AnnaLynne Sued Over Fender Bender

| Filed under: Legal MattersAnnaLynne McCord

About two years ago, AnnaLynne McCord smacked the front end of her Mini-Cooper into the back of another car in El Lay.

The other driver has now filed a lawsuit against the 90210 actress, claiming he was severely injured in the wreck, prompting several surgeries to fix his neck, back and shoulder.

We have no doubt that the accident was AnnaLynne's fault (she doesn't have the best track record with this Mini-Cooper), but we also call into question why it took this guy two years to come forward with a lawsuit.

The court documents don't specify how much money he is after, but we do know the damages include wage loss and medical expenses. Was he waiting for those to accumulate to a hefty enough sum before striking? Or is something fishy going on?

Either way, time to lawyer up, BB!

    Hmm. But doesn't it seem logical to wait until you know what the final cost of the damage is before you sue the person responsible for that damage?

    Statute of limitations is two years- most likely, they were trying to settle, and when that didn't happen within two years, they had to file the lawsuit in order to have a good claim.

    Before someone files suit for injuries sustained in a car accident, they usually attempt to negotiate with your insurance company first to avoid the cost of litigation. The statute of limitations to file suit for negligence, however, is 2 years in most jurisdictions (I assume California has the same limit). What probably happened is that the injured party's attorney couldn't come to an agreement with the insurance company, so they filed suit before the statute of limitations ran.

    Also, AnnaLynne won't have to actually pay any money out of pocket (assuming her policy limits are high enough). Her attorney is paid for by the insurance company. When you are sued for injuries sustained in a car accident, your car insurance carrier pays for and handles your defense for you, including any settlement or any judgment against you if it goes to trial.

    One final note - the plaintiff wouldn't be sitting around waiting for lost wages and medical expenses to "rack up" before filing suit. Even if you file suit before you're done treating for your injuries, you CAN sue for future medical expenses and future loss of wage earning capacity.

    Perez, I love you, but please don't speculate about how the legal system works. (I'm an attorney, and I practice in this area [called insurance defense], albeit not always related to car accidents.)

    SOL in CA is the typical 2 years; also, here in CA you are not allowed to specify damages in a Complaint for personal injuries (you serve a separate statement of damages, if requested by the Defendant or if you want to eventually take a default). This story is really NOT a story. CorpitosTX is correct on all points.

    It's not uncommon for people to wait right before the statute of limitations runs before filing the lawsuit.

    The injured person has probably been *treating for injuries* this whole time if they were as severely injured as they claim. Their attorney was probably waiting for them to finish treating before making a demand. The passing time is not suspicious.
    A lot of times (not sure about this incident) statutes are protected & start from the last med payment is made, so they are protected.

    So no, *waiting* to slap her with the lawsuit isn't suspicious.
    But suing a rich celebrity who surely had adequate insurance coverage is.
