Yes, you can be sued. However, it would have to be proved that you were aware or had knowledge that your grandson was a negligent person and that you should never have signed because of that.So while you can be sued, it may not be a win for anyone.

I don't understand your statement that it may not be a win for anyone--please elaborate. Also if I thought he was a negligent person, I never would have co-signed. He just does not have any credit history which I was trying to help him establish.
I apologize for not being more clearWhat I mean is unless a person who sues you can prove that you knew he was reckless then they would not win against youHowever, I suggest that you will also want to be sure that his insurance is the best he can get with all the maximum coverage for bodily injury, etc.
