‘Days of Our Lives’ Set Decorator Says She Suffered ‘Traumatic Brain Injury’ in New Lawsuit

Like 400 pounds of lighting equipment landing on your head, these are the days of our lives.

A woman who says she was injured during a mishap on the set of “Days of Our Lives” has filed a lawsuit, stating that she suffered “traumatic brain injury” as a result of the alleged incident.

In her suit, filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Karla Bergstrom says she was working as a set decorator for “Days” in December 2015 when a 400-pound bar of stage lights came down on top of her while it was being lowered from the ceiling.

According to the suit, employees of defendant Goodnight & Co. — named as a defendant of the suit — “negligently failed to visualize the set area and whether it was free of persons as they attempted to lower” the bar.

The result, the suit says, was “injury, including traumatic brain injury with continuing deficits.”

Alleging negligence and premises liability, Bergstrom — who’s also suing “Days” distributor Sony — is seeking unspecified damages.
