    He should get a lawyer. I assume that he has insurance so if that is the case the insurance company normally will provide a defense. This is not a workers compensation question, but more of a personal injury issue so I will change your category to get some other answers from personal injury attys in Calif.

    The insurance company for the driver that is sued is responsible for providing a defense and covering damages or settlement of the case up to the policy limits of liability. If the driver of the vehicle that caused the accident was negligent and the damage award exceeds the insurance policy amounts then the driver can be personally liable.

    Settlement in Colorado is based on a number of factors that usually have to do with what the insurance company thinks they will have to pay. I would urge you to talk to a workers compensation atty to have them evaluate your case. I can give you the name of someone there or discuss it with you if you want.
