries and is “Lucky to be alive.” He feels Scrappy was negligent and reckless when he fell asleep at the wheel.
We’re told Roulette was in ICU for 3 days following the accident and is now home in South Carolina recovering from his injuries – broken ribs, concussion, bruised lungs, liver and kidneys – and 2 major surgeries to repair his ruptured large intestine.
Schlacter says Ca$ino’s pursuing legal action to cover medical expenses, and to get compensation for life-altering injuries and significant wage loss.
Lil Scrappy tells us he has no recollection of falling asleep, but admits he might have overdone it by driving too much in one day.
We broke the story … police say Scrappy won’t face criminal charges for the accident.
His friendship with Ca$ino, on the other hand, might be tried in court.
Lil Scrappy’s Passenger In Car Accident Lawyer’s Up
If you’re unaware, Lil Scrappy was involved in a serious car accident a couple weeks ago when he fell asleep behind the wheel and crashed into a utility pole on a highway in Miami.
Scrappy & his buddy who was riding with him, Casino Roulette, are lucky to be alive after both suffering serious injuries and having been hospitalized for a few days.
Scrappy got the least of the injuries as he suffered a broken foot & probably a concussion, but his homie riding with him got the worst of it.
Having spent 3 days in the ICU, Casino suffered broken ribs, concussion, bruised lungs, liver and kidneys, and two major surgeries to repair his ruptured large intestine.
TMZ reports that Casino’s attorney, Brett L. Schlacter, told them his client sustained life-altering injuries and is “Lucky to be alive.” He feels Scrappy was negligent and reckless when he fell asleep at the wheel, and should be accountable.
This report ironically comes just hours after Scrappy came out and said that he drove 11 hours during the day and through 3 different states all prior to falling asleep behind the wheel the night of his accident.
Scrappy has yet to comment or respond to this news of the lawsuit so who knows if this will ultimately hurt or ruin their friendship, but I’m sure he’ll speak soon.
