I have been injured, or for some other reason I am filing an insurance claim or a
lawsuit against someone else. How will that be affected by my filing bankruptcy?

There will probably be very little affect on your lawsuit. The attorney who represents you in the lawsuit will need to get permission from the Bankruptcy Court before continuing, but that is a very simple procedure. I have done it several times. If your share of the settlement (after paying fees and expenses) is more than $7,500.00, then you may have to turn some of it over to the Trustee to pay your bills, which is probably what you were going to do with it anyway.
