Ask the Atty,

I was involved in an accident on the highway, when a truck swerved into my lane and I started a three-car pileup. I didn't get a ticket for the accident but I just got a letter from a lawyer that I was getting sued. Is there anything that I should be aware of and should I be speaking to a lawyer myself?
