Q: I received a Default Request entry for a accident that happened in 2018. My former boss said he paid It off but didn’t

I don’t have insurance of my own to even know what to do. I don’t work for this medical transportation company. And I’m being sued for something I have nothing to do with I need to know what to do!?

A: How much is the alleged debt? The first thing you should do is NOT DEFAULT, if possible. From what you wrote here it looks like it may be too late. If you have a valid defense, there is a chance that default can be objected to or set aside. But you likely need to hire a lawyer to file the necessary documents. Again, the amount of the debt is important because if it's nominal, it may not make financial sense to hire a lawyer.
