Alisha Brennon will file suit in the wrongful death of Christina Santiago, her fiancé who was killed in the Indiana State Fair stage collapse Aug. 13, her attorney confirmed.

Richard N. Rosenberg, Brennon's attorney, said that Brennon will seek "a substantial amount of money" for her own injuries as well as the death of Santiago.

Brennon sustained multiple fractures to her face and ribs, and broke her leg in the accident that left seven dead and dozens wounded. She is recovering in Chicago, according to Rosenberg.

"She is going to have a difficult time," he said.
