"Full House" star Jodie Sweetin got smashed in a car accident ... and now she's suing the guy who hit her for more than $25,000 ... TMZ has learned.

In the lawsuit, filed today, the ex Stephanie Tanner claims the accident happened in LA in March, 2011 -- and that she suffered damage to her vehicle, loss of wages, and loss of "earning capacity."

TMZ obtained a copy of the suit Jodie filed against Clark Taylor Stavros ... and in it she also claims to have racked up medical bills. All told ... Jodie claims the accident set her back $25k.

At the time of the wreck ... Jodie tweeted -- "Had a car accident, I'm Ok. A wrist fracture and neck and body are really sore."

How rude.

$25,000... that peanuts for what she's been through. The guy that hit her should gladly pay.

As if she had 25k. Maybe at one time she did, but she blew it all on meth.

Haha "how ruuuude"! My sister used to say that all the time copying Steph, Jodi.
I like Jodi more than a lot of the cast, they're not all as nice as the characters they play :D

Desperation is unattractive


His lawyer should file a countersuit for $25,001


The stress caused by the awareness of the possibility that she would file such a lawsuit due to her elevated public status is a factor which cannot be ignored. In addition to that, his public reputation is now tarnished as his name has been published as the person responsible for losses in her career.


As it is commonly snickered about in some circles: One frivolous lawsuit deserves another.

25k for medical bills and lost wages is not outrageous. A fractured wrist alone is bad enough, but the cost of a spinal injury (head and neck pain), combined with a desire for a former addict to avoid opiate pain medications, means that she would have a lot of pain to deal with. $25k is probably the max the guy's insurance will cover. There is no point in going for more than that. Even if she wins, she will still be out more than that in medical bills.
