Miranda Cosgrove Sues

Tour Bus Crash

Left Me 'Disfigured'

6/20/2013 11:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


"iCarly" actress Miranda Cosgrove claims she was "disfigured and disabled" in a nasty 2011 tour bus crash ... this according to a new  lawsuit obtained by TMZ.

We broke the story ... Cosgrove -- who also happens to be a pop star -- was traveling on a bus in Illinois with 5 other passengers when it slammed into an overturned tractor-trailer that was laying across the highway.

Cosgrove suffered a broken ankle in the wreck ... and was forced to cancel the rest of her tour.

Now, TMZ has learned ... the 20-year-old and her mother (who was also on board) are suing the driver of the bus, the driver of the tractor and the transportation companies ... claiming the whole thing could have been prevented.

In the suit, the Cosgroves claim both drivers were operating their vehicles in an unsafe manner and failed to keep a "safe and proper lookout."

They also claim the tour bus driver failed to hit the brakes in time (...duh).

According to the lawsuit, filed in federal court in Illinois, the women claim they were each "disfigured and disabled" and "have lost their normal lives" as a result of the crash ... though they don't give specific details about their injuries.

They're suing for unspecified damages ... demanding more than $50k each.

Calls to the transportation companies have not been returned.

Fun Fact -- Miranda played the snobby little rich girl in "School of Rock."  Great flick ...

Damn shame the lawsuit doesn't say what the disfigurement is. Hope it's not bullsht. She's one of the few dateable young celebs in Hollywood right now. She's not brainwashing young minds like some other. I totally would.

I see no reason why a singer cannot continue to sing with a broken ankle.

Sounds like another frivolous law suit. They are either greedy or going broke. How much money do they think a tour bus driver has??? lol

back in the real world we call this AN ACCIDENT. Accident: An unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally, typically resulting in damage or injury.

How "disfigured" is your ankle?!? You seem to be walking just fine!!

Yes, because I'm sure the bus driver planned for an overturned truck to be in the road and hit it purposely because he thought it would be fun to get in a wreck. Come on now. Also, I've broken my ankle before in the past. It's not a life-destroying injury. Miranda and her mother should be ashamed of themselves. They want to know what disfigured is really like? Why don't they talk to someone who's been paralyzed or severely burned in a car wreck. Then they might realize that they got off pretty lucky.

I think that mouth has been disfigured since birth.

This is sort of laughable. I've seen her on Runyon Canyon and she looked completely fine to me, no limp, or Igor like hobble.
