Many Debtors take the opportunity to maximize their fresh start in Chapter 7 bankruptcy and surrender a vehicle that they can no longer afford. While this may be of great benefit to the Debtor, these surrendered vehicles offer nothing but exposure to bankruptcy estates. This is especially true in states like Florida where vehicle owners are vicariously liable for the damages and injuries caused by a vehicle.
