I am not asking for legal advice, for the record. I am hoping to settle an arguement.
My sister-in-law is the owner of a car. My wife is the co-signer on the car note(car loan).
Last week my sister-in-law as involved in an accident. She is automaticaly at fault as she was DUI.
My mother-in-law insists that my wife is in danger of being held liable for damages incurred by the person my wife’s sister hit, as she is co-signer on the car.
My wife lives in another state.
My wife is not involved in any way with the accident.
The only reason my wife is in this discussion at all is that she is the co-signer for the car loan.
Can the woman my sister-in-law hit sue my wife and claim damages from us?
(you are not my lawyer, consult a real lawyer, etc. etc… yes. I know all of that. I’m just trying to figure out if it’s something we need to do at this time. Thanks!)
