Kyle Madison, lawyer for the woman who claims Sacha Baron Cohen assaulted her during filming for Bruno, Richelle Olson, says the injuries she suffered are "life-altering," TMZ reports.


Olson says in her lawsuit Cohen showed up at her charity bingo match for the elderly back in 2007 in his Bruno character, and began calling numbers in a vulgar, offensive way. Olson alleges that when she tried grabbing the mic, Sacha physically assaulted her. She says that she then she suffered brain bleeds and sometimes requires assistance walking.

Madison tells TMZ, "The actions of Mr. Cohen and those acting in concert with him have resulted in life-altering injuries to my client. My focus is her well-being and to secure a fair, just and equitable remedy for her claims."
