'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.

TMZ, Why do you ask for comments only to delete them? As stated before, this is factual information. Oh, I know.. You paid her for the pix and she does not like the comment. I think that it could be useful in protecting Sams assets. Let's get both sides of the story and stop playing poor me, Sarah.

See below......

She was probably drunk and fell next to the car. The poor bastard ran her over by accident. I heard she was busted for a DUI @ LKL and still drove around LA with out a license. Karma is a b!tch. This girl needs help and AA. Always made problems for everyone @ work..If you knew her, you know what I am talking about. Lazy. Drunk. Star F'ker.

It sounds like she is going after more than the insurance company legally needs to cover. It was an accident, they happen all the time to everyone. Sometimes you need to take some unpaid leave.. deal with it. There is a reason your policy lists what it will cover in compensation and injury. The guy wasn't doing anything wrong, wasn't drunk.. he was trying to pull away, at some point she should have stepped away from the car, now she want's to sit home popping her pain pills and getting a check in the mail. She didn't lose her foot, she's not permanently disabled. Christ..

Your argument is saturated with cat feces. I live in Canada. A broken foot would be x-rayed immediately in the emergency room and taken care of the same day. Stupid American lol

You're a Canadian imbecile with a massive inferiority complex in that case. Two types of Canadians, those who are brutally honest and those leftist twits who bemoan "stupid americans" and hold a pathetic and laugh self-delusion that Canada is superior.

Half of my family is from Canada. I have dual citizenship and been to the god forsaken socialist cesspool too many times. My friend crashed his dirtbike and bounced his head off the road in Nova Scotia. It took him 2 weeks before they did the first catscan. In America he would have been rushed directly to the machine in 2 minutes. It was three weeks later before they started to attempt to fix his shoulder.

This chick is like 99% of the people in LA: fake. She's a 40 something year old wannabe who rents a dumpy apartment with no washer/dryer and drives a leased lux car she can't afford. Sorry to say i do not feel sorry for her. I'm sure she's trying to screw over the poor schmuck who accidentally ran over her foot.
