Customer Question

i was in involved in a rear ending accident and am now being sued along with my insurance company as well as the other persons insurance company. The other driver had some injuries and needed physical therapy but is suing for an amount that is far about my bodiy injury limits and her own insurance covers underinsured drivers and they wont pay her what she wants either. so we are all being sued. My question is this: I do not work, I have several health conditions that prevent me from working. If she obtains a judgment against me how will that work?

Thank you for your question.

Where did the accident occur?

In which State do you reside?

Did you notify your insurer about the lawsuit?

If so, did your insurer agree to provide a defense attorney?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
the accident occurred at a stop light
The state of Indiana
Yes the were notified and are named in the lawsuit as well the other drivers insurance company
and yes they have agreed to provide council
However I haven't heard much from them, I only got a written questionnaire that served as my deposition. I filled it out and returned it to them and I haven't heard anything else. I sent an email 2 weeks ago and haven't gotten a response. the court date is Oct. 3 and I am getting very nervous. Since I do not work my husband is concerned they can use him to get money from me by making him pay any judgement or make him access his annuity money to pay a judgement.
