It should. If the “at fault” vehicle is insured, it’s supposed to cover the victim’s vehicle 100%. If the “at fault” vehicle has comprehensive and collision insurance that insurance is supposed to cover the at fault vehicle up to the deductable amount.
Note that the tipsy driver will liberate his insurance and be required to get the VERY expensive DUI “insurance endorsment” since he/she is now in the highest risk bracket.
BTW, when a tipsy driver causes a collision it’s not called an “accident”. Accident is when things just happen. Driving toasted is the CAUSE of the collision and as such the collision is not called an accident. Call it a wreck, crash or just about anything else that takes away the implication of a random act.
What do you do if the insurance for a totaled car does not pay off the car loan?
I faced the same thing about a year ago. The insurance company did not want to give me what was needed. I got on-line and found many cars that were just like mine and showcased them that my car was worth more than they were wanting to give me. They still did not want to give me what the car was worth. So I went to petite claims court and filed suit on the driver of the other car. The person’s insurance has to represent them. Also go and look at the comps that the insurance company are using for your car to see if you can substitute the car for what they want to give you. ResponseUltimately it is your responsibility that you either made low payments, took out a very long loan, or picked a car with high depreciation. The insurance company is not liable for the inflated amount you owe–only what the car is worth. ReactionThe insurance company will only give you the value of the vehicle, as per the “Kelly Blue Book”. They will also send an appraiser out to see what the condition of the car was, as in mileage, any previous harm. If the accident was another driver’s fault, you have to sue him and/or his insurance company for the remaining balance.Whatever you borrowed to obtain the vehicle wil always be more than the car is worth. You have already lost money on it as soon as you drove it off the car lot. But do your research. Go online for “Kelly Blue Book”, and get the estimate of the car’s value. If it is more, then dispute it with the insurance company. Print the page out. ResponseWhen you bought the car fresh or used from the dealer you had the option to purchase something called GAP INSURANCE from them (the Dealer, not the insurance company) for your exact situation. If you did not have enough equity in your car for the insurance pay off to cover it AND did not have gap insurance. basically you are screwed and responsible for the rest of the loan amount car or no car. Some people believe Gap insurance is a rip off so they do not suggest it to you and some just don’t know what it is. They do not need to be selling cars. Not fair but the way of life. Father is an insurance sales man. I also had a woman hit me I had GAP insurance and she did not. She still had to pay off the balance on the loan even tho’ she did not have the car. The courts won’t do much because you had the option to purchase gap insurance and you did not, it does not matter that you did not know.
Is the insurance company liable to pay damages to any cars that were hit during an accident when the person had a DUI?
If you mean, “Is the insurance carrier for the at-fault driver liable to pay if the at-fault driver received a DUI,” the response is almost always “yes.”.
The at-fault DUI driver might have a provision in his or her policy that would exclude coverage for this type of accident, but I’ve never seen it. And even if such a provision did exist, it’s unlikely a court would uphold it because it’s against public policy to place injured parties — not to mention the drunken insured — in a situation where they aren’t indemnified..
The at-fault DUI driver is in for a nasty surprise, however, when he sees what his premiums are going to be for the next few years….
If you totaled your car and were arrested for DUI will insurance pay for your car in Texas?
Very likely not. You bruised it during the commission of an illegal act (DUI). If you hadn’t totalled it, the state would have most likely confiscated it anyway.
If your car is worth 12K but you owe 20K on it will the insurance company pay it off if it is totaled in an accident?
You can only collect the fair market value or retail book value depending on the regulations as established by your state’s insurance commissioner. The only way you can collect the difference inbetween the Actual Cash Value of your vehicle and the Payoff is through GAP insurance. This is usually suggested to you during the purchase of your vehicle but can be purchased later. .
At the time of purchase, the suggest to purchase GAP insurance may seem like a ploy by the salesman to sell you something you don’t need. However GAP insurance is a valuable option should this situation arise. GAP insurance is what its name implies, insurance coverage for the “GAP” inbetween the fair market value of your vehicle and the payoff amount.
What can you do if your insurance is cancelled the same day you get in an accident and total your car?
Depends on when it was cancelled. Before or after the accident? When did you get the cancellation notice? If you were cancelled before, then obviously you were uninsured. If the accident was your fault, then any costs are yours alone and not the insurance company’s..
If you are in an accident and you have no insurance what will the bank do when they find out your car is totaled?
The lender has several options but the one you will be worried with is: SUE YOU for the money. Depending on how long you didnt have ins. the lender had very likely placed ins. on the loan that covers them but NOT you. You will still be looking at a Balance DUE. If ya cant ins. it, ya cant AFFORD to drive it. Good LuckIt’s a little more serious than Roosta’s opinion. The vehicle demolished was the collateral which officially established your loan as a SECURED LOAN. That is the condition you signed upon completing your buyer’s contract which is to maintain at minimum Comprehensive and Collision coverages however most of them specifically state such coverage does NOT substitute for bodily injury/property harm liability required by law to even Budge the car without a towing truck in all 50 states and most Canadian territories. Many lenders will like she said add insurance that ONLY covers the repair/replacement costs of their precious investment and they do it almost instantly. If by some chance it’s totalled and they haven’t done so you might be brought up on criminal charges unless you are able to produce the entire remaining balance instantaneously. Unless of course you’re not at fault, in which case the other person’s insurance must pay. These possibilites are going to be the least of your problems if you’re in a crash, at fault with no liability coverage. You’ll very likely spend time in jail not to mention get stuck railing scummy filthy low life busses for the rest of your life, or however long you’re in North America (USA, Mexico, or Canada) They are right. The best thing you can do is keep paying your payments, and hope they don’t find out. ok thank you for your answers but the accident definitly was her falt problem is her isurance doesnt want to cover of coarse she denies!being there at all so what can i do for now as far as the payements and what is ussually the out come? (ive never been in an accident)?

