It is the Secretary of State, not a collection agency that will revoke your driving privileges if you had no proof of financial responsibility when you were the at-fault driver in an accident.
You must contact the insurance company who is trying to get their money back and try to arrange a repayment schedule or your license will be revoked.
If you have insurance and there was no express exclusion that covers your situation, it will cover the loss, less any deductible. Write a certified letter to your insurance company demanding that it pay pursuant to your policy and copy the letter to the Illinois Department of Insurance; 100 W. Randolph St., Suite 15-100 Chicago, IL 60601-3251
If you are saying that you prosecuted a case against a hospital on behalf of of your son and that the money was placed in a trust account by the probate judge, it is possible for you to access that money by petitioning the court. You need to contact the attorney who represented you and your son in the initial action or you can call the clerk's office and complete a form on your own.
The more money that is in the account, the more reasonable your request, and the more directly it will...
As Mr. Hoffman indicates, jeopardy has attached with regard to any criminal action. He can still be sued in a civil action though the liklihood of recovery is not good. Did you hire an attorney to identify other responsible parties, at the time?

2. If your husband had STD or LTD, notify the carrier to start paying benefits.
3. You CANNOT take the $100,000.00 from your own policy unless you GIVE your insurance the right to sue the at-fault driver. Given the choice between taking a check for $100,000.00 and spending money to sue a deadbeat is a no-brainer unless he is an absent-minded...
If you were not injured, you do not need an attorney. That said, if the accident was not your fault, you should make that clear to your insurance. If the accident was your fault, that's okay too. After all, that is why we buy insurance.

I am terribly sorry for your loss. The case is worth more money but it is not worth more than 133% of what you have been offered. For your own peace of mind, you may wish to have one of us review the documentation that you have so long as the attorney is willing to do that without any cost or obligation to your family. It is my strong suspicion that the best advice, after review, will be to try to negotiate a bit more and then accept the best offer you can negotiate. Again, I am sorry for...
