Lawyer for man suing Hernandez: Client left to die

Aaron Hernandez AP

The mountain of trouble for Aaron Hernandez only continues to grow.

The lawyer for the man who is suing Hernandez for shooting him in the face said Friday that he thinks Hernandez left Alexander Bradley bleeding and alone in an industrial park for a reason.

I think he was left there because they thought he would be dead,” attorney David Jaroslawicz told Lindsay Jones of USA Today.

The suit on behalf of Bradley was initially filed June 13, four days before the murdered body of Odin Lloyd was found in an industrial park near Hernandez’s home. Hernandez has since been charged with that murder and investigated in a double murder in 2012.

Bradley lost his right eye, and suffered loss of some use of his right arm and hand, according to the lawsuit.

“You can’t make this stuff up. When I filed this simple lawsuit for Mr. Bradley’s injuries, the last thing I expected was they would find a dead body near his house and he’d be under investigation to two other dead bodies,” Jaroslawicz said. “That’s not what I expected when we filed our simple lawsuit.”

A Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman also said there’s chance criminal proceedings against Hernandez could begin again, but only if Bradley cooperates. The case was initially listed as inactive when Bradley refused to go beyond a vague description of “black and Hispanic” men who shot him.

    ———————————————————
    THEY ……. ???????

    Interesting. I thought the original complaint was that ONE person shot him?

    I’d have a far easier time believing this victim, if he’d simply told the cops WHO shot him, when he was shot. Absent a criminal complaint, this looks to be a blatant money grab.

    Not that I doubt Hernandez and the fellas did it ;)

    How many murders must once commit to be considered a serial killer? This guy is the new Richard Ramirez Night Stalker

  4. 12thmanseattle says: Jun 28, 2013 3:01 PM

    I think I speak for everybody when I say that at this point there’s zero doubt Hernandez isn’t as guilty as they get.. Probably for all 4 people shot.. He really is a special kind of stupid

  5. FinFan68 says: Jun 28, 2013 3:04 PM

    It seems Hernandez MO was to shoot people he knows and then dump them in an industrial park to die…except for the drive-by he may have been involved with

  6. crownofthehelmet says: Jun 28, 2013 3:04 PM

    You know you’re having a rough patch when shooting someone in the face is the least of your worries.

  7. stonedwhitetrash says: Jun 28, 2013 3:04 PM

    Each time he got away with a crime the more bold he became with the next one
    “He went back Jack and did it again and again”

  8. Rick Spielman is a Magician says: Jun 28, 2013 3:06 PM

    So that’s why he shot Lloyd multiple times. He learned from his mistake the last time he took someone to an industrial park to kill him.

  9. remyje says: Jun 28, 2013 3:08 PM

    I bet he feels like an idiot for waiting until now to try and sue him….

  10. grillmarks says: Jun 28, 2013 3:08 PM

    This guy really likes leaving bodies in industrial parks.

  11. kane337 says: Jun 28, 2013 3:11 PM

    I’m not believing Bradley. Why didn’t he file a police report if someone shot him in the face? Why has it taken about a year to file this $100,000 law suit? Money grab.

  12. rayburns says: Jun 28, 2013 3:12 PM

    Based on what we’re learning about Hernandez and the people that he hung with, if I was this guy, I’d have been real careful about making any sort of statement against Hernandez, too. He’d already been shot and left for dead; that’s a powerful incentive for believing that if he said anything to the police, his next trip to the industrial park would have ended up much worse.

  13. peytonwantsaflag says: Jun 28, 2013 3:12 PM

    Sounds like to me Hernandez spent a little too much time playing Grand Theft Auto. Not really sure how murder works in the real world.

  14. liontuss says: Jun 28, 2013 3:13 PM

    Hernandez could have saved a few travel bucks by building his mansion smack dab in the middle of an industrial park. Kinda like golfers build homes on golf courses, except for all the blood, dead bodies and shell casings. Oh, and gang colors too. Other than that, same basic idea. Except for the tats and gang signs. Kind of.

  15. timocracy13 says: Jun 28, 2013 3:13 PM

    I’m well aware that when it rains it pours, but, if all of this is true about Hernandez, how the hell was the lid kept on it for so long? Whomever Hernandez had as publicist, you’ve officially become the greatest PR person of all time.

  16. makenobones says: Jun 28, 2013 3:14 PM

    Industrial parks and rental cars seem to be a recurring theme. Along with utter stupidity.

