EXCLUSIVE

0115-cam-gigandet-tmz"Twilight" star Cam Gigandet -- who played James the vampire in the first movie -- is an expert at hitting it from the back ... this according to a new lawsuit, which says the actor rear-ended another vehicle while driving his car last year.

A woman named Jacqueline Nia just filed the lawsuit in L.A., claiming she was driving along Santa Monica boulevard on January 28th, 2012 when Cam rammed into her from behind.

Jackie says she incurred serious injuries as a result of the accident -- causing her "great physical, mental, and nervous pain, suffering, and anguish."

She now wants money to cover her medical expenses and lost wages -- suing for unspecified damages.

Calls to Cam's people weren't immediately returned.

Twilight star Cam Gigandet was recently involved in a motor vehicle accident and is now being sued. Mr. Gigandet allegedly rear ended Jacqueline Nia while driving along Santa Monica Boulevard. Had this accident occurred in Virginia it is likely that he would have been charged with reckless driving in addition to any civil suits that may be brought. In the civil suit there are two main issues that must be proved. First, Ms. Nia must prove fault or show that Mr. Gigandet’s actions were the cause of the accident. It is typically the driving of the car who rear ends the other that is determined to be at fault in these types of accidents so proving this should not be too difficult. Second, Ms. Nia must prove damages or that the injuries she is claiming where in fact cause by the accidents. This issue often becomes a battle of the experts and an investigation into the plaintiff’s prior medical records in order to ensure that there were not any preexisting injuries. However, in reality many of these cases are settled well before they actually go to trial.

Sounds like their insurance companies weren't 100% on everything and the settle not wasn't enough. The car may be fixed but the mysterious injuries magically got worse.
