The extra in the Transformers 3 movie that was injured during filming reached a settlement with Paramount Pictures for $18.5 million. If you have been injured, a Las Vegas injury lawyer can help you as well.
Gabriela Cedillo, the 26-year-old extra in the movie, was injured after she was hit in the head by a piece of flying metal during a stunt sequence that was filmed in 2010. An investigation later found a failed weld connecting a car to a cable may have been the cause. The negligence lawsuit brought by Cedillo’s family alleged that Paramount was negligent through faulty welding and allowing extras to be too close to the stunt.
Cedillo has brain damage because of the accident, and her attorney said she needs constant care for the rest of her life. This settlement will help provide the payments for her care. If you have been injured, contact a lawyer in Las Vegas to get the money you need.
