A: Your question is difficult because we have few facts. If it was a car accident then hopefully you have insurance and your insurance company will defend you by hiring a lawyer for you. If it was not a car accident then maybe you own a home and the insurance on your home may also cover you and pay for your lawyer. If you don't own a home and it was not a car accident then it was someother type of incident and unless you are quite wealthy it is unlikely that this person will find an attorney to represent him against you. If you get a letter from an attorney who is representing this person then you need to pay for a consultation with an attorney and find out your rights. Best of Luck.
