Taylor Hickson is suing the company that produced Ghostland after a gruesome facial injury she incurred during filming that left her a scar.

Hickson then proceeded to do so and the glass shattered, according to the suit, causing her "head and upper body to fall through the door and shards of glass".

"Prior to the injury she was an up and coming actor with a bright future in the movie industry", the suit said. During one of her final days on set, she was engaged in an emotionally charged scene that forced her to pound on a glass door. But the director, Pascal Laugier, insisted she had to hammer the door harder.

According to the lawsuit, obtained by Deadline, she asked both the director and a producer if it was safe to continue banging on the glass, to which they replied in the affirmative.

In the lawsuit, Hickson claims the injury has left her with a loss of income for future projects.

Hickson, who also played Meghan Orlovsky in Deadpool, is certainly not letting Incident Productions easily get away for her facial injury that left a visible scar on the left side of her face.

Harvey said the accident has been hard on Hickson.

The star went on to note that the resulting scar has not only cost her work due to the time she was recovering, but left lasting insecurity and disfigurement that she believes will cost her more.

A grievance against the production company was filed shortly after the incident, said a spokesman for the Manitoba chapter of the performers' union ACTRA.

"When she performed in that scene, she should have been under a risk performance contract, she should have had an option to have a stunt performer in her place, and there should have been a stunt coordinator present". However, her lawyer told HuffPost that "much of the bruising and swelling" on her face was actually makeup or prosthetics from the shoot. "An accident like this is a very scary to a young up-and-coming actress, there's just no question about it".

Discussing the incident with Deadline, the actress recalled the moments soon after the mishap took place.

Until then, he said ACTRA's complaint has been put on hold: "We are all waiting for that report".

Hickson is the star of indie horror film, Ghostland. And it's extremely important that everyone - producers and unions - make sure that safety is in everybody's mind and is the most important thing.
