    Default Lawsuit over car accident injury

    Hello my name is Carl, I was in an auto accident recently (i was found at fault) and my passenger and girlfriend (a minor) was injured and required medical attention. She went to the hospital and now a month later her moter has hired Bruce L Shiener a personal injury lawyer to Sue for medical expenses. The letter stated that i should fill out a portion and turn over to my insurance. I had full coverage and PIP worth 10,000 each person.
    2 questions is her mother able to sue me or the insurance i have?
    and does her daughter my girlfriend 17 have a say wether i am sued or not. Thank you

    Carl in Florida

    The suit is brought against you. You report the suit to your insurance company, which ostensibly defends you and indemnifies against the claim.

    Typically, a minor is not legally competent to bring a suit, so the mother will likely petition the court for authority to bring the suit on her behalf. That's a pro forma step, generally achieved without a court hearing.

    To the limits of your policy and contingent on your cooperation.
