    Mayim Bialik has filed a lawsuit in the wake of her horrible car accident last August and is clearing up reports that the scary incident almost cost her a hand.

    "I did not almost lose my hand," the Big Bang Theory star told E! News at the GLSEN's Respect Awards at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Friday, Oct. 18.

    However, the Emmy-nominated actress is far from being pain free, more than a year after the traumatic event.

    "I sustained significant injuries for which I am still recovering and will continue to be recovering," she explained.

    When asked how she is doing today, she answered "it's alright."

    "I'm aware of it every day not being one hundred percent," she said. "At least it wasn't my face torn open," she added.

    The lawsuit was filed against the other driver and Hertz Rent-a-Car.

    Shortly after the accident on Aug. 15, 2012, Bialik took to her blog to set the record straight.

    "I had a horrible accident," she wrote, noting that she was "lefty typing" due to the damage her other hand sustained in the near head-on collision.

    "I will be okay," she continued. "I have all my fingers but a very impaired right hand. It was very bloody and scary but I am ok. A man named Tim and another man whose name I don't know saved me from losing a lot of blood and helped me talk to my husband at the scene. I am grateful to them."
