"As a result of the Incident, the Plaintiff badly cut the left side of her face," the suit states. "She wasrushed to hospital and received approximately 70 stitches. She has since undergone treatmentincluding laser treatment and silicone treatment, but over one year post-Incident, has been leftwith permanent scarring on the left side of her face (the "Injury"). It is unknown at this time ifany further treatment, including plastic surgery, would reduce the visual appearance of the Injury."

According to Hickson, the damage has been more than just physical. "It's been mass amounts of insecurity, conflicted, confused, hurt, angry, and sad that this was my last day on set and no precautions were taken," she told Deadline.

"I never worked so hard on a production in my life, and now it's a bittersweet way to end this piece of art that we worked so hard on," she told the website, "but unfortunately it would be too uncomfortable to attend. Emotionally uncomfortable for all.
