The court made a ruling that Disney-owned company breached two health and safety regulations, The Verge.
A Disney-owned production company has been fined almost $2 million for breaching safety regulations after Harrison Ford broke his leg on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
A British court levied the fine on Wednesday against Foodles Production Ltd. that had previously admitted the breaches that resulted in Ford being struck by a hydraulic door that fractured the tibia and fibula bones in his left leg, pinned him to the floor by his pelvis, and left a deep cut in his hand.
Judge Francis Sheridan said of the case: "The greatest failing of all on behalf of the company is a lack of communication".
"If only they had included Mr Ford in all the discussions, he might have at least been alert to the dangers that he had to avoid," he added.
