According to a state official, Halle Berry’s recent accident while on the set of her latest film will not require further investigation.
Berry sustained a head injury while on set for the new movie, “The Hive.” However, authorities say that the accident wasn’t severe enough to warrant a workplace safety investigation.
“The incident was not reported to Cal/OSHA and was not required to be reported,” said Peter Melton, agency spokesman. “She was released from the hospital quickly, so we will not be investigating.”
Berry fell and hit her head Tuesday night while filming a fight sequence for the film. She was taken to an area hospital as a precaution and later released.
The reason why the accident will not be reported is due to the fact that Cal/OSHA only investigates workplace accidents that are caused by unsafe practices, which have the potential to lead to other accidents.
Berry has also been injured on the set of other films, most recently breaking her foot while filming “Cloud Atlas” last year.
While Berry’s case may not have been documented as a workplace injury, many other accidents that do happen at work can be. Victims often refuse to take steps further and file a report, leading them to miss out on thousands or even millions of dollars that could have been theirs. If you have been injured in a workplace accident or know someone who has, turn to an accident lawyer immediately for help.
