Hulk Hogan Sues Lawyers For Billing Him Over $1 Million For Son Nick Bollea’s Car Accident
Former wrestler Hulk Hogan has filed a lawsuit against his former lawyers for billing him over $1 million for services that Hogan says should have been free. Read more on this story below.
Hogan is mad at Zuckerman Spaeder representatives for how they handled his son Nick Bollea’s 2007 car crash, which resulted in passenger John Graziano’s severe brain damage.
Hogan claims executives at the law firm were contacted by experts at his car insurance company, Progressive, who offered to provide Hogan with legal representation for free.
In the court documents filed on Monday in Florida, Hogan alleges Zuckerman Spaeder exes knew about the Progressive offer for 17 months which resulted in costing him “in excess of one million dollars” in legal fees.
But by the time Hulk heard of the Progressive offer, his policy holders had “terminated the relationship” and refused to cover the majority of his legal fees.
Hogan’s son, Nick Bollea, served 166 days of an eight-month prison sentence last year for his part in the high speed collision. Graziano was finally released from a Florida hospital last week.
