Lindsay Lohan Car Crash

Truck Driver Lawyers Up

6/11/2012 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0610_lilo_truck_driver_getty_tmzThe truck driver on the receiving end of Lindsay Lohan's Porsche has already lawyered up, TMZ has learned.

TMZ spoke with truck driver James, who tells us he was injured in the crash, and apparently wants money for his pain and troubles ... thus the reason for a lawyer.

James says he saw a doctor Sunday, despite previously telling us he felt fine.  He would not describe the nature of his injuries, on the advice of his hired gun.

TMZ broke the car crash story, and then the plot thickened when James told TMZ ... after the accident Lindsay's assistant removed a mysterious pink bag from the Porsche and asked him not to mention it to the media. He says Lindsay's people asked him to settle up on the spot, but he declined.

Of course he lawyered up.... he has to. The Lohan-brand grief tornado will do what it does every time: Try to shred his credibility with lie after pathetic lie.

Tra la la la.... another day in Lindsayland.

People are such leeches. From the second I heard this story I knew the other driver was going to sue. People have no honor anymore. Anything for a quick buck. It's disgusting.

Why shouldn't he get a lawyer? Lindsay has been blaming this guy from the moment SHE crashed into HIM. He's only doing the prudent thing to make sure he's not railroaded by Lohan's crisis management team.

This just confirms all the info I gave about how shady his story was. So badly hurt, he gets a lawyer days after? So badly hurt he video'ed for TMZ before going to get checked? He's in a damn armored tank compared to Lohan's car. That thing wouldn't have even stuttered.

so it is ok for lindsay to lawyer up but not the truck driver, He has a legal right to lawyer up the same as lindsay. In fact i suggest anyone ever has a legal problem no matter how small or how large you should lawyer up.

Well, Lohan can lie cheat and steal her way through life, so why can't this guy get a piece of that pie? It's called karma.
