Do I need to provide my insurance from the time of the accident.

I was operating my company vehicle at the time of the accident. The defendant is pursuing a lawsuit it appears personally. I no longer have the same insurance and I don’t have an attorney. I was said to be at fault because if the rules of the road. The plaintiff hit me at an accelerated speed and claimed she didn’t see me this because she was trying to drive and control her dog. I was making a left turn and she was driving straight. She never slowed down she just barreled into me. My former employer has not paid her I assume but the summons states that the other information is fictional. I assume that would be the employer and eyewitnesses.

If you are being sued personally, you will have to provide your personal insurance (if you had insurance; otherwise, if the plaintiff, or person suing you, wins, you will have to pay any judgment out of pocket, from your own money, if you did not have insurance coverage at the time). When Person A is drving a vehicle belonging to B and hits C, C may sue either or both of A and/or B. A driver who is at-fault is liable for the damage or injuries he causes, even if driving another's vehicle (or driving for work); the owner of the vehicle driven by an at-fault driver, or the employer of the at-fault driver (if the accident occured while driving for work) is also potential liable, and the injured or damaged party may choose which to sue.
