Injuries due to premises liability can happen to anyone and anywhere – almost always when least suspected. Such was the case during the Tony Awards in 2009 when rock singer Bret Michaels was struck on the head by a falling piece from the stage set. The incident happened after Michaels and his band, Poison, performed the 1980s hit song "Nothin' But A Good Time" with the "Rock of Ages" musical cast. He suffered a broken nose, split lip and trauma to the head. Later, in April 2010, Michaels suffered a near-fatal brain hemorrhage. Last year he sued the Tony Awards and CBS for damages. Michaels, a recent contestant on the TV show “Celebrity Apprentice,” settled the case earlier this year, according to news reports. Terms of the settlement were not released.
