Have Traffic Law Questions? Ask a Traffic Lawyer Online.
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Here are the rules: In New York State, a creditor can garnish the lesser of 10% of your gross wages or 25% of your disposable income to the extent that this amount exceeds 30% of minimum wage.
New York Income Execution (Wage Garnishment) Law
Your remedy here to stop this is to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy and then advise the school that you have done so.There is an automatic stay in Chapter 7 and this would allow you to discharge the debt.Otherwise NY allows garnishment of wages as set out above.

Here is an accurate response below to your situation.
You should consider a lawyer here.If you have insurance you should consider reporting it, they would cover any medical from the pedestrian.If you think they were injured this protects you, the insurance also has to defend you if you are sued.
