Lindsay Lohan claims she is not responsible for a paparazzo being hit by her car in 2010.
Lindsay Lohan claims she is not responsible for a paparazzo being hit by her car.
Photographer Grigor Baylan claims he was run over by a car being driven by Lindsay's assistant in January 2010 when the actress was trying to make a quick departure from a Hollywood nightclub but Lindsay insists it was his own fault.
Gossip website TMZ reports Lindsay claims Mr. Balyan ''carelessly put himself near a moving automobile'' and caused his own injuries and she shouldn't have to pay anything.
The photographer's lawyer, Neil Steiner, previously said that the actress was being targeted in the case because her assistant was at the wheel and operating under her Instruction.
Mr. Steiner said he had contacted Lindsay's insurance company to settle the claim but they only made an ''insignificant offer''.
The lawyer insisted he was only seeking ''reasonable compensation'' for his client, who received hospital treatment following the incident.
Lindsay has had a string of legal difficulties in recent years and had to carry out community service as part of her sentence for breaking her probation in relation to a 2007 DUI (driving under the influence) case.
A judge has yet to rule on this case.
