I am sorry to hear about this situation. The answer is yes. A party that is at fault in a vehicular accident may be sued, indeed.
The issue is that since they did not have insurance, they would have to be pursued for the Judgement. They may or may not have enough to even cover the judgment. A party can enforce judgment by:
-levying a bank account
-placing a lien on titled property
-attachment and sale of non-exempt assets.
The citation helps to establish their liability although in the end, the Judge/Jury make a decision.
