So as well as being the biggest earner of the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' cast, Harrison Ford could be looking at another major pay-out as it's announced that the production company allegedly responsible for his broken leg in the summer of 2014 has been charged for the incident in accordance with Britain's Health and Safety  authorities.

Harrison FordHarrison Ford's leg injury has production company prosecuted

Foodles Production (UK) Ltd., who were based at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire when Ford damaged his leg on the Millennium Falcon's hydraulic door, are being prosecuted by the UK's Health and Safety Executive (HSE) on four counts of breaching workplace safety regulations. 

'By law, employers must take reasonable steps to protect workers - this is as true on a film set as a factory floor', said the HSE in a statement released yesterday (February 12th 2016). 'We have investigated thoroughly and believe that we have sufficient evidence to bring the case to court.'

Foodles Production are obviously unhappy with the decision, releasing its own statement reading: 'Cast and crew safety is always a top priority. We provided full co-operation during HSE's investigation into the on-set accident that occurred in June 2014 and are disappointed in HSE's decision.'

71-year-old Ford was rushed to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford for surgery on a broken ankle after a heavy door on the set fell on him. Following his recovery, he later returned to the set to complete filming and even laughed off the incident during the film's promotional run telling Conan O'Brien that he'd rather have his character Han Solo killed off in a noble sacrifice rather than an accident. 'Like if I proposed that they shut the f***ing door of the Millennium Falcon on him', he quipped in earshot of director JJ Abrams, who did try and rescue Ford after the incident occurred. 

'I'm really happy that we can laugh about it because it was horrible', said Abrams at the time, though Ford refused to contemplate the accident seriously. 'For me it wasn't so bad because I was the centre of attention', he said. 'People were listening to me for the first time in two days.'
