I got a summons today in tha mail for a car accident I had back in October of 2003. I didn't stop in time and hit the car in front of me, and then I was also hit from behind. Which totalled my car. The vehicle I hit was a van and had very little damage (from what I remember). My car was totalled being crushed in between. Anyways, I guess the lady that I hit is sueing me (and the person behind me) for $1,000,000. It says she suffered "serious injury", and has sustained a great economic loss as defined in the NYS Insurance law. These injuries are or anticipated to be permanent nature, which will hurt her daily life and such. The husband of the plaintiff, also says that he has been "denied the society, companionship, service & relationship with his wife" because of my accident. He's sueing for $200,000. I mean, I would really feel bad if I did cause her any serious injuries, but I remember her to be the first one gettin' out of her vehicle, and asking if I was OK. There was also a child with her, and there is no mention of him in the summons. What kind of injury could she of had had? And why am I gettin this almost a year and a half later (does it take that long to process?) The date recieved is March 27th 2006, so I think it was just filed. I have never been in any legal situations like this. What do you guys think, and Any information would be helpful thanks.
