Today I got served a summons naming myself and UPS as defendants in a suit because of an accident in a package car 18 months ago. The plaintiffs still live on my route and this is really rattling my cage as this is Saturday and I wont be able to talk to anyone at UPS until Monday. I rear ended the woman (alone) on December 20th, 2005 at very low speed. She is suing me and UPS and her husband is suing me and UPS and all four counts are " in excess of $50,000 and they demand a trial by jury. Has this ever happened to anyone else? I've never had anything like this happen to me or even be in trouble with the law before and I don't know what to expect. Do I need to have my own lawyer or will UPS represent me as well since I was on duty and in a package car at the time? This sue happy world really ticks me off as people see what they think is just an easy way to create wealth. The lady didn't even go to the hospital and now 18 months later this. If anybody can tell me something that would calm my nerves I would appreciate it.