  17. dankil13 says: Jun 28, 2013 3:15 PM

    So this guy refused to cooperate with authorities to press criminal charges, but has no issue filing a civil suit? Only in the ‘hood!

  18. bspn2 says: Jun 28, 2013 3:16 PM

    Hernandez really seems to enjoy the following:
    1. Murdering people
    2. Renting automobiles
    3. Frequenting industrial parks

  19. craniator says: Jun 28, 2013 3:18 PM

    He’s gonna go in a tight end and come out a “wide receiver”.

    Question: How many murders has he committed that we DON’T know about???

    Serial killer, for real.

  22. barbeaux says: Jun 28, 2013 3:19 PM

    Serial killers are more cunning, no? This guy just has anger issues it seems.

  23. chillyball says: Jun 28, 2013 3:20 PM

    I can’t wait to read this guy’s psychological evaluation.

  24. gacoltfan says: Jun 28, 2013 3:21 PM

    This civil suit should be thrown out. If they guy refused to cooperate with the criminal investigation, he shouldn’t be allowed to bring a civil suit. Can’t have it both ways. I’m not defending AH in any way, I hope he spends the rest of his miserable life in jail. Maybe and probably if this guy would have cooperated from the beginning there would be one less murdered individual right now.

  25. ochocinco92 says: Jun 28, 2013 3:22 PM

    I think that the double murder should cancel out the Lloyd murder. It’s only logical. Agree, Pats fans?

  26. rocketcrab says: Jun 28, 2013 3:23 PM

    Like a lot of people, I’ve been wondering this since the story broke – suing for being shot in the face??? Wasn’t this reported to the police, wherever it happened? I don’t know about you, but if someone shoots me in the face, not first numbers I dial are 9-1-1, not my lawyer’s office.

  27. steelcurtainn says: Jun 28, 2013 3:24 PM

    Hernandez and the boys have been on a killing rampage. Anybody else we should know about?

  28. fanofevilempire says: Jun 28, 2013 3:25 PM

    Alexander Bradley is a lucky guy, so was the survivor of the drive by, Aaron and his buddies
    usually finish you off.

  29. jayniner says: Jun 28, 2013 3:27 PM

    So is anyone else perplexed with the fact that this went straight to a civil suit with no criminal charges or police involvement against Hernandez at the time this happened?

  30. pongonfl says: Jun 28, 2013 3:29 PM

    interesting how so many comments are about how stupid Hernandez has to be to do these things, not how evil he has to be.

  31. relggigeht says: Jun 28, 2013 3:30 PM

    I wonder if Tom Brady was afraid of this guy all along:)

  32. ravenmuscle says: Jun 28, 2013 3:32 PM

    I guess Hernandez learned from shooting the guy in the face that next time you pump FIVE shots into a guy and make SURE he doesn’t live to talk about it.

  33. jda129 says: Jun 28, 2013 3:33 PM

    AH’s defense attorney needs to find a great concussion doctor and try to blame this behavior on concussions over the years….

  35. bookofelisha10 says: Jun 28, 2013 3:34 PM

    the breaking news each hour on this guy is ridicilous. each time its gets more and more crazier.

    hes the smartest dumb criminal ever. you call the wolf. destroy camera/cell.. but forgot you sent all these txts out, when out in open sight with the murder weapon, killed the guy in your rental and left gum???

  36. lalnh says: Jun 28, 2013 3:35 PM

    Patriots just announced that people can bring their Hernandez jersey’s to the pro shop on July 6 & 7 and switch it out for another jersey – free of charge.

  37. crownofthehelmet says: Jun 28, 2013 3:35 PM

    @pongonfl, evil is a given, no need to comment on that. Being this stupid in your evil ways is a hot topic.

  38. garyhd01 says: Jun 28, 2013 3:36 PM

    im guessing “they were both there and the only recognizable man was hernandez and if it was filed b4 the death of Lloyd it is an honest lawsuit its my hope that hernandez account is frozen so the lawyers cant scoop up all his money before this guy gets a chance to get some of it I don’t begrudge the lawyers but this guy lost an eye and partial use of an arm make sure if he wins there is money left for him at least freeze the amount of the lawsuit

  39. rc33 says: Jun 28, 2013 3:37 PM

    I genuinely believe its a horse race as to who’s the lower form of life..
    — Hernandez

    the last person im going to defend is A.h…

    but its either perfect timing or well planned to wait for A.H to sign his massive contract THEN sue him.. we didnt hear a word about this before, and he rly did get shot my A.H and mentioned it to anyone it would of been everywhere…idk how much i believe this guys intentions.

