Sophie Monk
is an expensive crash victim -- TMZ has learned, the model's demanding at least $900,000 from a driver she claims temporarily put her in a wheelchair after a 2010 car accident.

TMZ broke the story ... Sophie sued driver Delvinder Sing Bains back in April, claiming the guy caused her severe injuries when his Ford Explorer collided with the Prius she was riding in.

Sophie was seen being rolled around in a wheelchair soon after the accident -- and according to the lawsuit, the crash cost her a fortune in medical bills.

0406_wheelchair_sub_febNow, she's putting a number on her damages -- at least $900,000, plus loss of earnings, costs of suit, medical bills, and more.

Attempts to reach the driver she's suing were unsuccessful.

The photo in the wheelchair looks staged. There is talk that she has a relationship with the photo agency who took the wheelchair photos. She probably gets $$ for the photos too. Get a real job.

BFD. Medical expenses covered by insurance are not recoverable. The other driver's insurance company will want to see her medical records. Then there's the issue of who was at fault. Loss of earnings could be an issue if she couldn't perform a job for a certain time. Who's in a wheelchair temporarily? I'm guessing this will settle for a small amount...

If she has aftra/sag medical insurance, she has some of the best medical insurance out there. Her medical bills should be minimal.

Does this broad not have medical insurance? WTF. She (a pseudo celebrity, I guess) is going to sue a lowly commoner and actually thinks she's going to get that kind of money? From the looks of it, she's BARELY injured.. she has an ace bandage on her foot. It could have been a whole lot worse.

If she'd been in a real car/truck she'd have been fine.

Anyone seen this talentless twit act? If she's suing for "loss of earnings" the amount should be closer to $832.

Good luck with that, unless the driver of the Explorer is loaded I doubt he has that much insurance to cover it ...

My neighbor's cousin's nephew's pizza delivery guy also made $70.00 an hour on the internet. Now he can afford to have his head removed from his colon.

Wow is all i can say 2 this. She's just makin stuff up i'm pretty sure it's all a lie. she's a pretty girl not hating on her at all but come on now is that how much time u have on ur hands. she must not be that in demand because a simple injury wouldnt have u out of a job that long. poor innocent guy she makes all this money but shes goin 2 sue that much that smells bs 2 me. thanks 4 putting the poor man in debt thats 4 sure. I dont feel bad 4 her its him im feeling bad 4. NEVER EVEN HEARD ABOUT HER BEFORE AND THATS THE END OF THAT. thank u.

I am sure since the driver can afford a Ford Explorer he will be easily able to cover sophie's demands.
