What if you are in a car wreck with no insurance and the other driver is at fault?

What if you are in a car wreck with no insurance and the other driver is at fault?Doesn’t matter at all. You are required to have insurance and the fact that the other driver may be responsible does not protect you at all.

If you are in an accident and the other driver says you were at fault does this mean your car will not be repaired by your or their insurance?

No, if you have the right coverage (collision) your company will still pay for your car.

What happens if you have no insurance but the other driver was at fault?

No Insurance, But Other Driver at FaultGenerally, the same thing that would happen if you did have insurance. Albeit every state has different insurance laws, fault is not determined by who has or does not have insurance. This is a common mistake. However, all states have penalties for driving uninsured and in most states, they can be severe. Penalties such as license suspension, strong fines, road squad assignments, etc. This is in addition to the enhanced cost of your insurance. But, this is true whether you have an accident or not; simply being pulled over for any traffic disturbance will have the same result. And if you did cause the accident? Oh, man…. Here are more opinions and answers from other FAQ Farmers: .
In the cases where the other driver was at fault, they (or their insurer) should pay. However, YOU will have to submit the claim to their insurance carrier. And their carrier will say they are not going to pay because yada-yada-yada. So then you have to sue. In most jursidictions, each driver will collect from their own insurance company and the companies take care of all the nasty stuff. .
I was just in an accident and instantaneously began calling attorneys. Get an attorney, and don’t just treat it yourself. Attempt to go for a traffic law attorney and claim for individual injury. Whatever you do don’t give a statement to the insurance company and don’t let them talk to anyone but your attorney. They may seem nice, but they aren’t your friend, and you indeed can view yourself as the enemy toward them. I was told the insurance adjuster would be out there by today, and they still haven’t come. The car accident happened almost a week ago and my car is sitting out in a lot uncovered with the interior exposed. Get insurance if you can, even liability, because at least you’ll have help from an insurance company that’s willing to deal with the issues for you. In most cases, the other party will pay for your vehicle damages -IF- their insurance company accepts liability. That is a function of whether or not the other person admits liability, if there is a police report in your favor, or if there are witnesses to the accident that support the contention that the other party was at fault. Some states have a “no pay, no play” law which bars people from suing for non-economic damages if they are uninsured but that restricts ache and suffering type of claims. Not auto damages. If the adverse insurance company denies liability, should you get an attorney? That depends on the facts of the case. It is not always in your best interest to get an attorney involved. If you are injured, you should get an attorney. If you are just attempting to recover your vehicle damages, there are more cost effective/time effective options. Getting an attorney for auto damages only WILL BE COUNTERPRODUCTIVE for a number of reasons. 1.) it would be hard to find a lawyer to take such a case because the money is too puny. Two.) a lawyer would never actually take this kind of case to court because it would cost more to go to court than the entire claim is worth. Instead the attorney would attempt to negotiate the claim and take a diminished settlement so they don’t have to go to court. This is going to mean less money for youTrio.) the attorney is going to take a third of the diminished settlement they collect further reducing the money you get. Four.) when an attorney gets involved in an insurance claim, it sets off warning signals to insurance adjusters and the claim is treated differently. namely the insurance company is going to hire and attorney to deal with your attorney and the entire process is going to be drug out over years. In the end, you are going to wait a truly long time to get a disappointing settlement.

Believe it or not insurance compaines are fair and they do investigations to determine liability. If they don’t they can get in trouble with the Dept. of Insurance. If the other drivers carrier found you over 50% at fault it is most likely because you have some liability too. Were you speeding ? Were you inattentive ( on a cellphone, etc )? Could you not tell them your side of the story ? If so, and despite the fact the adverse driver ran the light they owe it to their client not to pay you 100%. Your carrier would also do an investigation to detremine what percentage they would pay of the advers drivers harm – it may or may not be the same as the other carrier is paying you.

Most insurers are indeed going to want a police report before they pay. I suspect that the possessor of the car is going to find some way of getting their car immobile.

