If you are an extra or stunt man and are injured on a movie set, there will be an investigation by many law enforcement agencies, the movie studio itself, and any other associated agencies such as the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) who require an accounting as to when there are injuries on set.
In addition to incidents specific to filming sets (like those listed above), many other incidents are possible. These incidents can include slip and fall accidents, trip and fall accidents, falling object incidents, assault and battery incidents, sexual assault incidents, burn incidents, etc. These incidents can sometimes be associated with the unsafe conditions on the premises. In some cases, these incidents can even be associated with negligent hiring, negligent training, etc. Other potential incidents include defective product incidents, which are typically associated with the negligence of a product manufacturers (and sometimes the negligence of the directors, producers, stage crew, etc. who know that the product is defective in some way but fail to take any action).

If the harm that you suffered can be directly associated with the negligent actions of a party or entity, then you could have grounds to file a lawsuit. To be able to file a lawsuit, you must be able to prove that the incident and the harm that you suffered occurred as a direct result of the negligent actions of a party or entity. Depending on the incident, your right to sue might be based on the concept of premise liability – which states that property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe for all their guests. This might apply in the case of slip and fall, trip and fall, falling object incident, etc. If you were injured by a defective product, then you might have grounds to sue based on product liability – which states that product manufacturers have a duty to ensure that their products are safe to use. If you are ever unsure about your right to sue, it is important that you seek legal assistance with the experts at our law firm as soon as possible. Our lawyers are ready to provide you with the guidance that you need to understand your right to sue and take action against the liable party.
Determining liability, fault and whether such harm was assumed is important in deciding whether to bring a cause of action. Often times it can be that the harm was assumed by the injured party, however this may not always be the case. Additionally, simply because the harm was assumed does not bar recovery, but can reduce it. Our firm can help you make the right decision. We will review all elements of your claim and consider each case on differently. In certain circumstances a law suit may not be the best road to recovery, since it can alienate the harmed party for future employment and there may be other avenues to recover for your loss.
