Here's What An Attorney Thinks About Reggie Bush's Case Against St. Louis


Last week, San Fransisco 49ers running back Reggie Bush announced he was planning on suing the city of St. Louis for gross negligence following a season-ending MCL tear he suffered in a game against the Rams in Week 8 of the NFL season.

Bush is looking at suing the city because his injury occurred at the St. Louis-owned Edward Jones Dome, the home of the Rams, and because the injury didn't have as much to do with football as it did a ring of exposed concrete that surrounds the Rams' home field.

The concrete track area, where Bush slipped, comes up very quickly once a player runs out of bounds, which is why the Rams have reportedly expressed a desire to fix the situation.

St. Louis officials have yet to actually solve the problem, however, which is why Bush is considering taking legal action.

Elite Daily spoke to an attorney to see how Bush's hypothetical case stacks up against the city of St. Louis.

Zachary Levy, 26, an attorney based in Northern New Jersey, says,

So, it appears the burning question isn't whether or not Reggie Bush has an actual case, it's whether or not he can actually win.

Mr. Levy continues,

Mr. Levy addresses this fact in his assessment of Bush's potential case. He tells Elite Daily,

It appears Bush's case is largely contingent on the fact this isn't the first time this type of injury has occurred at the Rams' stadium.

And while Bush and McCown were injured recently, there could be additional incidents of injury that surface if Bush follows through with his suit.

Mr. Levy adds,

An important caveat to Bush's case, should he decide to pursue it, is the precedent it could set for injuries suffered by NFL players across the country.

Mr. Levy was quick to caution and assess this notion, saying,

It remains to be seen if Reggie Bush will follow through with his threat to sue the city of St. Louis for gross negligence.

But keep in mind, he's 30 now.

In other words, this season-ending injury could end up being a career-ending one, which might entice the running back to go all in.
