Further, if you are involved in a collision that is your fault and do not have liability insurance, you may be personally liable for the other party(ies) damages. In turn, if you are sued for those damages and a judgment is entered against you, the Financial Responsibility Laws of most states dictate that your license will be suspended until payment of the damages is arranged.

Each insurance policy is different. Technically you are able to switch companies at any time BUT there could be a penalty or fee for leaving before your renewal date.

If you simply stop paying your current insurance company, you can bet that it will hurt your credit score. That will also cause any fresh policies to be more expensive. You also want to make sure there are no lapses in your coverage. Make sure your fresh policy starts the same day that your old one completes. You should call your insurance company and see what necessary steps need to be taken.

If you fail to make the downpayment on a renewal there is no grace period at all so you have to be careful. If the insurance company is going to cancel your policy after the very first 60 days due to tickets, accidents, company leaving an agency, or whatever, then they can only non-renew your policy by sending you at least a 45 day notice prior to the renewal date.
Can the auto insurance policy holder be held accountable for an accident caused by one of the drivers in their policy?
Absolutely. Say you have an Legitimate year old in your house that you have not listed on your auto insurance. You permit your child to drive your vehicle and they have an at fault accident that causes harm and/or injuries to another vehicle. Your insurance company most likely will not pay for the claim because you have not been paying premiums to have the Legal year old covered on your policy so they deny coverage. At this point you will still be personally responsible for the harm and injuries. The other parties insurance may pay their damages under their uninsured motorist coverage after which they will sue you personally for reimbursement of all amounts they had to pay due to your lie. If they have to go to court to collect you will also have to pay all legal fees, collection costs, and interest as well. Depending on your state laws and regulations you will often times liberate your drivers license until it is paid in utter. My advice is if you expect your insurance company to pay when you have a claim then pay them the correct premiums and don’t lie to them.
