Lindsay Lohan is being sued for $16 000.

The actress is already facing legal troubles after her Porsche collided with a truck in California recently, and now a paparazzi has filed a lawsuit claiming she hit him with her vehicle in 2010.

Photographer Grigor Balyan initially filed his lawsuit in January, alleging he was struck by Lindsay's car while trying to photograph her outside a Los Angeles nightclub.

Documents seen by E! News say he is claiming $16 468 in medical expenses as well as suing for lost wages, general damages and property damage.

Lindsay was reportedly served with the complaint on Sunday and a judge has set a hearing for August 7.

The 25-year-old actress returned to work on her latest film, Liz And Dick, on Wednesday, sporting visible signs of her earlier road incident.

Website Celebuzz reported the star had “bumps and bruises from her car accident clearly visible on her knees”.

However, Lindsay's career is looking up, as on Tuesday it was announced she has been cast in new film The Canyons, alongside male porn star James Deen.

Writer of the film, Bret Easton Ellis, tweeted: “I am beyond thrilled that James Deen and Lindsay Lohan will be playing the parts of Christian and Tara in The Canyons. Could not have dreamed of a better cast.” - Bang Showbiz
