90s Star 'Parker Lewis'

Check Out My Post-Crash

The guy who played 90s smartass Parker Lewis wasn't lying when he said he shattered his leg in a boating accident -- TMZ has obtained a photo of his reassembled mass of leg flesh ... and it's GNARLY.

As we reported, 41-year-old Corin Nemec was involved in a near-death accident in Belize last month that left his femur broken in three places. Nemec was riding on a Coast Guard vessel -- on his way to the set of his new movie "Poseidon Rex" -- when it crashed into a semi-submerged barge and sent him flying.

Nemec says he lost over half the blood in his body -- and required several transfusions to save his life.

But now, Parker Lewis is finally facing a problem he can't fix -- Nemec tells TMZ, the insurance company that's supposed to pay his medical bills is threatening to cut him off ... if he doesn't sign a scary contract.

According to Nemec, the insurance company wants him to sign an agreement that releases both the insurance company AND the production company from liability stemming from the accident ... aka Nemec can't sue either of them for a massive settlement. If he doesn't sign, it's bye-bye hospital money.

So now Nemec's got a choice -- take the insurance money to pay his medical bills ... or try his luck in court in order to win even MORE money.

We're told Nemec's still sweating the decision -- and is currently exploring his legal options. Tick tock. A rep for the insurance company tells us, "We do not discuss matters relating to insured’s claims."

Dude, don't settle. You have no clue what future medical bills you will incur from this. This can effect everything frim your health to wage earnings. The hospitals can't sue you as long as your making SOME payment and they understand personal injury suits can take a while to settle. They KNOW they owe you BIG and they're using their typical scare tactics. Sue the fuq out if them. If anyones qualified for a legit lawsuit it's you. And ask if your state allows "future medical damages". Lawyers can't tell you about future medical damages, but if you ask and your in a state or country that allows it, it's your keys to the candy store $$$.

Diamond Goddess!    

The insurance company is TOTES liable for ALL of his medical bills because this happened WHILE shooting!!!
What fuqqery to try and get him to absolve them of responsibility for this on-set injury.
(This is precisely why productions HAVE to carry insurance--in case of accidents like this.
E-V-I-L!!!

ACE insurance is CYA because the primary responsibility to pay Nemec's medical bills is the coast guard vessel company in Belize. Since the accident occured in another country, the coast guard company may not have insurance or enough money to pay a long term medical injury. ACE is trying to protect themselves by having Nemec sign their release just in case the coast guard vessel company defaults and Nemec sues ACE & his employer as his back-up medical expenses.
