Chicago law firm to represent 7 of 8 acrobats injured in circus stunt

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Clifford Law Offices has been hired to represent seven circus acrobats hurt during a stunt in Rhode Island.

The Chicago-based law firm said some of the injured women will speak at a news conference in Boston on Tuesday.

Two of the injured performers have spinal cord injuries and may never walk again.

A total of eight acrobats were hurt during a hair-hanging stunt early last month.
