This case involves the injury of a high-profile actor on the set of a movie being filmed in Los Angeles. Part of the set included a balcony of a house. The balcony had wooden balusters that were 3ft in height surrounding the entirety of the balcony area. While the actor was filming a scene, he leaned against the balcony and the balusters suddenly collapsed causing the actor to fall from a significant height. He suffered a traumatic brain injury from the impact as well as spinal injuries. As a result of his injuries, the actor was unable to continue working on the movie. A biomechanics expert was sought to calculate the force of impact and the extent of the physical and lasting damage caused to the actor.
