A: A Wisconsin attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It's difficult to say what could happen. He could agree to accept all the responsibility with the other side, but he cannot control whether violations are issued for an uninsured vehicle - that's in the state's hands. If the other side agrees to not pursue you if they obtain recovery from your father-in-law, you will want the release to include you as well as your father-in-law as being released from all claims arising from the accident. You may want to consider briefly consulting with a Wisconsin attorney regarding the release form, to make certain it accomplishes this goal and protects both of you. Good luck
