I have recently recieved a letter letting me know that I am being sued for $6000 for an accident that happend 3yrs ago. The Plaintiff claims that he had to pay close to $5000 to fix his car and the other $1000 for medical bills. At the time of the accident the streets were wet. Both the plaintiff and I were at a stop light. The light turned green and the car in front of me started to move except he abruptly stopped and I rear ended him. I was given ticket that I pre- paid, I was not charged with wreckless driving. The accident did not cause any major damage to my car or his car. How can he sue for $6000?