  42. damnsureis says: Jun 28, 2013 3:43 PM

    I’m no legal expert but when a man suing you because you shot him in the face is the least of your worries, storm clouds are on the horizon.

  43. dublindemonszfl says: Jun 28, 2013 3:43 PM

    The shot guy didn’t go to the cops, or the hospitol, unless those hospitols don’t have to report a shooting……… While I’d like to see AH the superior dumbass pay for this as well. Since he didn’t report it should thrown out. Another superior dumbass. Gang bangers, must have an IQ of 29 or worse to be a member.

  44. tyler4richardson says: Jun 28, 2013 3:46 PM

    Is Alexander Bradley eligible for the concussion lawsuit?

  45. notoriousjebus says: Jun 28, 2013 3:46 PM

    This makes no sense to me. Now I am not a lawyer, and I have never shot anyone nor have i ever been shot. But I am under the impression that when you go to the hospital with a gun shot wound they are required to notify the police.

    So wouldn’t the hospital call the cops. Cops ask this guy who shot you in the face, guy says Hernandez, and the case at least goes to the grand jury?

    The only thing I can imagine is the guy told the cops he didn’t know who shot him. But then I don’t know how he could turn around and sue Hernandez.

  46. nemobhax says: Jun 28, 2013 3:48 PM

    Did he just kill people for fun?

    This whole situation is scary as hell considering that Hernandez is a multi-millionaire living in a perfect neighborhood.

    He had no *financial* reason to kill, unlike 99% of other criminals, and that’s insanely frightening.

    Because if he wasn’t killing for money, he was killing for… sport?

  47. crownofthehelmet says: Jun 28, 2013 3:56 PM

    @garyhd01, are you really so lazy that you can’t use some simple punctuation. Or is this some trendy, hipster-dufus way of posting. This isn’t twitter, in case you didn’t know. People here actually like to read coherent thoughts and complete sentences.

  48. bighurt228 says: Jun 28, 2013 3:58 PM

    Aaron was busy……maybe if he worked out more he wouldn’t have spent sooo much time in the trainers room.

  49. wehavebush says: Jun 28, 2013 4:04 PM

    What the hell is it with this guys and industrial parks?

  50. tjacks7 says: Jun 28, 2013 4:07 PM

    I’d have a far easier time believing this victim, if he’d simply told the cops WHO shot him, when he was shot. Absent a criminal complaint, this looks to be a blatant money grab.

    ———

    If this is a “blatant money grab” the victim must be able to see the future considering he filed a lawsuit against Hernandez days BEFORE Hernandez allegedly killed another man.

  51. threefeetaway says: Jun 28, 2013 4:07 PM

    Next charge will be insider trading because he told people he was going to stop renting cars so the stock price would plummet and they all sold their shares…

  52. hrmlss says: Jun 28, 2013 4:10 PM

    He probably has a few dogs and takes loving care of them. But beats his girlfriend, and mass murders his “friends”.

  53. cjspiller12 says: Jun 28, 2013 4:20 PM

    The case against Aaron Hernandez is growing so strong about the only thing he forgot to do was check in at the industrial park on Facebook.

  54. Kaz says: Jun 28, 2013 4:23 PM

    Well that’s a good thing (being left to die). His other victims wished they had that opportunity. Maybe they would have survived.

  55. realfootballfan says: Jun 28, 2013 4:57 PM

    chillyball,
    Someone reported last week that he aced it. More evidence to me that he’s a sociopath.

    It’s a blessing that he and his posse didn’t kill an opposing player who trash talked to him on the field or an unruly fan. This guy is strictly scum.

  58. granadafan says: Jun 28, 2013 5:15 PM

    Hernandez has a lot in common with Dick Cheney: shooting people in the face and being directly responsible for a lot of deaths.

  59. mayfieldroadboy says: Jun 28, 2013 5:27 PM

    The case was initially listed as inactive when Bradley refused to go beyond a vague description of “black and Hispanic” men who shot him.

    Shot by “black AND Hispanic MEN? Why is he suing only Hernandez…who and where are the other “black and Hispanic” man/men involved with Hernandez? Why did he withdraw his initial suit against Hernandez?

