Another On The Job Accident On Movie Set

South Carolina worker’s compensation lawyers found the following, interesting entertainment news. Just weeks after an extra sustained a critical brain injury on the set of the highly anticipated third installment of the Transformers series, a welder was seriously hurt while using a grinder. The welder worked on the special effects side of the action packed production and has filed a lawsuit against Paramount Pictures. Other companies are included in the suit, but were not named in the report by the Chicago Tribune.

Allegedly, the grinder spun out of control due to the control panel in a Chicago building used in filming that was “negligently wired” to support 220-volts. The welder’s lawsuit claims that he was not informed of this prior to his plugging in the 110-volt grinder.

With the help of an experienced on the job injury attorney the suit has been filed in the Cook County Circuit Court and is asking for an undisclosed amount of damages for, as the suit states, “severe and permanent damage to [the welder’s] arm.” The report does not mention how these two incidents have affected production of the film, possibly because Paramount declined commenting.
