'Justified' Stuntwoman Sues

Show Wrecked My Body

... and My Marriage

EXCLUSIVE

0201-justified-article
A stuntwoman who was severely injured during an accident on the set of "Justified" is suing producers ... claiming they are responsible for her broken bones ... and her broken marriage.

TMZ has obtained a lawsuit filed by Lisa Hoyle -- who claims that during a stunt for the show in 2011, a vehicle on the set smashed into a parked car ... which ran over her ankle and sent her crashing into the ground.

Lisa claims she lost consciousness and suffered an open head fracture, soft-tissue injuries, bruising and lacerations.

In her suit, Lisa claims she was never informed the parked car was part of the stunt ... because the stunt coordinator held a meeting about the stunt while she was out getting a snack.

And if the injuries weren't bad enough, Lisa and her husband claim their "marital relations" deteriorated because of the accident ... and they separated as a result.

Both Lisa and her husband are seeking unspecified damages. So far, no comment from the "Justified" people.

Sounds more like it was her own fault that led to her injuries and relationship issues. It's really bad and unfortunate that it happened but you know the dangers of being a stunt person and you should have been there on set getting ready for the scene instead of out getting a snack knowing that you were shooting soon.

Sorry but you lost me when you blamed a broken ankle as the cause of your marriage problems. You are a stunt woman for Christ sake, I'd assume both you and your husband knew there were some risks for injury.. that's why they hire stunt people for stars no?? I'm sure the studios and the stunt company have fantastic insurance since the job is so high risk. Sounds like someone is just trying to make pay day.

Maybe you shouldn't go get a snack when someone is trying to hold a meeting about the stunt you are about to do. If you do miss it maybe try asking someone what you missed? Stunt people are paid very well because they risk their safety and lives. When an accident happens it is just part of the job.

You and your husband separated and both are seeking damages? Not to mention only one suffered from the accident. Looks like your separation brings you together for a paycheck.

Dirt bag losers. I hope they get nothing and have to pay the studio's legal defense.

Well it's nice to see you can't stay together because of a broken ankle, but when it's time to sue a company to get cash, you can count on each other to stick together (and to the same story) at least until the cash comes through. Now that's togetherness!
