Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan is being sued by a paparazzi photographer.
Grigor Baylan is taking legal action against the actress after he was run over when she was trying to make a fast departure from a Hollywood nightclub - despite the fact she wasn't driving the car.
The photographer's lawyer, Neil Steiner, told gossip website TMZ that the actress is being targeted in the case because her assistant was at the wheel and operating under her instruction.
Steiner said he had contacted Lindsay's insurance company to settle the claim but they only made an "insignificant offer".
The lawyer insisted he is only seeking "reasonable compensation" for his client, who was medically treated for orthopaedic and neurologic injuries following the incident, which took place on January 10 2010.
Lindsay has had a string of legal difficulties in recent years and is currently carrying out community service as part of her sentence for breaking her probation in relation to a 2007 DUI (driving under the influence) case.
However, she was praised at a recent hearing for the way she has behaved and got on with her court-ordered work after previously being reprimanded for not fully carrying out her punishments.
The Mean Girls star is next scheduled to appear in court on January 17 for a status hearing over her probation.
