Susan Bernecker, the mother of the stuntman who died of a traumatic head injury after a fall gone wrong on the set of The Walking Dead in July, has hired Atlanta attorney Jeffrey R. Harris to explore a lawsuit. He is the lawyer Richard and Elizabeth Jones hired for their wrongful-death lawsuit against CSX and others after their daughter, Sarah, was killed on the set of Midnight Rider.
A employee with the firm confirmed to Deadline that Bernecker had hired them to investigate the situation. Word of the hiring first was reported by the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.
Harris won an $11.2M judgment against CSX for the Jones family.
