My mother is in a fender bender in April of 2014. She suffers

Customer Question

My mother is in a fender bender in April of 2014. She suffers no injury because of the accident but passes away in April of 2015. Possible lawsuit on the horizon from the person she rear-ended 2 years ago. As her son, what are my legal obligations in this matter? Her estate, what little there was, has already been dispersed. Is that fair game for a lawsuit?

Good afternoon. I am Loren, an Illinois licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you. My condolences for your loss.Did your mother carry auto insurance? Would the claim of the other party be within the policy limits? Has an estate been opened in probate?
