My mother hit a woman crossing the highway in front of her house. The lady's family came out and threatened my mother. The lady was crossing in 6 o'clock traffic, about 100 yards from a crosswalk, across 5 lanes of traffic. The woman was found to be under the influance of alcohol. She was injured pretty bad, has had surgery and is still hospitalized. My mother has been having nightmares and is scared to death, she somehow feels responsible. Can she be sued? Her home is the only thing of value she has. Would she be able to declare bankruptcy if she were sued?
