Celebrity wrestler Hulk Hogan is being sued by attorneys for the man who was critically injured in a crash involving Hogan's son.
John Graziano's attorneys filed suit Monday in Clearwater against Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea.
The suit says he and his estranged wife, Linda, are liable as the parents of 17-year-old Nick Bollea.
Graziano was a passenger in Nick Bollea's 1998 Toyota Supra when Bollea lost control and crashed into a tree on a downtown Clearwater Street August 26th.
Lawyers say the Iraq war veteran -- who wasn't wearing a seat belt -- was left in a semiconscious state and will require care for the rest of his life.
An attorney says millions of dollars will be sought.

And whose decision was it to ignore the law and refuse to wear a seat belt?
FYI, Hulk Hogan (Terry Bollea): Hard-core lefty.
Enough said... suit should be dismissed.
So, I guess a predatory lawsuit (in a very crooked county) is OK in that case, eh?
Incidentally, I'm not so sure he's such a "hard core lefty."
In any event, his family has been undergoing some real stress lately, according to the press. From what I understand he's not such a bad fellow. I've met his wife and I recall when his kids were just tots.
I make no judgements, I was just pointing out his ideological predeliction.
I have heard him spouting some of the same crazed rhetoric normally heard on left-wing radio and read on left-wing websites.
Unfortunately, Mr. Bollea is the “deep pockets” in this case, and is likely to get raped by the “justice” system.
Hogan endorsed Obama on Kimmel’s talk show.
Incidentally, some of that stress in his family was brought on by the fact that he was banging one of his daughter’s friends.
I've got a rope! Let's have a lynch-party for the non-seat belt wearer!

um i dont think the person who posted this said that this was ok because he was a lefty. think it was just an FYI since we are on a political site after all
Of course he did.
not to mention it has been said that he possibly provided alcohol to the boys while on the boat the afternoon before the accident.
In Oklahoma, you would not be allwed to bring up that the injured driver was not wearing a seat belt. We have a very strong plaintiff’s bar lobby. It is ridiculous.
Mighty convenient timing on the divorce.
Where did that come from? Are you talking about his underage daughter who has underage friends?
