A: An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. You probably need to respond with a set period of time, which is probably included in the papers. You could reach out to a local collections defense attorney to review the summons and complaint and discuss your options. Your post does not mention the nature and amount of the lawsuit. If it is from an auto insurance carrier, one guess is that it is from their subrogation department, where they paid their policyholder on a loss and are now coming after you for it. But that's only a general guess. An attorney would be able to offer more meaningful guidance with additional facts. Good luck
