I am separated from my wife and the vehicle she was driving was registered to my name. I asked her to register it in her name but she did not. She was recently involved in a car accident and she gave the people involved all of my information for recovering any damages. The other parties insurance company just sent me a letter for damages. What is my recourse since shouldn't they first seek to recover from the driver first before they seek recovery from me. I understand that I can be held liable for up to $5,000 in property damages since I was the registered owner, but shouldn't they seek recovery first from the driver before me?
