Actress Rosie Perez has recently settled a personal injury lawsuit against the producers and executives of the hit television show Law and Order. Perez claims that she suffered serious neck and back injuries after being involved in an on set accident back in 2009. She claimed that she had to wear a brace after being violently shaken by an extra cast while taping. Her lawyers claimed that the show’s producers “recklessly and carelessly” failed to provide experienced extra’s for the scene.
In addition to a personal injury claim, Rosie Perez and her attorneys may have also brought an action for negligent retention and/or negligent hiring against the producers and executives of the TV show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for failing to hire experienced extras with adequate background and training. Ms. Perez is also known for her role in the movie Pineapple Express.
