Extra In 'Transformers 3' Settles Lawsuit For On-Set Brain Injury

In 2010, Gabriella Cedillo was excited to be part of the blockbuster film, "Transformers 3." Although she was extra, she was in a role enviable to many aspiring young actresses. Now, Cedillo is a position that nobody envies: She suffers from irreversible brain damage and mentally functions at the level of a small child.

Her traumatic brain injury resulted from an on-set accident during the filming of the movie. She was inside a motor vehicle when a steel cable snapped and smashed through the windshield, striking her head. Cedillo underwent emergency brain surgery but will never return to her full mental capacity.

Cedillo recently settled her lawsuit against Paramount Pictures for $18.5 million dollars. While that figure seems impressive, her brain injury will necessitate expensive medical care for the rest of her life. Her family would gladly trade the sum for her restored health.

If you or a family member has suffered brain trauma, contact an experienced Ohio brain injury lawyer to discuss your options for legal recourse.
