in most states the taxes are part of the property damage settlement. If they are at fault and car is totaled, chances are it was a big hit and you were hurt. The other side isn't caring for you. Contact a member of the Mo. Assn for Justice for the county where it happened. They give free consults.

I. Don't agree it is your obligation. It may be but it may not be. 2) Help them locate your ex--if you get sued you need to sue him for "contribution," 3) find out what the claim is for. If it's for property damage only, and they give you a FULL release of ALL claims including... Read more »
