You may not have anything right now from which to cover an award by a judge or jury

However I believe they can put a lien on anything of value you obtain later …. more valuable vehicles, bank accounts, property, etc. Whatever would be acquired by you. It seems oftentimes what eats up a person’s estate is the “pain and suffering” that is awarded in a lawsuit and not always covered by automobile insurance. I am no lawyer and I don’t play one on TV … maybe someone here will correct me if I am wrong.
