Does no fault Insurance apply to medical claims only or is the collision damage 'no fault' also?
No fault medical coverage means only that the coverage will pay for an insured's injuries no matter who was at fault for an accident. This is the only coverage in which this 'no fault' terminolgy applies to. The medical coverage names and amounts vary by state. GA, SC, and LA have Medical Payments. FL and MI have Personal Injury Protection. AR has Medical Benefits. They are essentially the same coverage with different amounts, restrictions, etc. but all are considered no-fault coverages.
In claims and with all other coverages, liability for damages is determined by who was at fault or who caused the accident.

With most companies, yes. unless it was weather related in whichcase it would not go up. More Answers from others I disagree with the first answer. If your claim for damage… is theresult of an accident that is "entirely not your fault" your ratesshould NOT go up. They might not.. but GOOD luck when trying toswitch insurance companies... collision claims will show up in yourclaims history database and the premiums WILl be higher.... ithappened to me! In general, yes it will. Your rate is based ontheir actuarial calculations. Fault is not figured into theequation because they will still have to pay your benefitsregardless of fault. Statistics show that most people who get intoan accident are more likely to get into another one. For thatreason, your rates are going to go up. With that in mind though.Most companies have a policy of forgiving the first accident. Youwill not be penalized for the first accident.

You should be able to win a settlement in court if it really was their fault. Hopefully, you have uninsured motorist coverage, in which case I think your insurance company wil…l help you financially and go to court for you. Ask an insurance agent for more information. (I personally like State Farm, but that might be because my dad is an agent. :-) ) In the UK - the Motor Insurers Bureau will pay compensation for your personal injury and vehicle damage if a driver of the vehicle who caused the accident was uninsured or untraced. It is best to use a specialist RTA solicitor to help you make this type of claim. Generally - your solicitor's legal costs can also be claimed from the MIB. See the related link entitled Motor Insurers Bureau below to go direct to the MIB website.

If you are in a no fault state and sustained body damage to your car but do not have collision coverage who pays for your cars damage if its also hit and run?
Physical Damage from a 'Hit and Run' is usually covered under the "Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists Coverage". However, there is usually a deductible of $200.00 to $250.00 R…eview your insurance policy....limits will be stated under 'Insured Coverages'. In this case, the fact that you are in a 'No Fault' state is moot since you apparently did not know who hit your vehicle in the first place. Also, do not be lulled into a false sense of security by the term 'No Fault'...........that is RARELY the case and is an out-dated term.
Will the other insurance company pay for my damages if i don't have collision and it was not my fault?
