Nearly 2 years ago rear ended someone . We waited at scene for around an hour waiting for tow trucks . The other party did not claim injury then , nor anytime in the next 22 months or so did I hear anything from this person regarding such . There were no tickets issued at the time . The other day I received correspondence from a lawyer regarding this accident . What type of attorney do I need to consult with regarding this matter ? I am aware that personal injury attorneys normally work on a contingency basis . As I am the one likely to be sued from what field of law do I need to attempt to hire an attorney ? Do personal injury lawyers also defend parties in lawsuits and if so , what type of fee ( ballpark figure ) might I be charged ? I believe this is a frivolous lawsuit . Someone seeking a payday .If this person that I rear ended had a legitimate injury shouldn't i have heard something prior to just before statute of limitations runs out? I realize if I were looking to sue someone as a result of a car accident I would contact a personal injury lawyer. When I am now being potentially victimized by someone who "suddenly" has I assume a back/neck injury from what field of law do I hire an attorney? Personal injury lawyers normally work on contingency fees so how would that work when defending someone from what is possibly a frivolous lawsuit? I hope someone can help. Thank you.
