Lamar Odom -- Another Woman Tries Cashing In

11/9/2009 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Money can buy a lot of things -- a reality TV wedding, for example -- but it couldn't get Lamar Odom off the hook for a car accident he was involved in back in 2007.

Lamar Odom

Lamar offered the victim in the crash a settlement, but it wasn't to her liking-- so she filed a lawsuit last week, almost two years to the day of the accident.

celeb car crashesThe woman, 37, claims she is "disabled from her normal duties and will be so disabled in the future." Oh, and her '97 Geo Prizm was totaled.

She is seeking unspecified damages.

Every accident is different and every injury is different. If this woman was injured,who is to say she wasnt hurt to the point of being disabled. Her car may not be much to some people,but to her,it may have been all she had,and it was all the transportation she had! I was rear-ended a few years ago with my daughter and we were both seriously injured.Sometimes,people dont get hurt,other times,they die. The article doesnt say how much he offered this lady,either.

I hate to say it, but to a degree I agree with post #12. (not the bite me part) I had a pretty bad car accident at age 19. 30 stitches in head & face, and after a couple years of plastic surgeon, thought that was it. Am now 41 with terrible neck problems, (damaged & deteriorated discs) and Dr. says more than likely from same accident. The body is a funny thing like that. I'm curious what the details are here, but knowing TMZ, we'll find out soon enough!

I also agree with uhHuh. We can't know what injuries were sustained because all car accidents are different and a lot depends on the type of car you drive. This lady was driving a Geo Prizm - that's a VERY small car - not much there to absorb any type of impact, making the occupants doubly at risk for injury.

Just my opinion.

That intersection looks like Rosecrans and Aviation Avenues in Hawthorne. Am I right? As for the lady in question, I bet that back in 2007 she didn't know who LO was. When she realized who he is that's when she contacted a lawyer 2 years later. It's one thing to sue for legitimate injuries, but to make an easy buck, is not cool. My husband was involved in a bad accident. The lady rolled her car, but the horrible part was that she had her 5 month old baby on her lap, who was ejected from the car. Fortunately, the baby lived, but we were sued for a lot of money for the baby alone. The point, sometimes other people have to pay for other peoples stupidity.

uhHuh    

EVERY ACCIDENT IS UNIQUE AS ARE BODIES/INJURIES. JUST SAYIN,,, DOESN'T MAKE HER A GOLDDIGGER.MINOR NECK WHIPLASH REALLY HURTS ABOUT 20YRS LATER!! ALL STATES HAVE A STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR TIME IF A CLAIM IS TO BE MADE. SHE MAY NOT KNOW THE EXTENT OF INJURY YET, INSURANCE ONLY PAYS XXX AMOUNT,HER LOSSES & DR BILLS MAY NOT EVEN BE FULLY COVERED BY POLICY. SHE MAY NEED TO COVER HER A** BY OPENING A CLAIM, WE DON'T KNOW HER SITUATION & FOLKS SHOULDNT BE SO QUICK TO ASSUME A FENDER BENDER ISN'T PAINFUL OR DAMAGING.
IF IT WASN'T, I'D PROBLY BE AT WORK RIGHT NOW RATHER THAN DEBATING THIS STUPID CRAP & GRABBING TMZ FOR SOME PATHETIC INTERACTION!!!!
