Here’s at least one reason why it doesn’t always pay to be a bawse.
What’s insane about the entire situation is that the grammy award winning producer?wasn’t even involved in the accident!
A woman has filed documents naming Nash, as well as his company, among the defendants in a lawsuit over an accident she was involved in with one of his EMPLOYEES.
According to TMZ, a woman named Elaine Nowells has filed a suit in Georgia, claiming that in June 2012,?Patrick Thrall,?one of The-Dream’s record label employees, ran a red light at a 4-way intersection and t-boned her vehicle.
Nowells claims the accident was so brutal, the car was knocked on its side and slid down the street.
Nowells claims she broke her back in the accident and suffered mental and physical pain due to “the shock, fright and terror she experienced.” She claims she suffered permanent injuries and says her medical expenses are through the roof.
In her suit, Nowells claims the accident was all Thrall’s fault … because she says Thrall was distracted by his GPS at the time.
Nowells filed her suit against Thrall … but added The Dream and his company as defendants as well. She alleges that since Thrall was on-duty at the time, they can all be held financially responsible.
The Dream responded to the lawsuit via email, stating:
Pat Thrall Is NOT an EMPLOYEE of Radiokilla Records, IDJ, or any of its affiliate companies.
He is an independent contractor (engineer) who was on the way to his hotel when the accident occurred. We are sorry to hear about her injuries and we hope she gets better.
We are almost certain that her attorneys put pressure on her to file a lawsuit. Unfortunately, that’s the NEW American Dream. Can’t win in life, sue someone who can.
But he’s right though…. they always go after the big dogs.
Should The-Dream (or his company) be financially responsible for an automobile accident of an “independent contractor”?
