AceShowbiz - An assistant director who was injured in an accident on the set of 2015 James Bond movie "Spectre" has settled a High Court compensation claim.
Terry Madden's legs were crushed after a driver lost control of a Range Rover during filming in Austria, and he sued the producers at Eon Productions and B24 for damages, claiming the accident had ended his "successful and celebrated" career.
But, on Wednesday (January 22), lawyers for both parties assured Judge Karen Walden-Smith a confidential settlement had been agreed.
Madden was working as a second unit assistant director on "Spectre" when the accident took place in the Austrian Alps.
"At the end of one of the shots, the vehicle skidded out of control and hit Mr Madden, pinning him against a camera rostrum and crushing his legs," the plaintiff's lawyer explained. "He was airlifted to hospital in Austria and subsequently repatriated to the U.K. by air ambulance."
