A: An Illinois attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. Notify your insurance carrier of the lawsuit. Make a copy of the papers that you were served with - your insurance company will probably want the originals after you send them some preliminary scans of the summons and complaint. Your carrier will request your cooperation in their investigation, depositions, etc. They will provide you with additional details on what you need to do. If there is a statute of limitations issue, it's the first thing they'll raise in your defense. Good luck
