Gabriella Cedillo, The ‘Transformers 3‘ extra who was injured on the set of the movie is suing Paramount Pictures. Adolfo Romo, the victims brother, told RadarOnline.com that she is suing after becoming paralyzed on the left side of her body.
“We filed a case this morning in Chicago and made a request for a jury trial,” Todd A. Smith, the attorney for Cedillo told RadarOnline.com.
According to her attorney she is paralyzed on her left side, can’t speak and has partial loss of vision in her left eye. To prevent paralysis issues with her eye, doctors have chosen to sew it shut to keep the eye from drying out.
The lawsuit states that Cedillo is a “disabled person” because of the accident and that she “assumed no risk of injury in performing her duties as an extra on the Transformers 3 movie set.”
According to the suit procedural precautions were not followed and mechanical mistakes were missed:
“Failed to properly weld the metal bracket to the stunt car… Failed to provide adequate safety precautions… Allowed untrained extras to drive their own vehicles within close proximity to a violent stunt.”
