Court holds woman with fractured wrist did not suffer "serious impairment;" not entitled to make injury claim
Rita Khami sued the at-fault driver after she suffered a fracture to her non-dominant wrist in a car accident. She claimed that the injury prevented her from holding her baby, interfered with her use of sign language (as she is essentially deaf without her hearing aids) and also prevented her from performing household chores. The Court examined her testimony and found no support for these allegations. It concluded that her normal life was not disrupted even during the two months Khami's wrist was casted and affirmed the dismissal of her claim.
