I have never been sued, so I am new at all of this. I also wrote a post in regards to my problem yesterday, but now I have another question. I was rear-ended in September 2006 which caused my car to be totaled out in the end. The driver that hit me had no insurance and had a medical condition called COPD which can be very dangerous, so he is a menace to be out on the road. He also hit another lady right before he slammed into the back of me. My car was only 4 months old, and since I didn't have uninsured motorist, it left me owing my finance company $7000.00 difference after my insurance paid. A friend suggested filing a third party suit against the person that hit me. Do you have any suggestions on how to go about filing? I live in Texas and need to handle this fairly quickly. Any advise suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
