Lindsay Lohan and her chauffeur, Paola Demara, have been sued by a paparazzo named Grigor Balyan who claims that, on Jan. 10, 2010, he was injured when the actress’ vehicle ran over him outside of a club in Hollywood as he was trying to take pictures of the troubled star.

According to Balyan’s suit, filed yesterday in Los Angeles Superior Court, “Defendants, each of them, so negligently, carelessly, and recklessly operated, maintained, repaired, owned, and controlled their automobile so as to cause an accident which resulted in personal injuries and property damage to Plaintiff.”

Inside the court documents obtained by EW, the suit is marked as an “unlimited civil case,” which means that the damages Balyan is seeking exceed $25,000. He is suing Lohan for personal injury, property damage, and general negligence.
