A: The other car's Driver, Owner or Insurance Carrier, can all sue the other driver which caused the wreck. If your Father had Insurance then he should let them handle the Claim. If not, expect to at least have his License suspended for Lack of Financial Responsibility, and possibly other Rule of the Road Violations. You need to talk to a competent attorney about whether his Assets are vulnerable such as Real Property

or his Bank Account.
