Mayim Bialik

Sues Over Car Accident

I Nearly Lost a Hand!

"Big Bang Theory" actress Mayim Bialik has just sued over her serious car accident last year -- claiming it nearly cost her a hand.

As we reported, Bialik was driving in her white Volvo last August when it was struck by a 2013 Mustang in a Hollywood intersection. The other car was filled with Chilean tourists.

At the time, a source told us there was blood everywhere at the crash scene, stemming from major damage to Mayim's hand. Another source said "her finger was almost completely severed ... it was just hanging there."

Now the former "Blossom" star has filed a lawsuit against the other driver as well as Hertz Rent-a-Car -- presumably because the other car was a rental -- claiming she suffered injuries to her right hand, right thumb, and nerve damage.

She's suing for unspecified damages, but that includes lost wages -- and since she earns a reported 5 figures per episode on "Big Bang," it could really add up.

Pretty sure Linds was in Hollywood last August. I bet it was her, DUI'ing around all gacked on speed and liquor. Might as well sue her like everyone else. One million!

It's about time I'm reading a story about someone suing over something legitimate, instead of bull****, lies, and for money grabs.

I do not agree with suing Hertz. They had no way of knowing an accident would happen. The other driver is at fault, and if insurance worked like it should, they would pay for it, the matter would be done. Being a sue happy nation has brought us down as a whole.

Won't get much from the insurance company, most likely there is a limit and she wants more, more, more, so lets sue Hertz. You ugly Btich, get back to work and make the network some more money and get me a samitch, Btich. LOL

Seriously? The rental car service is not to blame for the bad driving of their costumers... I get being mad at the person who hit her, but she makes MORE MONEY in a week then most people make all year! How lame of her to sue. Also, it's called an ACCIDENT for a reason. She still has her hand and she can still use it.

Maybe she's just bitter that her book bombed and people are making fun of her terrible parenting. Seriously, when you're insane parenting practices are directly to blame for your divorce, it might indicate that you're doing it wrong. So, divorce, bombing book... she's bitter and for some reason seems like a money hoe even though she makes plenty of money as it is.

She has a PHD in neuroscience. I imagine she would way rather have a functioning right hand again than ANY amount of money. They crippled her for life, there should be consequences for that.

How did she nearly lose her hand? None of the windows on the Narcissist car de jure Volvo are broken. Did the steering wheel try and bite it off?
