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.

James may have seen a doctor just to get checked out that is not unusual for that to happen.

There is no way he could have even felt that tiny Porsche hit his 18 wheeler.

Nobody said a word when Lindsay had HER Lawyer show up at the hospital, but it's not OK for this guy to lawyer up? They both will need lawyers, obviously, and one of them was at fault, and should pay.

Now they know what to do in the court for the next 5 years.

My original comment regarding this incident still stands:

When you hire Lindsay Lohan, you also need to hire a professesional driver and ban her from driving while the project is in progress. It cannot cost that much money and the rental companies would be happy.

As for the producers until this happen, I will quote "Phantom of the Opera": Amateurs, Amateurs.

my brother was in a car accident, said he was fine afterwards. 3 weeks later the pain started in his back and down his arm, he was in horrible pain and had to have multiple back and neck surgeries due to the accident. It was a one car accident, he was driving and lost control on the ice. No one to blame but himself, so he wasn't out to make a buck. But it just shows that sometimes the injuries do not show up until later.

James the truck driver is entitled to a lawyer. I hope haters will defend the rights of Lindsays assistant and Lifetime driver to hire a lawyer and sue James the truck driver for defamation.

For all the *******s on here saying, this guy is just after money.. I say **** YOU to you, because you know damn well if you were in his shoes, you would of lawyered up Friday night. Those of you that work for Lohan Inc. post your lame comments this guy is a leach. Well so are you because you know you are crying inside wishing James (the driver) was you.. Getting rear ended by Lohan is a BAM and a half ! Hopefully he can sue Lohan and Lifetime and make it a DOUBLE BAM !

THIS IS AND WAS LINDSAY LOHANS LAST CHANCE AND SHE BLEW IT! SHE DESERVES EVEYTHING THAT IS COMING HER WAY !!!
