Suing Spouses: Can your wife sue you for injuries in a traffic accident?

Traditionally, spouses could not sue one another for injuries inflicted either intentionally or negligently. For example a wife could not file a suit against  her husband for injuries she suffered in a car accident while he was driving. The reason behind this rule was that such lawsuits disrupted "marital harmony" and created opportunity for fraud or collusion. Some states will now allow spouses to sue for any injuries caused intentional wrongful acts and for car accidents. So yes your wife can sue you!