They can file a police report, but usually the police want both parties to be present.

Will auto insurance cover an accident if one is at fault however the driver in the other vehicle is not the possessor of that car and is not on that car’s insurance policy?

Response .
Yes, your auto insurance will payout to the other party involved in the accident. Your auto policy covers “you” from any financial loses. So in retrospect you wont have to pay the damages you caused to the other veichle..
Concerning the party that is not the possessor nor on the car owners policy, the car proprietor’s auto policy covers the car and any lawful driver aslong as their were no “misrepresentation” on the insurance application/contract. By misrepresentation I mean, at the moment the car possessor signed the application and contract he was to state any material facts that could switch the underwriting decision such as premiums. For example, if the car holder has a son who will also drive the car, the car holder is obligated by law to diclose that to the insurance company. In the event that an accident occurs and a “undisclosed driver” was operating the veichle the insurance has Two options. 1. He can Void the policy/contract and not cover the auto proprietor. or Two. He can cover the auto possessor and payout damages but later sue in a court a law that amount and underpayed premiums for the time the policy was active and the undiclosed driver was operating the car..
Note” In uncommon cases, an insurance company will cover the “undisclosed driver” aslong as the difference in the premium is paid.

Is the at fault drivers insurance responsible for securing a rental car?

Insurance Claims and Rental Cars “No”, The insurer is not responsible for securing you a rental car, albeit they may owe you compensation for the costs. Some may assist you in making arrangements or locating a a rental car agency for you as a courtesy. The Rental car company makes its own policies as to whom they will rent a vehicle and whom they will not. The insured can not compel a rental car company to provide you a rental vehicle. You will have to qualify for the rental car yourself. The at fault party insurer can be required to “Reimburse” you for certain expenses incurred due to a loss of use of your vehicle, but “NO”, they don’t have to rent a car for you. It may, however, do so as a matter of good business and to engender good will. The question also calls into play the elements of damages to which you may be entitled as a victim of someone else’s negligence. If your car was rendered bruised so as to have lost the use of it (either permanently or while undergoing repair), “loss of use” damages are part of your recoverable damages. That is, you ordinarily have a claim against the adverse party not just for the repair cost of your car, but also for the loss of use of it. In many states, that element of damages is recoverable whether or not you actually rent a improvised substitute vehicle. If your car was rendered a “total loss” as a result of a collision that was not your fault, you are likewise entitled to “loss of use” damages, and they can be measured by the reasonable cost to rent a like kind and quality aitomobile. However, in the case of a total loss, your right to loss of use damages (for example, a rental vehicle) may terminate when the adverse party, or his/her insurer pays you the actual cash value of your car (because you are thereby deemed to have been made entire).

In the case of one State or Province having one insurance company this is often done to lodge claims swifter and dual end the cost to two drivers or two insured parties.

Albeit you will be roped into this, it should be inbetween the insurance company and the assets shop. If the insurance company won’t budge ask the repair shop to pick up the remainder of the rental bill until repairs are accomplish. This is common in this industry.

Status as an insured on an auto policy is generally tied to a specific auto that is insured under the policy.

Non-owners coverage is a type of auto insurance that “goes after you”, in that it provides coverage regardless of the car that you are driving, and which presumes that you do not own a vehicle. Since your car was “totalled”, until and unless it is repaired and you get a “rebuilt title” for it, you fall into the category of not possessing that vehicle any longer.

If the other party had insurance that pays for the repair of the other car, and/or pays uninsured motorist benefits (for bodily injuries) can sue you under a theory of law called “subrogation”.

Can i collect on both sides my insurance and the faulted drivers insurance i have a lien holder on my car a?

No, you can’t. When you collect from your insurance company, they will pursue the other driver’s insurance because the accident wasn’t your fault. When your insurance company finds out that you collected from the other insurance company already, they will come after you. It’s called double-dipping and it most likely wouldn’t end well.
