Today my husband was served and I with a summons we need to respond in 30 days. This “accident” happened back in October 2015. My husband was driving and we crossed a light waiting in light for traffic this lady in from of us got out of her car and said that my husband hit her in the back and we didn’t. The thing is that we were on our way to pick up our son from school. We told we’ll be right back. We picked up our son and we came back. She had called the police and left in an ambulance.. I haven’t heard anything since this accident until today.. what do this papers mean and am I at risk of loosing my home? Do I need a lawyer or is the car insurance not paying? I have no idea where to to go for advice besides here.
You should provide your insurance company with a copy of the lawsuit.
