"Despite the fact that cast and crew members were in the area and many crew members were moving equipment, none of the 'Sleepy Hollow' defendants, or their agents, representatives, 10 contractors, or employees, properly closed the portion of the set where Ms. Cottrill and other members of the crew were working," the suit says. "Despite the fact that the cast and crew members were moving about, the 'Sleepy Hollow' defendants, or their agents, representatives, contractors, or employees, failed to take reasonable, minimum safety precautions."
As a result, the lawsuit claims, Cottrill was hit by a truck "on a road that should have been closed and appeared to be closed." Cottrill’s leg and ankle were broken and her shoulder was injured, the suit says. She's had multiple surgeries and procedures since then.
Cottrill seeks a jury trial, attorneys' fees, costs and expenses, damages "including but not limited to past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and all other elements of damages allowed under the laws of the State of Georgia," in addition to punitive damages that "should be imposed in an amount sufficient to penalize the defendants and to deter such willful, wanton, and reckless conduct in the future," the suit says.
"Sleepy Hollow," which filmed its first two seasons in North Carolina before moving to Georgia,
