Abuja - A mother has allegedly filed a lawsuit against her dead son after he caused her psychiatric injury after dying in a car crash, the UK Metro reports.
The woman, Iman Homsi, has claimed to have not worked since suffering a severe psychiatric reaction after receiving news of her son's death.
Suing for mental anguish, Homsi's case was thrown out of court after the presiding judge stated that she was not at the scene of the accident to witness the death and she was therefore not an immediate victim of the crash.
