I sustained very serious personal injury & a family member / lawyer is generously handling insurance / suit against other parties, though she hasn't expressed interest in suit against a direct and prominent party responsible for my injuries. While I know that I could hire a lawyer for a suit against this offender, I'm searching for advice in view of this person being a 3rd year undergraduate student at a public Massachusetts university. I'm aware that are methods by which the offender could terminate wage garnishment (e.g. bankruptcy), so essentially I'm wondering if it would / could be reasonably within my interest to hire a personal injury lawyer in this instance. Thank you!Thank you for your answers. Of course this is a complicated matter that could never fit into these submission boxes, but to clarify: my attorney is family, very busy & representing me on her own time, so she hasn't offered to sue the student / offender since that person doesn't have "serious money" & we've already taken their max auto insurance ($70,000, just a fraction of medical bills). But, I will mention ideas I receive here. Thanks again, I sincerely appreciate the feedback!
