Collecting From Defendants Who Cannot Pay
Car accidents can have devastating physical, emotional, and even financial repercussions. Financially, not only do you have to deal with damage to your vehicle or property, but you may also accumulate high medical bills to treat your injuries. If your accident was caused by someone else’s negligent actions, you shouldn’t have to pay for these damages yourself. You may be entitled to compensation from the party at fault.
Unfortunately, even if you win your personal injury lawsuit, there are some instances where the defendant cannot afford to pay the financial compensation. If this happens to you, there are other options available to seek payment, and a qualified attorney can help you discuss your options.

What Are My Options?
In some cases, the defendant may not be able to pay you financial compensation right away if he or she has filed for bankruptcy or simply has other expenses. It is important to realize that despite this situation, you do not have to pay for damages yourself. If the defendant cannot afford to pay your financial compensation, you may be able to secure the funds through other methods, including:
- Wage garnishment
- Establishing a repayment plan over several months or even years
- Levy bank accounts
An attorney can guide you through this process so that you can collect the compensation you deserve.
