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.

Is this jerk for real? He steps in front of her car, invades THEIR space, his feet are pretty much under the wheels, all for one stupid shot and he sues her when she HITS him? Maybe if these idiots didn't stand in front of the cars like that and kept a reasonable distance, this crap wouldn't happen. I don't normally stand up for Lohan but I hope his case is thrown out. What a loser.

Well that's what you get when you stand in front of someone's car while it's moving. Most people know that except greedy photographers. How come a bunch of shouting men chasing a woman down a dark street is an insidious and abusive crime but if they're carrying cameras then it's just showbiz??

Can't imagine anything less sympathetic than a fat Armenian papparazzo. Good luck with a jury, scambo.

I know he's just making a living, but half or more of these guys practically ask to be hit, the way they intrude on people's space and crowd cars with their bodies and cameras. That said, I hope he has better video than this because here, it looks like nothing AND like it was his fault for not moving out of the way!

Paparazzi, you have some nerve stepping in the paths of celebrities, and then whining if you get hit. I guess it will take the death of a photog before they put regulations in place. I guess there isn't an American smart enough to figure that out before someone dies.

Grigor Balyan says to the medics "I almost died hit and run" Really! That should of taught this kamikaze paparazzo to lean over the hood of a moving vehicle! Is Grigor Balyan even a American citizen?
