Lindsay Lohan

Sued By Paparazzo

Over Car Accident

1/10/2012 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0110_lilo_car_tmz_ex2A paparazzo is suing Lindsay Lohan ... claiming he was badly injured when the car in which Lindsay was riding tried making a fast getaway from a Hollywood club and nailed him.

Grigor Balyan was taking pictures of Lindsay at the time of the accident on January 10, 2010.

Balyan's lawyer, Neil Steiner, tells TMZ ... Lindsay is being sued because her assistant was driving the car at her direction.

Steiner says his client was medically treated for orthopedic and neurologic injuries.

Steiner says he tried settling with Lindsay's insurance company but they only made "an insignificant offer." He says all he wants for his client is "reasonable compensation."

Calls to Lindsay's rep were not immediately returned.

as much as i don't care for LL, these paparazzi will do anything for a pay day and that ain't the candybar. i hope he gets nothing because i'm sure LL has nothing to give. these guys stalk people, chase them all over, can't let you get into a car, out of a car, anywhere, trying to instigate a fight so they can take you to court. then when you try and get them out of your way, they try and sue you? i think that if you are going to be a paparazzi, then you should get nothing in court. nothing at all. you are making your money in life harassing others.

Serves him right for being in the way, they are like vultures. Would probably help if he wasn't 400lbs either, talk about a road block!

People are really siding with the parasite photog?! This clown stepped in front a car he had to know was going move soon. Car bigger than man, man lose. These leeches want to invade every moment of celebs' lives and expect them accomodate. Lohan may be a mess, but she still is a PERSON. Laws need passed to curtail this incidious, pernicious business. The "jounalistic" argument that the public has a right to know should NEVER trump a individual's right to privacy. When a person says "NO" to having their picture taken, it should be honored. Celebs should copyright their image in all forms so that publications must seek legal permission to use it.

These "photogs" cause the hazardous situation to begin with! This is no different from a burglar who cuts himself badly breaking into someone else's house and then sues the homeowners becuase he cut himself on broken glass!
