Can Bankruptcy erase an Accident Claim?

I live in Red Deer and got into a car accident driving my drunk buddy home. When the cops came I found out his insurance had expired. I am being sued and my lawyer thinks I am going to get tagged with some of it. This will likely be the tipping point for me as I am just scrapping by now. Another debt will make it impossible to handle my debt load and I am considering filing for bankruptcy. My Lawyer in Red Deer says that I will owe this debt even if I go bankrupt. Is this TRUE?
