If you obtained a default judgment against an insurance company then you can certainly pursue satisfaction of the judgment. However, the carrier will attempt to get the default set aside.

The carrier will then assert as a defense its insured’s failure to submit the suit to it.
THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE - NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE ATTACHES - FOR INFORMATION ONLY. DO NOT RELY ON ANY ADVICE YOU RECEIVE FROM ME OR ANY OTHER ATTORNEY IN THIS FORUM. Legal advice ONLY comes after a complete review of the facts and relevant documents and an expressed (written) agreement of representation that forms attorney-client confidentiality. Neither of these two events can occur in this forum. Answers to any Avvo question are rooted in general legal principles - NOT your state's specific laws. There is no implied or actual attorney-client relationship arising from this educational exchange. You should speak with an attorney licensed in your state, to whom you have provided all the facts before you take steps that may impact your legal rights.
It would probably be worth you time and even a little money to consult with an attorney to explore your options. I hope you get your money. Judgments are usually hard to collect.
