Ryan Cabrera Sued over Death Trap Driveway

6/17/2009 9:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ryan CabreraTwo girls claim they were seriously injured -- and one says she almost died -- all because they decided to give singer Ryan Cabrera a ride home from a bar.

It all went down last November, when Claudia Abraham and Mary DiPersio claim they were with Ryan at a Burbank bar and agreed to drive him home. According to the suit, when they arrived at Ryan's home he invited them in.

The women say they walked up the driveway but it was steep, poorly lit and "littered with leaves and debris, and contained unsafe, slippery tiles."

They went inside the house, but on their way out, they both claim they slipped and violently fell down the driveway.

The suit claims Abraham suffered "major brain trauma injury, requiring multiple surgeries, and was in a coma, near death." It was so bad the hospital recommended her family pull the plug on life support. Miraculously, she recovered.

DiPersio suffered injuries to her face, head, neck and hands -- which also required surgery.

The girls are suing for unspecified damages.

A rep for Ryan gave us this statement: "I don't know anything about a lawsuit."

What?    

This story is too incomplete to reach judgment. Were emergency services/police called in that night, etc...

Abraham suffered the major brain trauma from her head repeatedly pounded against the headboard of his bed. At least thats what his attorney will claim.

Rob Dyrdek (from MTV's Rob & Big and Fantasy Factory) use to live next door to Ryan. If you've seen the house Rob lived in when he did Rob & Big, you'd know that you have to climb stairs to get to the front entry of his house. Therefore, it is likely that there are stairs to climb to get inside Ryan's house too. If so, I would think a fall would be possibly and quite dangerous. But, being at a bar, trying to pick up D-listers, these beyotches were likely dressed like stripper hoes, complete with 5-inch hooker heels that no sane woman can properly walk in. I'm sure they've learned their lesson and will dress more comfortably when trolling for D-list celebrity douche bags next time.

What?    

Injuries to her face? Most people fall backward. That driveway has a heck of a slope; they must have been rolling down the driveway.

Sherman Oaks, huh? I thought he lived in a house on a hill, up a long and winding road...or something. I'd like to hear the expanation as to why they received such massive injuries for what amounts to a slip and fall.

They were drunk and fell down and now they're blaming it on this D-lister schlub?! Next time he should keep the little groupies overnight, bump uglies with them, and bid farewell in the light of day when they are sobered up - Problems avoided.

To #16 mike d - Man, get a dictionary! Your whole comment is one long run-on sentence. Ever hear of a period? "saw it was unsake"? What the hell is "ide"? Did you even go to school? How pathetic.
