I live in New York City and now the insurance company is suing me for 30,00$ in damages while the police report clearly does not state I was at fault. I stupidly ignored all letters to
appear in court and now I received a letter stating that my license will be suspended.
I am on a $15,000 salary and no where near being able to send pay in full or make payment plans. Is it best I just file for bankruptcy.
Personal Injury Lawyer
You may also want to consult with a litigation attorney who can file an Order to Show Cause to vacate the default judgment against you. Even if your insurance 'expired' a few hours before the accident, there is still a formal process an insurance company has to follow to properly cancel your policy. If they failed to do so, you may still be covered. Good luck!
I suggest you consult a bankruptcy attorney. You can let that attorney assess all of your debts, including but not limited to the default judgment against. Once she does that you can make a decision as to the best route to take. Good Luck,
