Paz de la Huerta is filing a lawsuit worth $55 million against "Nurse 3D" filmmakers.

De la Huerta, who played a sexy nurse murdering unfaithful men in the 2013 movie, claims that the film's director, Doug Aarniokoski, and an ambulance chaser ruined her career while they were shooting scenes in Canada in 2011, TMZ reported.

The lawsuit indicates that the actress "was shooting a scene where an ambulance was supposed to speed by, but it ended up clipping her," the news outlet added.

"Paz says she suffered a spinal fracture and told movie execs she was going to file a worker's comp claim," TMZ continued. De la Huerta, 30, also said that the director decided she was difficult to work with, so "a lousy actress" was hired to dub her voice in the ambulance scene and in the other sequences.

According to Daily Mail, at the time of the incident, de la Huerta already filed a lawsuit against production company Lionsgate seeking damages for negligence. The previous legal action, however, specified that "she had already been compensated for the accident," the news outlet added.

"Nurse 3D," which also starred Katrina Bowden and Corbin Bleu, performed poorly at the box office with a $5k opening weekend, which didn't even come close to its $10 million budget. Critics blamed the film's failure to de la Huerta's bad performance, TMZ wrote.

The $55 million is to cover de la Huerta's lost earnings, since she puts at $2 million per year, plus punitive damages, the news outlet added. In addition, the actress also wants the judge to order Aarniokoski to re-dub the film with her voice.

Daily Mail pointed out that the movie's flop didn't affect de la Huerta's career that much. The actress has made seven films, including 2015's "Bare," and two episodes of TV series "Eagleheart." She also has acting credits in HBO's "Boardwalk Empire," as well as in "Chuck Hank and the San Diego Twins" currently in post-production for 2016.

Paz de la Huerta Talks 'Bare'

"Bare," which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last April, also featured Dianna Agron as Sarah, who starts a friendship that turns into romance with de la Huerta's character, Pepper, Vanity Fair reported.

According to de la Huerta, the purpose of her and Agron's work together in "Bare" was to "unravel each other," adding that if it weren't for their unalike physical looks, the film "wouldn't have worked," Vanity Fair added.

"From the beginning of the shoot to the end of the shoot, to the point where we reached the sex scene, there was a natural [feel]," de la Huerta said of working alongside Agron, as quoted by Huffington Post.
