Beg and Pay. You will be responsible for all costs associated with the accident. If you don’t have the funds to pay the entire claim the more than likely the other party will file the claim on their uninsured motorist section of their auto policy. The UM will act as your insurance would have if you had insurance. They will then come after you for all amounts paid, plus interest, legal fees, and collection costs. In order to keep the legal and collection costs at a minimum you should attempt and work out a payment plan with the insurance company. Depending on the state you live in you will most likely face severe penalties, fines, and loss of your license. Some states will take your license until the amount owed is paid in total. You may be able to get a limited permit to go back and forward to work only.
Does the insurance company have the right to total your car even if their insured was at fault for the accident?
Your car being deemed a total loss does not have anything to do with the liability of the accident. Your vehicle becomes totalled when the repair cost exceeds the local market value of your vehicle.
You were in an accident which was not your fault but you did not have car insurance are you liable for this accident?
If it wasnt your fault, then the person who was at fault is liable. I would suggest working something out inbetween the two of you, since you could have your liscense suspended if caught without insurance. II: You wish it was that effortless! It is illegal to operate a vehicle without insurance coverage. The minute the other driver’s insurance co. finds out that you were not insured, the claim becomes 50/50 and very hard to fight. You pay for yours and they pay for thiers. That’s all.
What is the process if you have no insurance and are at fault in accident?
The insurance company will subrogate (come to you for payment) you for all payments including their insured’s deductible, repairs, injuries, rental etc. You more than likely will lose your license and any plates and suffer with many fines as well. Best to be upfront contact the company and work out a payment agreement if you do not have all the money required . This could also cause you trouble in getting insurance in the future….(many companys will not insured a person/property that has went ‘uninsured’ for any length on time).sorry
Do you need insurance when you’re in a car accident but not at fault?

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 very 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 bods 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 possessor 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 would you do if you were told not to give your insurance info after a car accident that was not your fault?
Always cooperate with an investigation by the police. Your question points out another reason to call the police when you are in an accident. Let the officer assign responsibility. Demonstrate the officer your license, registration and insurance card. After he is through with the investigation it will be demonstrable who is responsible and whose insurance gets to pay for the harm..
Taken from www.progressive.com and the back of my insurance card. .
You must give all of your information to the other person and they have to give all of their information to you and it -must- be correct. Its the law. If the other party is at fault, even tho’ they have your insurance info, they can’t call your insurance and attempt to lay a claim. That would be insurance fraud and it is illegal. Note that only an official police report can lay fault at the accident. When there is no police involved, as would be the case in a parking lot accident, it is up to the insurance companies. Regardless, information must be exchanged and if it is determined that the other party is at fault by a police report, they cannot lay a claim against your insurance company, even if they have your info. .
If you are worried about identity theft. There is not much you can do. As I said above. You have to give the decent insurance information to the other person and they have to give it to you. There is no way around this.
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!
Involved in a not-at-fault accident is it your fault or the proprietor’s for driving their uninsured car if you thought it was insured?
Ultimately, the driver is responsible for everything that that is caused by or contributed to while the driver is in the vehicle. Lights don’t work? Drivers fault. Not insured? Drivers fault. ResponseIf you drive a car that is not insured you can be ticketed for that. If you were not at fault in the accident then hopefully the other driver had insurance otherwise the harm to your friends car will have to be paid out of pocket. If that were the case then you could attempt to take the at fault driver to court. It is the responsibility of the possessor of the vehicle to have the vehicle insured. ResponseThe law clearly states that it is the driver’s resposibility to make sure that the vehicle he/she is driving is decently insured and there are no acceptions, you will be ticketed.
If you was in a car accident that was not your fault and you do not have insurance can you receive money from the other party’s insurance company?
Every once in a while you will hear of a proposed law “Pay to Play” which says that if you are driving illegally without insurance that you can’t expect to receive payments from an insured driver that runs into you. While I and many other people might like such a law, I have never heard of such a law that is in place at this time. So, if you are truly not at fault in the accident then I would imagine that you should be able to get payment from the at fault party.
What do you do if you had an at fault accident but you have no insurance?
They can sue you. If you have no money in the bank or no assets (a home, vehicle, valuables), then it won’t do the other person any good. It will be almost unlikely to get insurance now that you have an accident on your record without coverage (big no no). In the mean time, hopefully the other person has insurance to cover themselves against people who are uninsured in an accident.
What happens if you are in an accident that was not your fault but you do not have insurance?
Since you are not suppose to even be on the road without insurance, you will get a fat ticket for this and most likely have your license suspended. Also, you will have a VERY hard time getting insurance. If you are fortunate enough to get insurance, your premiums will be almost unlikely to afford. The other driver’s insurance will pay for her own damages and maybe yours, but that will be a battle all by itself.
What do you do if you get into a accident with someone who does not have insurance and you are not at fault?
Most no fault insurance laws protect the not-at-fault party. Your insurance will indemnify your loss and penalize the un-insured motorist. DO NOT make outside deals with an uninsured person after an accident as this thresholds your capability to make claim.
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! They used to send an adjustor out automatically if there was a hailstorm or windstorm, but not any more. I just wished an ajustor to estimate the harm last spring and let me know if it would exceed my deductible.
What happens if you have no insurance and are at fault in an accident?
Obviously, you can get a ticket. You also can be sued by the victim and the victim’s insurance company for damages. They will look at your assets and see what can be liquidated to pay off the judgment. This could bankrupt you, depending on your state’s rules for what assets you can protect from liquidation. The victim will have an attorney who will get paid at least a third of what is collected and has a strong motivation to get every last penny they can from you. Going without liability insurance is a very, very, very bad idea, not to mention it is against the law in 49 states.
When you are not at fault for an accident does the insurance company owe for collision insurance that I buy on the rental car?
“No” , not in most cases. I am assuming for the sake of answering your question that the facts are similar to this; you were in an accident you were not at fault the other company has accepted liablity for the loss, and put you in a rental while your vehicle is being repaired you only had liablity coverage on your vehicle (the one in the shop). But of course need collision and comprehensive on the rental you are now using. They do not owe to pay for this coverage for you (subject to any state laws to the contrary, you could call your states dept of ins. for that response, but I know of no states that require this). The presumption is, you didn’t think it was necessary to cover your own vehicle for coll and comp so why would they pay for it on the rental? I know your vehicle was older, this one is fresh, etc. I totally understand, but I have seenvery fewof these where the ‘at fault’ company will provide this coverage, you can of course buy/pay for a harm waiver for this rental with the rental car company, or contact your agent, and ask if there is anything they can do about a ‘brief term’ collision and comp coverage for this rental (but again I doubt this too)…..sorry, If I can be of any further assistance please let me know more details and I will do my best to help.

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.
If you are in an accident and at fault will the insurance company repair your car?
It depends on what company you have insurance with, where you live, and how much coverage you have been paying for. I have The Hartford Insurance. I was in one, I was at fault and they paid for repairs on the other boy’s car and my car. It all depends on how much coverage you pay for in your premiums..

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

Does a no fault accident on your motorbike affect your car insurance?
as a general rule, if it occurred on the road and the “motorbike” is being used as a “vehicle” as in driving on a roadway like cars etc vs offroad… then it very well may affect your auto policy. In some states a report is required for any death or injury which includes “offroad” but since in a case like that it was very likely a “recreational type vehicle” it may not. The type and size may play a part as well. It may need to be classified as a “motor vehicle” to trigger the reporting requirement, which may be different deoending on the state.
