Talk to more personal injury attorneys. While this man may have nothing today, tomorrow he could win the lottery, inherit money or a number of other things that could help pay for a judgment.
I agree with my colleagues -- a judgment proof defendant is no good.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
You can, but it may be throwing good money after bad. In addition to continuing to call personal injury lawyers, you can also look into the status of and/or the possibility of initiating safety responsibility proceedings if your insurance company hasn't already done so.
Unfortunately, there is no quick fix for the fact that you don't have a car. That is unfortunately the risk you take when you choose to run without full coverage. Good luck.
