Sued

What is Sued?

Sued is If you are sued, this means that a third party has commenced legal proceedings against you for redress. For example, a third party may commence legal proceedings against you because your actions or negligence caused injury or property damage or financial loss to them. If you are sued, you may need to respond to the complaint in court and depending on the judgement you may be required to pay an amount to that person (called damages) for redress. You would usually hire a lawyer to defend your case. Defending a lawsuit and paying damages can be very expensive. Liability insurance is taken to protect you against this type of claim.
