I am a lawyer in CT and practice in this area of the law. You can tel the person that is coming after you that they can take your payments that you can make or you will not pay and make the driver sue you. if the driver sues you and gets a judgment, you can then file for bankruptcy and get the judgment/obligation to pay discharged and you will not have to pay. the bankruptcy filing will hurt your credit for a few years but you will not owe the money. You can also try to get a loan from someone to pay the friver and then pay the person back over time to the stress.
