    Kevin’s Answer

    You need to have an attorney review the operating agreement to determine what your rights are and responsibilities. You should also have an attorney review the dissolution agreement to see if it is including a release of any potential right you may have to recovery of monies owned by the entity. You should have that attorney negotiate a buyout for you if possible in Exchange for your signature

    Kevin’s Answer

    This situation arises all the time with scenarios where the insurance policy limit is insufficient to compensate fully the plaintive for the alleged medical bills lost wages pain and suffering etc. I would discuss with the attorney or perhaps of the separate attorney who can advise you as to the appropriateness of disclosing this information. I will tell you that quite often when thisis not disclosed then a lawsuit is filed or if a lawsuit has already been filed it does not resolve.
