Miranda Cosgrove has just filed paperwork to explain the lawsuit she has filed from the 2011 accident that left her with a broken ankle. The lawsuit claims that she is owed a huge amount of money to cover her losses.
The former iCarly star was injured when her tour bus collided with a tractor trailer that was on the highway in front of them.
Other occupants of Miranda Cosgrove’s tour bus, who were sleeping in the back, were unharmed.
Miranda Cosgrove was sleeping on a couch near the front of the bus and her mother was near the front, as well.
Therefore, the two of them suffered more serious injuries.
“Miranda’s mom was on the bus with her and got really beaten up by the crash,” a source close to Miranda Cosgrove told People after the crash. “She’s expected to fully recover, but it’s scary because the driver was hurt, too, and he’s in really bad shape.”
“This was a life-threatening crash,” the source continued, but the really serious injuries were to the bus driver.
According to the same source, “A piece from the tractor-trailer went straight through the windshield and the driver’s arm was sliced all the way through.”
It is this same bus driver who, along with the tractor trailer driver, is named in Miranda Cosgrove‘s case.
Miranda Cosgrove is reportedly suing for damages because she says the accident derailed 25 booked concerts, which would have netted her nearly $400,000. She also claims that she lost another $560,000 in future shows, that Sony Music dumped her after the accident, and that she lost her $400,000 Neutrogena contract as a result of her injuries.
However, the tractor trailer driver has reportedly said that he thinks Miranda Cosgrove exaggerated her $184,490.16 medical bill.
This could cause the rest of Miranda Cosgrove’s claims to be under intense scrutiny, as well.
What do you think? Do Miranda Cosgrove’s claims seem a little inflated to you?
