Shemar Moore -- PAY ME, You BUSTED My Leg!

5/19/2011 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shemar Moore is suing the automobile driver who allegedly smashed into him while he was riding his bicycle -- sending the "Criminal Minds" star to the hospital.

In the lawsuit, filed today in L.A. Superior Court, Moore claims the driver -- Phillip Randall -- failed to yield and struck Shemar and his bike from behind ... back in 2009.

Shemar doesn't specify his injuries in the lawsuit -- but as TMZ reported at the time he was treated at a hospital for a broken leg.

Moore wants to be repaid for medical bills, loss of past and future income -- and his busted bike.

For some reason some drivers view bike riders as a game - lets see how many we can hit!! My 80-something year old uncle has been run off the road repeatedly while riding his bike. I think reimbursement is only fair if Moore's leg was broken by the driver. In fact, sounds to me like he's getting off easy.

the car drivers insurance should be enough to cover the accident even if he had liability only. Unless he has a shady insurance company. We wont mention them here.

A broken leg plus loss wages for this guy is worth a lot more than CA minimum Auto Liability requirement.

I wonder why he waited so long to sue him or are we just hearing about it now?
He should be fully compensated.

It took more than a year to notice he had a broken leg?

The driver better hope Moore is willing to settle, because if he is told to pay the man's actual wages and what he can reasonably expect to make for say, just the next year - driver will be out millions.

I agree with you jxtr. Criminal Minds is one of the best shows on tv. Shemar is a great actor and one handsome man. He deserves the money if he was injured due to the negligence of this driver. Drivers think they rule the road. They don't. They don't care when pedestrians have the right of way. They speed right through the red lights. Lets be honest. If this happened to anyone of you or a family member you'd sue also. Get over yourselves who think just because he's an actor and makes money he doesn't deserve justice for his injuries.

Just because he's an actor doesn't mean he shouldn't get paid. He's out alot of money if he couldn't work! Should he just hand the driver a thank you and be on his way then? lol I don't think so. He has rights just like the average joe does.

wow    

Shemar is hot, met him a few years back and had a nice conversation. Good sense of humor and sexy as hell. His autographed photo is in our family album. I hope there's no long term damage from the accident.

I agree that his bills should get paid and thats it.I for one, am sick of people suing other people over
Just remember that bicylcists also need to follow the rules/laws. I've seen my share of bikes not stop at intersections,run thru lights(bikes have to obey traffic just like cars) cut thru traffic etc etc. It's a 2 way street and we both need to pay attention

********************************
you are exactly right..the driver was in the wrong and should compensate Shemar..just like you said , because he is a actor. some people think he shouldnt have the same justice as anyone else in this situation
