According to the Scotsman, Lesley McGlinchey is pursuing damages of £85,300 from automotive giant General Motors - a firm based in the US with more than 200,000 employees worldwide - after an incident in Edinburgh in August 2007.
Ms McGlinchey's writ served to the Scottish capital's Court of Session states that her Vauxhall Signum crushed her against a bollard due to a defective handbrake after she had parked the car and switched off the engine.
She left the vehicle outside her sister's home, but as she got out, it rolled backwards and trapped her.
This resulted in her leg being crushed and the woman subsequently had to take six months off from her job as a tour guide and warden at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
