If I have only 50,000 dollars in the bank. And nothing else , could I be sued as co signer of a car should I get in an accident while driving it.
How much money you have in the bank is irrelevant, but can motivate a Plaintiff. You might want to make sure you have adequate insurance to protect yourself, generally.
What is relevant are potential theories of liability.
If you are driving a vehicle and get into an accident, you may be sued.
This nothing to due with getting sued. That is based on the relationship to the car ownership and the accident event. You will need to HIRE a lawyer to review your purchase agreement, title and insurance coverage to address that issue.
