The producers of the latest Resident Evil installment, The Final Chapter, are facing a graphic lawsuit from a stunt performer who suffered "horrific" injuries as the result of an on-set motorcycle crash.
Olivia Jackson, who performed stunts for Milla Jovovich's character, Alice, says the September 2015 crash was the result of producers "elevating financial considerations over safety.".
She also suffered other "catastrophic" injuries, her left arm had to be amputated and she was put into a medically induced coma, according to the complaint.
She says producers had misled her into believing that their insurance would cover any injuries sustained during filming and resulting losses, but it only paid out $33,000.
"She had already secured the role of stunt double for a leading cast member in Wonder Woman, and didn't need the work.".
Now Jackson says she'll never be able to work in her chosen profession again, according to her complaint.
Jackson claims while she was in the coma, her husband was assured the producers would pay for her medical care and rehabilitation, but they've since withdrawn the offer. »
