4/6/2009 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Garry ShandlingSomeone is suing Garry Shandling for a ton of money -- and it's all over a car accident the comedian allegedly caused on the Pacific Coast Highway.

The alleged incident went down back in January, and according to the lawsuit filed in L.A. County Superior Court, the guy on the receiving end of Garry's Porsche claims he was injured pretty badly.

Now, the guy is suing Garry for more than $25,000 for wage loss, medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, property damage and more.

Calls to Garry's reps have not yet been returned.

$25,000 is a lot of money?

For injuries, lost wages and damage to a car in a fairly serious accident $25,000 really isn't much. Around here it's normal to carry $75,000 for coverage of injuries and damage on your car insurance anyway. Not seeing the big deal here.

$25,000? Come on, where's this guy's balls? If you're going to attempt to take a celebrity to court you can at least make it worth your while by breaking the $1,000,000 threshold. Well, I mean as long as you're careful not to let the guys sitting in the car with the tinted windows across the street see you doing strenuous yard work when you're supposed to be half-crippled in a wheelchair.

"This is the theme to Gary's show,
the theme to Gary's show.
Gary called me up and asked if I would write his theme song.
It's almost halfway finished,
how do you like it so far,
How do you like the theme to Gary's show?"

Remember that? The best part about that show was the theme song.

I freaked out when I realized just how mean Gary is in real life. Not nice at all.
Not that this means he deserves anything like this but sometimes you can reap what you sow.

If you've ever been sued over a traffic accident, there are only two boxes to check when the lawsuit is first filed with the court: Under $25k and over $25k. The plaintiff could be suing for $100M or $26k, that won't be specified until later during the back and forth between lawyers and their clients.

As for the suing, this is pretty common practice. This is why car insurance costs so much. Everyone who gets hit thinks they've won the lottery and tries to screw the system for every dollar they can get.

If he IS responsible, he should step up and do the right thing & pay it - - - the man is being very reasonable asking for 25k.
