TMZ reports that Corin Nemec (Parker Lewis Can't Lose) is suing the filmmakers of B-movie Rise of the Dinosaurs after a boating accident that hurt his leg, giving him permanent injuries.
The accident happened in January in Belize. Nemec was on a boat going to the set of the movie, when it slammed into a submerged barge. Nemec said the crashed threw him into the side of the boat and broke his femur in three places. He lost a lot of blood and needed emergency surgery (including blood transfusions) to save his life.
He has filed a lawsuit, claiming the filmmakers were negligent in hiring the boat operator who drove recklessly. He also claims they didn't have worker's comp insurance, which is required. Nemec says he suffered permanent injures and is still receiving treatment six months later. He wants unspecified damages that are greater than $25,000.