Read your policy. If the policy says that anyone driving your car with your permission is an insured, then the company that insures that car pays. Many policies exclude certain drivers, so it is not a one size fits all response. .
The insurance for the car will pay, not the driver. Sadly, you are not required to pay anything, but if you are a responsible person, then you will….especially if it was your fault.
If you only have liability and your car is totaled in an accident will your insurance pay for it?
Car insurance:liabiltityNo. Because liability only covers the damages to the other persons car in an accident. “Three. Property Harm LiabilityThis coverage pays for harm you (or someone driving the car with your permission) may cause to someone else’s property. Usually, this means harm to someone elseï¿½s car, but it also includes harm to lamp posts, telephone poles, fences, buildings or other structures your car hit.” See the link below for more information on coverage. ReactionNo. Liability takes care of the other driver and his vehicle only. ResponseNo. Unluckily, liability only covers the OTHER stud’s car. If you do not buy the “comprehensive and collision” coverage, YOUR car is only covered if the OTHER man is at fault. ResponseIn the UK there are three main types of car insurance: 1. third party; Two. third party fire and theft and Three. comprehensive. The very first type will not pay for harm to your vehicle in any event; the 2nd will pay if harm to your car is caused due to fire or theft and the third will pay in any event for harm to your vehicle. If however harm is caused by the user of another vehicle you will be entitled to claim compensation from the other driver’s motor insurance for your vehicle harm and if no insurance is in place form the Motor Insurers Bureau. See the related link entitled “car accident claim” to see how to display legal fault for your car accident.
If you are in an accident and it is your fault does your insurance pay for both cars?
No lovey not if your the one at fault… Insurance only covers the other person if your at fault sorry honey……
It depends on what insurance coverage you have. The liability coverage that all states require you to carry on any registered vehicle will cover the other person’s harm. If you also purchased collision insurance, that will pay for your vehicle (less the deductable).
Can carriers raise your premiums for a serious accident where your car is totaled and the insurance company pays for your car but the insurance investigator ruled that the accident was not your fault?
yes if your ins.co. pays for your car..
They CanEven if they don’t pay for your car. My agent warned me that my homeowners premiums could be raised just for filing claims!

