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.

Please, he probably had it coming. Those guys chase her around and create dangerous situations for not only themselves but and and the general public. Where do they get off sueing her. I have seen plenty of videos where the paps stand in front of celebrities cars and refuse to move when they try to drive away. I am not a fan of Lyndsay but this is bull****, I hope whoever the judge is does too.

aside from the time that has passed, if he wasn't chasing people around with a camera then maybe he wouldn't get hit by cars.

"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."

.

Translation: Insurance offered to cover medical costs but the stalker...I mean Paparazzo wants 10 million dollars for pain and suffering. Personally I say if he was blocking her path and not allowing the car to leave and got hit then he is to blame. Too many stalkers...I mean Paps now see stars as their big payday. Big payday if they get a shocker photo, or big payday when they get injured harassing the stars.

I am by no means a Lindsay fan, but this sounds like a money grab. The insurance offer was probably for actual costs, medical bills, time off work etc. They wouldn't pay him for Lindsay's star power. If paps surround a car or mash up against the side of a moving car to get pics.. they deserve to get hit! I can't jump infront of a car at the mall and get a million dollar payout!

I hope that just before the judge throws his pathetic butt out of the courtroom he/she orders this douche to pay LL's legal fees.

Sorry, no one cares. You know why? You shutter bugs crowd a MOVING CAR! You make it impossible to drive because your all over it when someone is trying to leave. Then you wonder why you get hit?! Fools...

These jerks hound the celebritys, and then want to
exploit them when they cause harm to themselves.

Not a Lohan fan but, the papo needs to get out of the way of a car. He was probably invading her space to be hit by a car. Idiot should learn to move.

I DO NOT FEEL SORRY FOR ANY PAPS WHO GET HIT BY A CAR WHEN THEY ARE CLEARLY JUMPING IN FRONT OF IT JUST TO GET A PIC! THESE PAPS WILL JUMP INTO THE PATH OF A MOVING VEHICLE FOR THEIR OWN SELFISH NEEDS, NOT EVEN TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION THE SAFETY OF THEMSELVES OR OTHERS. TO ME THIS IS A JOB HAZARD THAT THEY THEMSELVES CAUSE, THEN THEY EXPECT SOMEONE ELSE TO PAY FOR THEIR MEDICAL TREATMENT AND BADMOUTH THE CELEBRITY (WHETHER THE CELEB WAS DRIVING OR NOT)THERE OUTTA BE A LAW.....

These worms surround the cars and refuse to move, then want to cry foul when they get injured? Ridiculous! Stop being so damn pushy and putting yourself in harms's way!

I have NO problem with her running him over. I hate to say it, but the pap's have gotten far to bold and for anyone to try to drive with people standing in front of a moving/running vehicle with hundreds of flashes going off is absurd! I say.. if you want the picture.. you're gonna pay for it!
