Lindsay Lohan hit with new lawsuit and tax lien
Wed, 11 Jan 2012 2:58p.m.
The New Year has brought Lindsay Lohan new legal and financial woes - she has been hit with a lawsuit from an injured paparazzo and a tax lien within days of each other.
The troubled star spent much of 2011 fighting legal woes and is still serving community service she was handed last year for a probation violation - and it looks like 2012 will be another 12 months of problems for her.
On Tuesday, TMZ.com obtained a new legal claim against Lohan from a snapper who claims he was injured when a car driven by the star's assistant hit him while he was trying to photograph the Mean Girls star as she left a Hollywood club two years ago.
Grigor Balyan's lawyer, Neil Steiner, claims he subsequently attempted to settle the incident with Lohan's insurance company - but they only made "an insignificant offer".
Steiner tells TMZ.com he is seeking "reasonable compensation" for his client, who was treated for orthopaedic and neurologic injuries following the alleged accident.
Meanwhile, the actress also has a new US$93,700 headache - officials at America's Internal Revenue Service are chasing her for tax she allegedly failed to pay in 2009.
According to documents filed in Los Angeles the IRS tax men have obtained a lien against Lohan for not paying her federal income tax.
The bad news comes just days after Lohan landed a new modelling contract with French Connection. She is also in talks to portray the young Dame Elizabeth Taylor in a new movie.
