What happens to a person at fault for a car accident with no insurance if it is not their car?
It’s possible that the car owners insurance will cover the damages, but just as likely that it won’t. If it doesn’t, then the driver of the car will be fully responsible for any and all damages and will most likely end up being sued in court to recover the monies owed. It’s for this reason that all states require drivers to have uninsured motorist coverage on their insurance. .
In the UK three figures are likely to be responsible for paying compensation for harm and individual injury as a result of the accident: the driver of the vehicle, the holder of the vehicle’s insurer (if that person had skill that the other was driving his vehicle) and the Motor Insurer’s Bureau. The driver of the vehicle will also be prosecuted in criminal law for driving without valid motor vehicle insurance. For a description of motor vehicle insurance and the MIB – please see the related link.
What happens if a car accident was not your fault but you were driving a friend’s car that was insured by liability insurance?
I believe if, before the accident, you are listed as a driver on the insurance policy, then you are permitted to drive the vehicle too. If so, then the car at fault is at fault. If you are not listed as a driver, then your friend could be at fault if he gave you permission to drive the car. If he did not give you permission to drive the car, then you could be held liable. Liability covers only the other car, unless you have uninsured motorist insurance included, then your car is also covered if the at fault driver has no insurance, if you are listed as a driver. If the car at fault has no insurance what-so-ever, then they could be at fault because they should not even be on the road if your state requires minimal liability insurance. You can call any insurance company to find out, and remain anonymous if you would like, and if they will tell you. Or you can call a lawyer who gives free consults to find out. I would suggest that you very first look up your state laws (regarding automotive insurance requirements for your state, if it has any). Then go from there. State laws may vary!

He will be left with a wrecked car! He will also have to pay for damages to any other vehicle(s) involved in the accident. However it can vary from country to country, but in the UK, not having Car Insurace is illegal, so the uninsured driver would be a bit screwed! I think in the UK you can even end up serving a short-term jail sentence for repeatedly dodging insuring your car. I’m not 100% tho’. Even if the the insured driver is at fault – the uninsured driver will be left paying for the mess himself – and will have to fix the car with his own money. But if you live in the US – then this could be downright different.
What happens if you have no car insurance and you have an accident?
If the collision was your fault, even if you had no insurance, you are still theoretically liable for the harmless party’s damages. He/she may make a decision that even in the absent of insurance, they will make a claim against you, You can either resolve the claim voluntarily, or wait to see if they will file a lawsuit against you. If a lawsuit is filed, you must defend it, yourself or with the help of a lawyer that you hire. If you fail to, a judgment will be entered by default. Depending upon the state in which you live and where the judgment is entered, the judgment is enforceable for many years and becomes a lien on property that you own or acquire during the life of the judgment. Under certain circumstances, bank accounts can be affixed, salary or wages garnished, or other forcible collection deeds taken. If you were issued a ticket and convicted, and if damages exceed a stated amount, the fact that you did not have insurance could lead to a license and registration suspension under your state’s Financial Responsibility Law. If that happens, both are suspended for a period of time (often one or more years), or until such time as you make payment arrangements with the other party. You are generally also required by the state to maintain high-risk auto liability insurance for a number of years. A similar process is triggered if a judgment is entered against you (that is, a license suspension). Another aspect of a collision without insurance is that you will be financially responsible for the repair of your own vehicle. If you had had collision coverage, the insurer would have borne that expense subject to the policy deductible.
