Yes!

The whole point of cosigning a loan, from the lender's perspective, is that they have 2 people on the hook for the loan in the event it goes sour.

If the person stops making payments (bankruptcy or not), they will come after the cosigner, making the cosigner wish he/she had never, ever cosigned.

What legal recourse is there for the cosigner when the person that was cosigned for has defaulted on the loan?

The usual legal recourse for the cosigner when the person named as the primary on a loan has defaulted, is to make the payments on the loan. Then, the cosigner can take the person who defaulted to court to try and recoup some of the money they are out. If the loan was for a car, some states allow the cosigner to take possession of the car and sell it to recoup losses also.
