According to TMZ, Hart has hired an attorney and will may filing a case against the company that customized his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, the vehicle that crashed during Labor Day Weekend which resulted in his back injury.
Hart’s lawsuit hinges on the fact that Speedkore was an expert and did not advise him against customizing his vehicle without installing a safety harness.
Hart was a passenger during the accident which also injured his friend, Jared Black who was driving. A third passenger, Black’s girlfriend suffered minor injuries.

Last week, a woman who was caught with Hart in an explicit video in 2017 sued. The woman, Montia Sabbag accused the actor and his friend, J.T. Jackson of conspiring to film their encounter to gain mileage for their comedy tour.
Hart was released from the hospital 10 days after the crash and after undergoing an operation to repair his spine which obtained three fractures. He was transferred to a rehab facility where he underwent physical therapy.
As of last week, the actor was back home where his road to recovery continues. It may prove to be a bumpy road with these lawsuits keeping him occupied. Not to mention, an unrelated lawsuit that emerged also after the accident.
Last week, a woman who was caught with Hart in an explicit video in 2017 sued him for $60 million. The woman, Montia Sabbag accused the actor and his friend, J.T. Jackson of conspiring to film their encounter to gain mileage for their comedy tour.
Hart previously denied knowing that they were being filmed which placed the blame solely on Jackson who was arrested for trying to extort money from Hart to keep the tape from leaking. But Sabbag refused to believe Hart was innocent so she filed a new case involving him in the conspiracy.
It will definitely be a bumpy road to recovery for Hart with these lawsuits keeping him occupied.
