The family of the man who fell to his death while replacing the roof at a house owned by Olivia Munn has filed a lawsuit against the actress and her mom, according to TMZ.
Celso Merida was hired by Munn and her mother, Kim Schmid, to replace the roof of their house in May. The contractor fell from the roof during his fourth day on the job and suffered multiple injures. He later died while under hospital care.
According to suit, the man suffered blunt force and traumatic injuries after falling from the top. Munn, 41, and her mother reportedly approached an unlicensed contractor named Fernando who referred Merida to the duo.
The family claims the two showed negligence because they approached an unlicensed contractor for the gig. The suit went on to add that the roof Merinda was working on lacked adequate security measures.
The documents further revealed that Merinda was not given proper working tools and that the mother and daughter duo didn’t offer any compensation following the worker’s death.
