The worker from the movie “Rust” who suffered horrific injuries from a spider bite on the job won’t need to have his arm amputated… and it looks like he’s going to get a mock-up of workers.
The cinema worker, Jason miller, tells TMZ… his left arm will be saved despite grizzly photos of his severe reaction to a bite from a poisonous brown recluse spider, which bit him as he destroyed the film set.
Jason, who is diabetic, says he had invasive surgery in which doctors removed a bunch of muscle and skin from his left arm, but he’s responding well to treatment and surgeries.
He says “Rust” should be held responsible for the poisonous spider bite as a result of the deadly shooting of Halyna Hutchins … and the wheels are moving for him to get workers compensation.
Jason claims he was getting dodged by folks at “Rust” after contacting 6 times about workers’ compensation, but now his lawyers say they’re working with the movie’s insurance company to get him to pay for his problems.
While Jason says he greatly appreciates the wave of public support, with more than $ 13,000 donated to his GoFundMe, He insists what happened to him was a freak accident … and he wants to focus on Halyna Hutchins because he thinks her gunshot death could have been avoided.
Jason’s lawyers, Justin and Lydie Pizzonia, tell TMZ … while things are going well right now, they are ready to file a complaint against the insurance company for “Rust” if Jason is not properly compensated.