    These “black and Hispanic” men not only in Florida but in the northeast, both actors and victims, are all boiled together in one kettle of rotted fish.

  60. gizzmonic says: Jun 28, 2013 5:51 PM

    The patriots brought AH to Boston. Boston has 3 dead citizens. Do the patriots share some of the blame?

  61. redsoxchamp11 says: Jun 28, 2013 6:23 PM

    the NFL is to blame. he watched Gregg Williams video and took “kill tye head” literally and applied it to his life.

  62. natijim235 says: Jun 28, 2013 6:42 PM

    pats fans standing behind this d bag are probably same for slamming the bengals….guess what pats fans your team set a new barometer for criminals

  63. nflgiant says: Jun 28, 2013 6:44 PM

    This guy could have known about other murders AND thats why he did not want to tell what he knew to police.He was afraid AH and his gang would come back and finish the job.

  64. grapple167 says: Jun 28, 2013 6:45 PM

    But his mommy said he would be cleared of all charges! Remember!

  65. gizzmonic says: Jun 28, 2013 7:09 PM

    Even when it comes to crime. The Patriots have to do it bigger and better than the other 31 NFL teams.

  66. jerrygray721 says: Jun 28, 2013 7:16 PM

    Hey did anyone here see law abiding citizen? I wonder if there is a prison near by so A.H. can sneak in and out and kill people- oh forget it he cannot be nowhere near that smart

  67. orivar says: Jun 28, 2013 7:29 PM

    I don’t buy it, this seems like a money grab. Hernandez has a probe for murder and guy was shot after leaving a club Hernandez was previously at, it’s easy to have a cash grab lawsuit and say he did it with the whole murder situation.

    Just too many holes in all of this. I’ll wait and see.

  68. doggeatdogg says: Jun 28, 2013 7:35 PM

    I thought you were supposed to go through the criminal route first, then civil for damages. Supposedly AH shot this guy and drove his lifeless body to an alley behind a John Deere store. All the police has to do is match ballistic between Hernandez’s arsenal and the bullet extracted from Bradley’s. nflgiant is spot on about Bradley maybe having info on the 2012 murders, probably tried to blackmail AH. Miami PD is quiet. They need to re-open the UF shooting case. Did somebody die? Do we need the feds on this?? Lord, thank you AH is not a Hurricane. The press would have burned the school by now. 99 problems and AH is not one of them.

  69. 1historian says: Jun 28, 2013 7:46 PM

    I just wonder – what do you think this dude’s next door neighbor is thinking right now?

  70. qball59 says: Jun 28, 2013 8:05 PM

    why would you sue someone as wealthy as AH for a mere $100K for shooting you in the face, especially after claiming on the initial police report that black AND hispanic MEN did it? Answer: if someone other than AH actually shot you, and you know the guy doesn’t have as much money, then you sue AH instead for simply being there, knowing that he’ll cut the check just to make you shut up and go away…

  71. bunglesandbears says: Jun 28, 2013 8:14 PM

    Serial killer’s usually have some sick perverted motive for carrying out their crimes.

    Aaron Hernandez is an urban psychopath.

  72. deadunicorn says: Jun 28, 2013 8:32 PM

    I’m pretty sure he learned this crap from Kraft. What’s worse…..one mans life, or degrading the NFL and everything it stands for forever and ever. Kraft and BB are shocked??…lol, they are the true criminals.

    BTW..Brady fumbled

  73. herbsfunhouse says: Jun 28, 2013 9:15 PM

    Safe to file a suit now that all three are off the street.

  74. theuglitruth says: Jun 28, 2013 9:46 PM

    What a bunch of mis-guided knucklehead patriots fans….cheering his “innocence” at the court house. Pathetic!

    Even when it comes to crime. The Patriots have to do it bigger and better than the other 31 NFL teams.

    I feel AH is guilty of many serious crimes at this point too. But, it seems like a lot of readers are on here to poke fun/hate on, the Patriots. Most of these posters on here seem to be enjoying their sarcastic cheap shots against the Pats organization. I am a Pats fan since 1975 and hate this whole dark cloud he has cast over the teams name. But, why do so many think or hold the ownership to blame? Not picking on you gizz just wish the posters cared more about seeking the truth over hating on an entire organization. Punish the criminal not the Pats
