    Do you have your own auto insurance policy? If so, and you did not waive the uninsured motorist coverage, you may be able to recover under the uninsured motorist coverage provision of your own auto policy. In addition, you might be able to get your medical bills paid by the med pay portion of your policy.

    I'm not really clear on the facts since you say that the taxes are in his name, but the return was filed jointly. However, if they are in his name only, presumably you are not liable. If there is an income tax due on a return that was filed jointly you may very well be responsible. However, there are defenses you can raise to avoid payment. I think that it is important that you consult an attorney directly about this.

    There is no harm to you to give this person your insurance information and you should contact your insurance company immediately and discuss it with them. Do not discuss it further with anyone other than your insurer and/or attorney until the claim is resolved. It is your insurer's duty to protect your interests, and they will hire an attorney for you should you need one.

    It's impossible to value a personal injury case without seeing any available evidence re the accident itself, and all the medical records of the injured party. Even then, it's important to hear the other side's defense. Having said that, a soft tissue injury resulting in only three weeks of pt is not likely to be a large case. However, there may be factors involved that a layperson may not be aware of that could augment the recovery. It's never prudent to make these claims without the...

    Richard Ellie has given you a very good answer. As a general rule, whenever one gets a discharge in bankruptcy it does not remove the liability of a co-signer who has not been similarly discharged and the creditor may pursue the co-signer for the debt.

    You would sue her. Her insurance may or may not cover her but they will probably defend her against your claim. If you win and she is properly covered, the insurance company would pay - but none of that changes the fact that you sue her.

    Your attorney may be able to file a motion if the case was in litigation to begin with. If not, he would have to file suit. Fortunately, in Rhode Island there is a statute that requires such settlements to be paid within 30 days of receipt of their receipt of the release and provides for punitive damages if they do not comply.

    Student loans are not discharged merely by filing a Chapter 7 petition as they are priority debts. If all you did was file the petition and attend the 341 meeting you did not get them discharged. They are only discharged under special circumstances and if you file the proper pleadings to get them discharged.

    I'm not sure yet what's your question is but if you can prove were sideswiped you should be able to avoid the citation, and be able to pursue a claim for damages against your own uninsured motorist coverage.
