The Other Party Claims They Have No Money; Can I Still File a Claim?

It is not uncommon for people to claim they have no money and no assets to deter the injured person from filing a claim against them. If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you should consider all your options before you forgo taking legal action against the liable person. You may be able to file a claim with their insurance company provided they have insurance. Their insurance policy may be able to compensate you, up to the policy limits, even if they have no money or assets to speak of.

You have a legal right to compensation even if the liable person has no insurance. This means you can file a lawsuit against the person to be awarded your damages. Once you file a personal injury lawsuit, you or your attorney can request information and evidence from the liable person in the process of discovery. Typically, if the defendant claims they have no money to pay the judgment, they will be asked to produce proof of their income and financial standing. At this point, false claims may be debunked.

If the person does not have the cash readily available to pay you, you have a few options you can pursue to collect your judgment. You may be able to garnish their wages or their bank accounts to satisfy your judgment. You may also be able to place a lien on their property. If the liable person does not have insurance, you can file a claim with your own insurance company and your policy will pay out your claim if you have an insurance policy that can cover your losses, such as uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage.

Consult with an experienced Georgia personal injury attorney if you’ve been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence and have questions or concerns about how you will be compensated. If the liable person is claiming that he or she has no money or assets, make sure you get the advice of an attorney. Even if the liable person does not have the resources to pay you, an attorney can advise you of your other options to compensation and may be able to help you collect an unsatisfied judgment.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
