Yesterday, the family of Gabriela Cedillo, filed a lawsuit against Paramount Pictures for an injury that she sustained on the set during a stunt that went wrong.
The paper work filed by Cedillo’s attorney Todd A. Smith, a Chicago car accident lawyer with Power Rogers and Smith, described that the accident involved a broken towing cable snapping through the car Cedillo was driving and hitting her in the head. On Tuesday Smth said that Cedillo is “unable to speak and is paralyzed on her left side… It looks like she has vision loss in the left eye, which is sewn shut because there’s a paralysis associated with that and they don’t want her eye to dry out.”
Paramount, which did not directly respond to the lawsuit stated that their “thoughts, prayers and best wishes are with Gabriela, her family and loved ones. The production will continue to provide all the help we can to Gabriela and her family during this difficult time.”
Smith is seeking money in excess of $50,000 for Cedillo.
