Fourteen months ago, I was involved in a motorcycle crash where the at-fault driver failed to stop at a red arrow lef-turn-light. The medical bills alone amount to about $100,000, but the liable driver's insurance policy maxes out at $15,000 for bodily injury. I did not carry uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.
My attorney says a background check on her did not reveal any assets they could go after in a personal injury lawsuit. In a personal questionnaire that my attorney had her fill out via the insurance company, she also stated that she does not have any assets and is basically broke and about to file bankruptcy.
Are there any other options for me to make sure if she has any assets to go after? Or should I accept the meager settlement offer and forfeit the right to sue?
