Maybe. Many judgments for negligence can be discharged under the bankruptcy code. However, there are some injuries and damages judgments that cannot be discharged, which include certain claims for injuries and damages resulting from reckless conduct and grossly negligent conduct. Alcohol related drunk driving accident injury and damage judgments and punitive damage judgments are not dischargeable. Accordingly, drunk driving lawsuit judgments are an important example of a judgment obtained that cannot be bankrupted out of.
