'Full House' Star Jodie Sweetin Sues Over 2011 Car Accident

Jodie Sweetin, who charmed America as Stephanie Tanner on the '90s sitcom "Full House," was in a car accident last year, and is now taking her complaints to court.

According to TMZ, Sweetin, 30, filed a lawsuit against Clark Taylor Stavros on July 18 and is asking for more than $25,000 to cover her medical bills and damage costs stemming from a March 2011 car accident in LA.

Sweetin tweeted about the accident on March 5, 2011:

The actress also mentioned the accident to her former "Full House" co-star and friend Candace Cameron Bure on Twitter, writing that she was injured while "Driving home from 'Take Me Home Tonight' premier and someone turned left RIGHT in front of me. Hit them, totaled my car :("

Sweetin starred on "Full House" from 1987 to 1995, along with Bob Saget, John Stamos, Dave Coulier and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. After she wrapped the ABC sitcom the actress began abusing drugs and alcohol, and she chronicled those tumultuous years in her 2009 memoir, "unSweetined."

Sweetin is currently engaged to fiance Morty Coyle and the couple welcomed daughter Beatrix in August 2010. Sweetin is also mom to a 4-year-old daughter, Zoie, from a previous relationship.