Stop driving! If you still didn’t have insurance when you got into your 2nd accident, they’ll very likely suspend your license and if you’re then caught driving they’ll throw you in jail. If you can’t afford insurance you can’t afford to own a car!! Based on your driving record thusfar you need utter coverage!!
Do insurance companies pay for the totaled car causing a collision in a DUI case?
yes if you have collision coverage barring any exclusions in your policy to the contrary.
If my car is totaled and not paid for will your insurance pay for it?
Car Loans .
In most cases, insurance companies are only required to pay up to the book value of your car. What this means is that if you owe $15,000 on a car loan and the car is only worth $12,000, you will still be held responsible for the remaining balance which in this case would be $Three,000. This is also known as being upside down. If you purchase GAP, a.k.a a debt cancellation contract, then you would not be held liable for the remaining $Trio,000. This is why it pays to purchase a car that has good residual value meaning it shouldn’t depreciate much quicker than you are able to pay off your loan.
I had no insurance and was in a car accident but it was no one’s fault Do I have to pay for the other car?
If there was no police report and neither party was given a ticket by the police, then there is no official assignment of fault and it would be hard for the other person to obligate you to pay. If it was “no one’s fault’, why are you worried about paying? Just a bit of advice, however. It’s significant to keep your auto insurance up to date because it protects you from possibly being sued personally. Good luck..
this is a vague question to attempt to response, as auto insurance varies considerably by state. the brief response is, “very likely not, but you might face criminal charges if it is illegal to drive without insurance in your state” … attempt researching this on your own or ask the question again specific to your state.

Your insurance will only pay off what the blue book value of the car is, whether that’s enought to pay off the vehicle is unknown to me. If you owe $7k and insurance says the car is worth $5k you owe the $2k difference.
If you have total coverage car insurance and you have an accident and are killed does insurance pay settlement?
An unendorsed ISO Individual Auto policy should pay your “Part B-Medical Payments Coverage” Limit to an insured,which is a no-fault coverage. This is usually a low limit of 1,000 or Five,000 but can be enlargened. Uninsured/Underinsured coverage could pay bodily injury or funeral expenses you incur if the negligent vehicle doesn’t carry insurance or doesn’t have an adequate amount. Also, there are endorsements available that could indemnify after a death such as “Auto Death Indemnity”, which sounds like what you are needing.
If you are in a car accident and the car is totaled does your car loan get paid off through insurance?
Not unless you have the fresh option in insurance of the fresh car replacement. If your car is totaled, you will be paid the Blue Book price for your vehicle. This sum is the amount your vehicle is worth at this time. Any amount over this sum that is still owed to a car loan is still due.
Will private medical insurance or car insurance pay medical expenses in an auto accident?
Your choice, depending on which coverage is better. Attempt the auto insurance very first. but reminisce, their job is to minimize costs, and sometimes you have to go where they send you. they may have boundaries depending on the policy and state laws. your medical coverage is designed to cut costs by keeping you alive and healthy to keep paying them. they don’t make money off dead people or people too sick to work and keep coverage. they will usually end up paying for long term issues, especially if they don’t pop up right away or if a pre existing conditioned is worsed. how much wor$e is the back ache, truly? you should go through the auto insurance if its drastic, expensive, extensive care. if its minor aches and anguish just pay your Ten$ or $20 copay and go to your primary care physician (your doctor). if you get hurt in an accident, go to the closest hospital right away, don’t delay or the ins co may attempt to loophole out of paying you, thinking scam alert. i once tapped a duo in their 50’s when i was 16 and only driving for a few months. he slammed on his cracks after realizing he was about to miss his turn. at 20 miles in a 25 (it was 200 yards after a turn) i hit a pile of humid leaves next to a stone wall and skidded into them. i was sited no fault as i could not get off the road or go into opposing traffic (why they stopped). they were complaining about how hard i hit them and she was telling he already had a bad back and now this. the office on the scene asked them did they want him to call them an ambulance to take them to a hospital. She said right away no, they were going to their own doctor. after they left the cop told me they would be trouble. but they were denied due to lack of physical proof and officer testimony. so the moral is because some scam, they reason all are potential scammers until proven actually hurt.

