New York, NY (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
Actress Kristin Chenoweth was injured by falling lighting equipment while working on a Brooklyn soundstage, according to the New York Daily News (7/12/2012). Personal injury lawyers at The Perecman Firm understand she was hit by lighting equipment that was blown out of place by wind.
At the time of the workplace accident, Chenoweth was working on the set of the CBS drama “The Good Wife.”
“Safety should be the first concern of every crew member involved in any television shoot whether that person is a lighting technician, a director or a star,” said New York's David Perecman, a personal injury lawyer for over 30 years.
As New York personal injury attorney David Perecman understands, movie and television sets can be dangerous. Hot lights, cables and dolly track are just some of the film equipment that may create workplace dangers. Other dangers may be caused by filming that occurs in less than ideal conditions including summer heat, in old buildings and near busy streets at night.
“Actors and crew members can be hurt as a result of the recklessness or negligence or from an injury due to a freak on-set accident,” explained Perecman.
