The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik is taking legal action after sustaining severe hand injuries in a car accident last year (12).

The actress was hospitalised after a Mustang slammed into her white Volvo in an intersection in Hollywood last summer (Aug12), and now she claims she suffered nerve damage in the crash.

The former Blossom star has filed a lawsuit against the driver of the other vehicle, who is believed to have been a tourist, as well as bosses at rental car company Hertz.

According to, Bialik is seeking unspecified damages, including lost wages.
