BBC Top Gear: Because of his choice to leave BBC1’s Top Gear, Andrew Flintoff is now free to pursue legal action in the wake of his accident on the car show last year. After the car he was riding in overturned, the former England and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) cricket player who had broken ribs and facial injuries was taken to the hospital. This week, it was revealed that Freddie Flintoff, 45, would not be returning to host the current season of Top Gear and that the filming has been permanently halted.
A legal expert told the UK tabloid, The Sun: “If he decides to sue the makers of the show, BBC Studios, then it will probably be to compensate him for lost earnings and possibly any medical costs.”
“It’s unlikely to be done out of any resentment to the Beeb, as Freddie has become a hugely popular star through the shows he’s made with them, and has more shows in the pipeline.”
“He may even quickly reach a settlement that allows him to put this behind him and move on with his life and career.”

When Freddie was recovering from the injuries he sustained in the vintage sports car crash at Dunsfold Park Aerodrome in Surrey last December, The Sun reported that he was taking a break from his TV career.
While he thought about his future and whether he would return as one of the co-hosts of Top Gear alongside Paddy McGuinness, 49, and Chris Harris, 48, his loved ones begged him to think about taking a break.
He is still committed to producing both a second season of the BBC1 documentary Field of Dreams and a new programme for BBC2 dubbed “The Repair Shop for motors.”
