The defendant(s) would be considered to be "judgment proof" (legal term execution proof). This means the person has not property that can be seized nor wages or bank account(s) that can be garnished by creditors for repayment of the debt. It is not uncommon for a lawsuit defendant to be "judgment proof", the creditor can still record the judgment in hopes that the debtor will not always remain in his present economic status.

If someone sues you, you will need to hire an attorney. An attorney can represent you in a court and make sure your best interests are served.

if you owe money to someone or a company they will come after you to pay, this is your obligation to do so, so yes they can sue you for monies owed plus interest and court costs.

Yes, but you need to prove damages and you need proof that this person or people are harassing you. Hard to do but it happens every day where someone goes to court and successfully sues someone for harassment.

What someone sues you for rarely has anything to do with how much insurance you have. As a practical matter, the plaintiff will rarely go after the personal assets of a tortfeasor, unless there are social issues involved (dui) or the defendant has large assets and the injuries are very serious. no. they can sue for future earnings as well.

Once a collection agency sues a person they may have to get an attorney and go to court to settle this. The agency wants you to pay the money you owe them however they can get you to do it.

"Sue" is an old word. It means "ask". So when someone "sues" you in court he/she is just asking the court to award them some of your money or other resources. That can be in any state so long as there are courts.

Not in the book, no. Someone of that name may be added to the movie by the producers and/or directors, if they are un-detailed dodos like the people who made the Eragon movie-pah! to them-, or there may be someone who is playing a character in the movie by that name, but no, there are no 'mary sues' in the books.

An LLC (Limited Liability Corporation) is one of the easiest to form and is ideal for a single-proprieter business model. This will protect her personal assets from the business if someone ever sues the business.

If ht person you hit presses charges, or sues you, then you go to jail if you can't pay the fine.

I guess she tries to collect from the drunk's insurance or sues the drunk and or the boyfriend. If the drunk has no insurance or money, or the boyfriend has no money I think you have your answer. If she has her own medical insurance, she could probably use that.

Unfortunately, no. In this particular instance, Jane is not in the correct sentence structure to "sues" anybody. Instead, Jane should attempt to sue Jim, so as to follow the guidelines of proper grammar.

A medical malpractice case is a case in which someone sues someone for medical reasons.An example of one would be if the surgeon amputated the wrong foot and the patient sued them.
