Yes , of course you can. The demand is not limited by your insurance coverage . Anything above your coverage would come from his pocket.

Of course , he can be sued for more. Some lawyers sue the insurance, the driver, the vehicle manufacturer, and the city in charge of the streets just to make sure they have their bases covered.

Generally speaking , do not worry about it , unless driving drunk and stupid as the insurance will provide the necessary coverage and attorneys to represent you .

If the claim other drivers worth more than $ 100,000 then your insurance company will do everything possible to pay the limit and get the Mr. to sign a statement barring any future recovery of payment limits. Now you may not be NECC is suing him for more than 100,000 , Mr. defendant can only be because they can not reach an agreement with your company or your company did not find him guilty and Mr. believes he is to blame injuries to their customers and pain / suffering . You should call your claim manager immediately and inform them being sued . Care must be taken that from there . They should have an appropriate work Atty at that point. You may be advised if you need to hire a lawyer of himself though. But for now have contact with insurance, let them know you are being sued, and must be handled from there. But make sure reporting is to your business or if you have to hire a lawyer himself for any reason. There are certain cases where he may need one beyond what the insurance company offered as part of their service.

Of course, you can be sued for millions. The responsibility is yours. The screens of the insurance company to a customer in the customer's responsibility to pay, but ultimately it is your responsibility. Is yours.

This is just my opinion - I think a jury would not be as likely to grant more than what is insured . At least there is a difference between a jury giving away the money from the insurance company and giving away their money.
