Reality TV regular Joe Meinwieser, whose work features on U.S. show Tattoos After Dark, claims he suffered broken ribs, a fractured spine and a broken hand in December (14) after Larroquette reportedly made an illegal U-turn out of a Venice, California parking lot and collided with his motorcycle.

Police launched an investigation into the accident, but no charges have been filed against the Night Court actor to date, and as a result, Meinwieser is struggling to secure compensation from Larroquette's car insurance representatives to pay for his medical expenses, which the 67 year old allegedly promised to cover.

He is now planning to sue, insisting the accident has left him unable to work, according to

Representatives for Larroquette have yet to comment on the incident.
