Rosie Perez has filed a suit against the producers of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for an injury she alleges was inflicted on the set of a 2009 episode, according to CBS News. The actress claims that she suffered a herniated disc after an extra forcefully shook her during a scene where she was leaning through the window of a car. She subsequently underwent two surgeries, and her lawyer told the New York Daily News, “She’s still suffering severe pain, numbness of the arms, and she’ll never be the same despite the surgery.”

A spokesperson for the NBC show declined to comment on the suit.
