Legal case brought against Star Wars company for Harrison Ford's injury.

Just when they thought The First Order was the most threatening thing to strike back since the Empire, the production company behind Star Wars has been hit with criminal charges from the Health and Safety Executive over Harrison Ford's leg injury on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015).

The company in question is Foodles Production (UK) Ltd, a legal subsidiary of Disney and formed to handle legal and financial issues such as this. The Health And Safety Executive has brought four criminal charges relating to the incident in June 2014 when a hydraulic metal door on the Millennium Falcon set in Pinewood fell on Ford's leg, breaking it. He was airlifted to hospital for surgery and has made a full recovery, but the HSE sees the production company as liable for not maintain proper level of protection for workers on the set.