What to do if you have a car accident and no car insurance?
Your plunged .
In the UK it is an offense to drive a motor vehicle without a valid policy of motor insurance. If however the car accident was caused by the other vehicle driver you would still be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries and vehicle harm from the other driver. See the related link entitled “car accident claim” for a description of how to prove who was at fault in a car accident. If you caused the accident – the Motor Insurers Bureau would meet the compensation claim for the other driver under the Uninsured Drivers Agreement but the MIB might seek to recover any compensation paid directly from you. See the related link entitled “accident car insurance” for a utter description of motor insurance and the MIB. Same script in The United States. In the State Of Fresh Hampshire , there is no requirement of the state to have insurance. If you have a car financed, the financial institution will require that you have total coverage but other wise, you can drive loosely withou5t insurance. But if you have an accident and you are the cause and have no insurance, you can be cited for no insurance, and the financial ramifications can be ruining.

What is a person at fault with no car insurance in accident to do. in a car accident where i was at fault. i does not have insurance on my car. both cars are totaled. other woman has insurance help?
If you were at fault, then you are liable for all costs. Whether you have insurance or not does not negate your liability. In most states if you fail to pay for the claimants losses you will lose your driving priviledges for up to Ten years or until you pay the bill which ever comes very first. If the other person has insurance to pay for their losses then you will be required to re-imburse that Insurance Company for the damages you caused, You are still the at fault party and are liable for the damages. If you don’t pay the Insurance company they can also turn it over to a collection agency and it will undoubtedly affect your credit for the next Ten years. Basically to sum up. If you don’t pay the damages you will likely lose your credit rating as well as your drivers license for the next Ten years. Good Luck

Where do I get help to pay for my car accidents and insurance in hit and run?
Generally, you cannot, in the absence of collision or uninsured motorist coverage. If the hit and run driver is eventually identified you may be able to sue them personally. Both collision coverage and uninsured motorist coverage are “first-party” coverages, meaning that they cover your own vehicle. Collision coverage provides property harm for your own vehicle irrespective of fault for the collision. It is normally subject to a deductible, meaning there will be an amount that you will have to pay out of pocket. You will have to check your policy, or with your insurance agent, to see if you have the coverage, because it is generally not mandatory. That said, if the vehicle is financed, the entity through which you financed it may have required that you get collision coverage to protect the collateral. If you did not, the company that financed the car may have obtained “force-placed” coverage for you and charged your account the premium for it. Therefore, you should contact the finance company and determine if it did and if so, get the specifics on the coverage so that you can make a claim. Uninsured motorist coverage provides benefits to you if you were injured (usually there is a requirement of permanency, but state law controls) by the negligence of an uninsured driver. It does not provide any property harm benefits, so depending upon the damages that you sustained, it may be moot whether you have it or not. If your state requires you to maintain liability coverage on your car, it will generally also require that your insurer have suggested you the chance to buy or to waive the purchase of uninsured motorist coverage.
What kind of car insurance pays for your injuries when you’re in an accident in your car?
Three types of auto insurance come to mind: medical payments (or private injury protection), liability coverage and under/uninsured motorist coverage. Med Pay is coverage that protects the occupants of a car and pays medical bills up to the amount of the med pay policy thresholds. Liability coverage is the car insurance that pays on behalf of the at-fault driver. This coverage makes a lump sum payment to the injured person who is not at fault. UM coverage is possessed by the injured person and pays them in cases where the at-fault driver does not have any insurance or does not have enough liability coverage.
Can you buy back your totaled financed car lets say my car is financed and I get into an accident that totals my car. I know the insurance will pay out the bank but can i still buy it back after?

But keep in mind your insurance company normally pays the ACV (Actual Cash Value) which may not be what you actually owe on the vehicle unless you carry Gap insurance. Gap Insurance is an extra coverage that covers the balance of the loan inbetween the ACV and remaining Balance.
