Legal Question in Civil Litigation in Ohio

Judgment against a person who owns joint property

I was involved in an auto accident (my fault) in which another person was injured. She is suing me for an amount more than my insurance covers. I was driving a vehicle registered in my name only. Can a judgment be leveled against joint property owned by my husband and me?
