What assets can be taken in a personal injury lawsuit?

Question Details:

I was involved in a accident where a pedestrian crossed against a signal and I hit her (in GA a pedestrian cannot be at fault). She is not happy with an insurance settlement and is attempting to "get all she can" through a lawsuit. If an asset check is done on me, what assets are they looking for? What can be taken in a lawsuit? I have 1 home (not completely paid for), 2 cars (paid for but not worth much), and a few retirement accounts.
