Yes, if you had insurance at the time of the accident, then the insurer has a legal duty to provide legal representation to you if you are sued and try to settle any case for up to your policy limits.

.

If you have been sued, then you need to immediately contact your insurer and let them know so they can arrange to have an attorney represent you and them.
