Eckerman is now requesting $730,000 in damages from Bobby Brown, Pat Houston and the 22-year-old’s conservator Bedelia Hargrove.
Bobbi Kristina Brown has been sued by a 42-year-old motorist named, Russell Eckerman.
According to the New York Daily News, Eckerman filed a lawsuit against Brown with the Fulton County Supreme Court Friday, July 3 just over a week after the R&B heiress was moved to a hospice care facility to spend her last days.
In the suit, Eckerman claims that Brown lost control of her vehicle after speeding and tailgating. Her 2005 Jeep Liberty spun out into oncoming traffic and struck Eckerman’s Ford Taurus. He says that incident left him in critical condition.
An eye witness tells the news outlet that the crash left Eckerman without a pulse and bleeding from his head. He was transported to North Fulton Hospital where he was revived and remained in critical condition for several days.
Another witness, Osse Lessage, told reporters that Brown rushed to Eckerman’s vehicle after the crash to see if he was okay. ''She was running and screaming, 'Oh my gosh,''' Lessage said at the time. ''My brother-in-law was there (saying) 'calm down, calm down.'''
Ford Motor Company is also listed as a defendant in the case. According to Eckerman, medical expenses stemming from the accident exceed the $730,000 that he is demanding from Brown’s estate.
