*Rosie Perez is in a physical mess and she wants people to pay for the state that she is in. Specifically, Perez wants the production company behind Law & Order: SVU to pay. The veteran dancer and actress is taking legal action against Northern Entertainment Productions and DDF Films are accused of “recklessly and carelessly failing
to provide skilled performers or experienced stunt personnel.”
The lawsuit Perez filed claims that she suffered injuries during a staged fight scene between Perez and another actress two years ago. Perez claims one move caused her neck to become hemiated. After that injury, the actress
underwent a discectomy to repair the damage. The lawsuit, seeks unspecified damages from the production company.
Perez’s attorney, Brian O’ Dwyer, told the New York Post, “This is a case of a woman being severely injured because someone wasn’t taking care of the people who work for them.” He added, “We’re going to make them pay.”
