'Bachelor' Contestant: You Ran Me Over with a Jeep!!!

7/22/2011 5:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A former Bachelor contestant who is now a producer for Ryan Seacrest is suing a guy who allegedly ran over her foot in a Mercedes, and she says the accident is ruining her life.

Sarah Schnare claims last April she was standing next to a car driven by Sam Magid -- a guy who invests in projects involving comic books that are turned into movies.  According to the lawsuit, Sarah was standing at the passenger window of Sam's Mercedes jeep when the vehicle moved, knocking her to the ground. 

But it gets worse.  Sarah claims when she was on the ground, the jeep ran over her right foot, breaking 6 bones.

Sarah tells TMZ ... she hasn't been able to work on Ryan's radio show since April.  Her employer is not Ryan, it's Clear Channel, and the company put her on unpaid leave.

Sarah -- who worked on "Larry King Live" before moving on to Ryan -- says Sam's insurance company refuses to front her any money for the multiple surgeries, lost wages and other expenses she's had to incur as a result of the injuries.

We could not reach Sam for comment.

It's an extremely painful and hard to heal injury. he HAS to have coverage for something like this BY LAW in CALIF. If he can afford a car like that he should have much more than the minimum by law coverage and SHOULD be paying up pronto by his insurance company. Period.

Well, if that had happened in Canada, she'd be fixed up already with their excellent universal health care ... but wouldn't be able to sue anybody for her costs ... maybe just a token settlement in the low 5 figures if she managed to score a really good lawyer who was really aggressive, and preferably Jewish ... but then he'd take half, so all she'd be left with is enough to by a nice 50inch LED TV.

Of all he gnarly injuries I've seen on TMZ this is byfar the worse yet! Having experienced only a one fracture on my foot, I can't imagine the pain this woman is having. She will be unable to walk without crutches for a long time and will probably never recover fully. I would sue royally!

Some white sheets are unlucky i.e. the ones klansmen wear, the ones in nursing homes. But this white sheet in the hospital bed pic, that's one of the lucky ones.

Harvey, how is it that this man's insurance won't pay the claim same as if he hit a pedestrian with his car? It's still his vehicle that ran over her. right? And insurance companies never "front" money for living expenses. If she needs a surgery, insurance pays for it-but they don't cut you a check before you even have the surgery.

And was she on the job when this happened?

The reason why her toes are so long is probably because she is a very tall woman. Kinda keeps you balanced, get it?
