The Hangover 2 Stunt Double Claims Accident Caused Brain Injuries

By Ross Jurewitz on September 12, 2011

Hangover 2 Accident Stuntman Scott McLean‚ the stunt double for Ed Helms in The Hangover 2, is suing Warner Bros for an undisclosed amount for injuries he sustained during a high-speed stunt-gone-wrong during the filming last year in Bangkok‚ Thailand. McLean filed a lawsuit in California federal court on Tuesday‚ August 30th.

The stuntman claimed he was hurt during a stunt where he had to lean out of the window of a moving truck. According to McLean‚ another car involved in the stunt skidded out and crashed‚ resulting in a major collision. This was due to a last-minute change in timing by the stunt‚ which was the cause of the car accident.

McLean’s reps say that he suffered permanent brain and physical injuries‚ including ongoing seizures‚ speech impediments‚ physical impediments‚ and brain trauma.

A representative for Warner Bros. has responded by saying that the company is very saddened by the accident and has been actively working with McLean and his family throughout his treatment and recovery from the head injuries he sustained on set.
