Soon after the accident, Mr Freeman announced his marriage was over
Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman is being sued by the female passenger who was travelling with him when he crashed his car in August last year.
Demaris Meyer said she has filed a legal case in Mississippi accusing the 71-year-old star of negligence.
She added the crash had "changed her life" as she was still suffering both "physically and emotionally" and was unable to return to work.
Mr Freeman's publicist said: "We're confident this will all be resolved."
'Pain and suffering'
Ms Meyer has also denied claims that she had been romantically involved with Mr Freeman.
"I have been labelled as the other woman and have been accused of having caused the break-up of Mr Freeman's marriage. Nothing could be further from the truth," she said.
"I had hoped and prayed that Mr Freeman, or his representatives, would have set the record straight and cleared my name, but they have not done so and that is why I have chosen to come forward to tell the truth about our relationship."
The legal case claims Mr Freeman was not paying attention on the night of the accident and had failed to keep the vehicle under control.
"I sustained numerous injuries. I was unconscious following the accident. I could not take care of myself for several months," Ms Meyer said.
"I have not been able to go back to work and still am suffering both physically and emotionally as a result of the accident."
She is suing for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, permanent disability and property damage.
However, an exact financial figure for the claim has not been disclosed.
Mr Freeman, who won an Oscar for his performance in 2004's Million Dollar Baby, co-starred in last year's The Dark Knight.
