Do you remember the '90s sitcom Parker Lewis Can't Lose?
Well, it turns out he CAN — Corin Nemec is now suing some filmmakers because he feels they're responsible for the boating accident that shattered his leg! The injuries are pret-ty awful, and the ramifications are apparently permanent!
The tale is as old as time: the star (Nemec) is riding on board a boat to the set of B-horror movie — this one was Rise Of The Dinosaurs — when it hits a submerged barge. You know how it goes. Because of such a violent stop, Corin broke his femur in THREE PLACES, lost a lot of blood, and had emergency surgery!
He even needed blood transfusions to keep him alive!
He's now suing, saying the filmmakers were negligent in hiring an operator who drove the boat recklessly… AND they weren't even carrying required worker's comp insurance! That's a HUGE no-no!
He's still being treated six months later, and he's going after unspecified damages, exceeding $25,000!
This sucks and we hope he's okay, but we also hope it's a wake-up call to him to not join movies called things like Rise Of The Dinosaurs again! LOLz!
