Attorney Charles Tony Piccuta Quoted in Article About Monterey County Quadriplegic Lawsuit
On March 10, 2016, Piccuta Law Group attorney, Charles Tony Piccuta, was quoted in an article published by the Monterey County Weekly newspaper. The article was reporting on a Monterey County lawsuit where the Plaintiff was suing for injuries that left him a quadriplegic. Those injuries stemmed from his participation in a June 6, 2015 Spartan race. A Spartan race, for those who don’t know, is best described as a military style obstacle course meets mud run.
The Plaintiff bringing the lawsuit is a 25 year old who suffered two fractured vertebrae in his neck after he dove into a shallow muddy pool and struck his head. The lawsuit asserts claims for gross negligence, negligent hiring and dangerous condition of public property. The lawsuit names Spartan Race, Reebok, NBC Universal and Monterey County as defendants.
Piccuta was quoted for two reasons. First, because he actually participated in the June Spartan race during which the plaintiff was injured. Second, because he is a practicing personal injury attorney in Monterey County. The article quoted Piccuta as follows:
“Spartan Races are for the general masses, for weekend warriors. The race should take greater caution,” says Charles “Tony” Piccuta, who participated in the Spartan Race at Toro Park the day Chapman was injured. Piccuta is a personal injury lawyer based in Monterey, but did not comment on the specifics of the case. “There’s no instruction on how to tackle obstacles. I can see why someone approaching a body of water would think they could just dive into it.”
