I have named as a co defendant and received a summons into court for a vehicle accident that I was not involved in .

Lancaster, OH |
Filed under: Lawsuits and disputes

The car, which I consigned for my daughter was paid off before the accident occurred. Her husband was driving the car. Their insurance is representing them and will probably settle with the plaintiff? The plaintiff is suing for $25,000. Do I need to hire a lawyer to represent me since I have been summoned? They have my address listed on the summons as my daughter's address.

If you don't have insurance or they won't cover you for the claims, you will have to file a responsive pleading to avoid default judgment.
