A Howell woman who sued her husband over injuries she suffered in a 2006 traffic accident plans to appeal a jury verdict that awarded her $1.3 million, her attorneys say.

The Asbury Park Press reports that Keila Cengiz, 40, of Howell, was initially awarded $5.3 million on Dec. 13 for her pain and suffering stemming from a 2006 crash her husband caused, but had that the amount was reduced because the jury found her to be 80 percent responsible for her own injuries because she was not wear a seatbelt.

On Dec. 9, 2006, Cengiz was a passenger in her husband’s sport-utility vehicle when Yucel Cengiz lost control and crashed into a car driven by a North Carolina man, before rolling over multiple times, the Asbury Park Press reports.

One of Cengiz’s attorneys, James Maggs, of the Brielle law firm Maggs and McDermott, told the Asbury Park Press that her left leg was ejected through the vehicle’s sunroof and crushed between the vehicle’s roof and the road.

As a result, she sued her husband – to whom she is still married – so she could collect from his insurance company.

Yeah, it looks to me that they had piss poor car insurance. Maybe they are trying to recoup from some other insurance source? Or this is some kind of scam.

Its different everywhere. In Florida I don't think this situation is possible, but I may be wrong.

On Dec. 9, 2006, Cengiz was a passenger in her husband’s sport-utility vehicle when Yucel Cengiz lost control and deliberately crashed into a car driven by a North Carolina man, because she was nagging him into suicide, before rolling over multiple times, the Asbury Park Press reports.

Fixed it to portray more plausible scenario.

I knew this was what it was about before I even clicked. This is actually pretty common. Maybe not husband and wife, but I have friends who have sued friends...and remained friends. I don't allow them over to my house, though.

That's typical. SOP is "sue everyone even remotely connected with the injury." What confuses me is that I didn't think one was allowed to sue ones own spouse if you were still spouses. It's a massive conflict of interest - the husband has zero incentive to defend against the suit because is she wind, he wins.

More like she thought she should have hit the "pain and suffering" jackpot and the insurance company only gave her actual damages.

She doesn't have a leg to stand on.

Hey, somebody had to say it.

The Justice system is totally gone a long time ago.

The legal system is totally broken, how the fuck can she sue her husband and get anything, unless he crashed it on purpose and was trying to hur/kill her.

This is a shit happens catagory

Yeah, I fail to see any issue.

Normally when you get in a serious car accident you sue the responsible party for any damages. In this case the responsible party is her husband, but the insurance company would be paying.

The husband has a duty to assist in the defense of the lawsuit or the insurance company will not cover the loss.

If you want coverage you have to sue. Wife and I were in a wreck. No serious injuries. Insurance said if we needed any medical coverage she would have to sue me for coverage. Itsdone internally, but if your getting paid and the insurance company is making you sue your own spouse, then they kinda get what they deserve.

Not one bit. I was illuminating why it doesn't surprise me.
