    All things surrounding the Resident Evil franchise have had a rough go of it as of late, starting with fans' negative reception to Project Resistance. To add fuel to the fire, Olivia Jackson, stunt performer for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, is now suing the film's producers for misrepresentation and breach of contract due to an injurious incident that occurred during the production of the film, leaving her in a medically-induced coma.

    In 2016, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter was released to mostly negative reviews. While the upcoming Resident Evil movie is getting back to the game series' roots, allegedly, the previous film series had been poorly received as a whole, and it appears that the movies may have been affected by some behind-the-scenes instances.

    Jackson claims that she is suing the producers for paying close attention to "financial considerations over safety." Allegedly, Jackson incurred the injury during a motorcycle scene that she illustrates was "dangerous and technically complex" and added that the scene was performed in "adverse weather." Ultimately, Jackson hit an obstructive camera crane, with the camera "slicing through the bone of her forearm and tearing the flesh off her cheek," which ended up exposing her teeth. Additional injuries resulted in the amputation of her left arm.

    That's lawyer talk. Your lawyer speaks for you. Obviously she is in no condition to ask for this, but the lawyer should in theory work for her no matter what. I am sure you know that already.
