It Looked Great On-Screen...But Was Nearly Deadly Off-Screen

As fans of the 80s/90s, we're very much looking forward to seeing the new Netflix biopic of Motley Crue, "The Dirt". In our looking at reviews of the movie, we saw that throughout the fun of making the movie, an employee suffered near life-threatening injuries after an on-the-set accident.

A rigger for the film says that the movie producers were liable for the injuries he suffered as they did not have proper safety precautions throughout the movie set. While the worker was moving a metal pole, it made contact with an electrical line, and suffered near-fatal injuries.

What safety measures were in place to ensure an accident like this could not happen...or did the employer simply, again, "hope for the best". On job sites where there are so many moving pieces, it's imperative that safety measures are heightened...and enforced! 

This sounds like an absolutely terrible injury, and one that will affect the employee for the rest of his life. Due to his injury, he may even have future employee opportunities affected. 

When figuring out the rightful compensation, it is important to account for all these factors. Your employer will NOT care about how this injury might affect you in the future...they only care about the now, and even then, they will try to short-change you, and hope you accept a settlement far less than what you're rightfully entitled to.
