Legal Question in Personal Injury in New York

I was involved i an automobile accident in 2008 whre I blacked out at the wheel and rear-ended someone which started a chain reaction. I was taking medication at the time, but none were narcotic, and there was no alcohol involved. My truck also flipped over onto another vehicle. I am being sued by 6 people, however only 2 for personal injury ( a man and his son). My insurance limits were 25,000/50,000 for personal injury., and I have a feeling that they will sue for much more than my insurance will pay. I am filing chapter 7 bankruptcy ( I have no assets), but I was told that I cannot include the personal injury into my filing because the case is still in litigation, and there has been no judgement yet. Is this true? What are my options? Isn't there any way that I can prevent them from coming after me later since I'm filing bankruptcy? Please help!
