Rosie Perez sues ‘Law & Order: SVU’ producers over injuries
Publié par Emily Christianson dans Los Angeles Times - Ministry of Gossip le 21/05/11.

Rosie Perez is suing the producers of “Law and Order: SVU” over injuries she allegedly suffered on set.

The "Special Victims Unit" guest star wants NBC to take responsibility for the herniated disc she claims she endured during the taping of a 2009 episode called “Hardwired.”

The lawsuit states that during filming, an extra "recklessly pulled, grabbed, yanked, wrenched and/or manhandled” her, CBS reports. Perez, 46, appeared as an upset mother who reaches into another car and starts choking the driver. A school crossing guard intervenes and that’s when the actress was allegedly injured.

"The thing to do was taking someone who knows what he's doing to make it look violent without being violent,” lawyer Brian O'Dwyer tells the New York Daily News. "This person was not a stunt man, he was just an extra."

He also claims she was pressured to continue taping, which may have exacerbated her injuries. "She's still suffering severe pain, numbness of the arms, and she'll never be the same despite the surgery.”

So far, Perez has already undergone two surgeries, one involving a spinal fusion when bone marrow from her pelvis was transplanted into her vertebrae.

With Rosie on the mend, O’Dwyer says the actress hasn’t been able to work for about a year and that damages will be “very substantial.” NBC has yet to respond to the lawsuit.
