Stunt actress Olivia Jackson has won the legal case levelled against the producers of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, after an appalling filming accident left her with life-changing injuries (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Standing in for Milla Jovovich, Jackson was riding a motorcycle at high speed when she crashed into a crane-mounted camera vehicle driving in the opposite direction. The accident caused a twisted spine, paralysis of the top left quarter of her body including her neck, a dislocated shoulder, a severed thumb, punctured lungs, and broken ribs. When she awoke from her coma, her arm had been amputated above the elbow, and she still contends with permanent nerve damage and facial scarring.
