Lohan Settles 2005 Accident Case
February 23, 2008 ( by Otto Smyth)
According to Ehline Law Los Angeles personal injury attorneys firm, in 2005 Lindsay Lohan was involved in an accident in her Mercedes-Benz with Raymundo Ortega, a busboy who was driving a van at the time the accident occurred.
The California Highway Patrol investigation showed that Ortega had made an illegal U-turn causing the accident. His attorney brought the case stating that Lohan at the time was in flight from the paparazzi that were following her as well as under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.
In the suit Ortega and his attorney Robert G. Klein were asking the court for an amount of $200,000 in damages.
It has been reported that the case was settled Wednesday; there was however no report of the amount of damages that have been paid to Ortega for this 2005 accident that Lindsay Lohan was involved. There also has not been any comment from her attorney David J. Ozeran or her publicist Leslie Slone-Zelinik according to reports.
