Posted on November 7, 2010Chicago, Illinois. Weeks following the tragic accident that resulted in an extra or stuntwoman suffering critical injuries during the filming of the "Transformers 3" movie, another employee was the victim of an unfortunate accident while on set. The injured individual, a welder who worked on special effects for the production, filed a lawsuit alleging that he was seriously hurt after a grinder he tried to use spun out of control.
According to allegations in the complaint that was filed in Cook County, the plaintiff was caused to suffer "severe and permanent damage to his arm" after he turned on the piece of equipment. The injured employee claims that a temporary control panel in the building where he was working at the time of the incident was "negligently wired" to supply 220 volts, and that nobody warned him before he plugged in the 110-volt grinder.
An accident can take the form of a car crash, a building fire, or even an amusement park catastrophe, all of which can cause emotional trauma and physical damage. Most people associate accidents with broken bones and shaken nerves, but a traumatic and unexpected catastrophic accident can cause far more severe personal injury, such as brain damage or paralysis.
