Do I have to show for arbitration?

Question Details: My daughter rear-ended another car almost 4 years ago. I assume our insurance company paid since it was her fault. Then, about 9 months ago, we were notified that the other party was suing my daughter but had agreed to an arbitration. Our insurance company did provide a lawyer for her who is encouraging her to attend the arbitration next month. She now lives in another state and has no way to get back; she hasn't worked in 2 years. What would the ramifications be if she does not show? Can/would they attach her future wages?
