How does No Fault work if there are no injuries only vehicle damage?
Most "no fault" laws apply only to injuries, so in other words, if someone else damages your car, you can get the damages taken care of by their insurance company (or use your ins company and they will go to them for you possibly).
Michigan is the only state I know of that is completely no fault, i.e. for property damage you go through your own insurance company

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.
Who is at fault when your open car door is damaged by a vehicle pulling out of a parking spot next to you?
Answer . Well it depends. When the door opened, did it cross the line into the other parking space? If so, then the person who opened the door is at fault. If the door was… open before they got into their car to back out, then they would be aware of it (therefor would wait until the door is closed before backing out). If they got into their car and then the person opens their door next to them, how can the driver be aware of that when they are focusing on the back of their car as they back out (most people turn around and look behind the car so they don't run a person over - not check for open doors).
Which driver is at fault if a vehicle was rear ended with only one of three brake lights working and no insurance?

Who is at fault if I am sitting in someone else's car on private property and it rolls into another person causing injury and damaging another vehicle?
The question does not disclose whether you were behind the wheel of the car or not. If you were behind the wheel, or somehow were "in control" of the car, then you or the owne…r of the car you were in, are at fault.
Please help. If you damage a client's vehicle while taking him to work and they do not ask you to pay for the damage until two months later only after you quit do you have to pay?
Yes, you are still responsible for the damage. If you have your own auto insurance policy, it may cover this.. There is a statute of limitations that applies to most accident…s of this type. The owner of the car has up to two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit to make you pay for the damages.

It all depends on whether the renter signed up for the car rental company's extra insurance coverage at the beginning of the rental. If LDW (Loss Damage Waiver) or CDW (Collis…ion Damage Waiver) insurance coverage was accepted by the renter, you will likely be dealing with the car rental company's insurance. If the renter declined the extra coverage, then you will deal directly with the renter's personal insurance provider.
Contributory negligence is taken into consideration in all aspects of the claim. I strongly disagree with using this tactic in not paying claims. A couple of insurance compani…es have been using contributory negligence alot to get out of paying claims like they should. I can't tell you which companies I am referring to but one has a green lizard on their advertisements and the other can pop you out of a car that's going to be hit by a buffalo by repeating a phrase and huddling together. These two companies have been the leader when it comes to this tactic. They can claim that both parties are 50% at fault and then they don't have to pay for anything and both people have to fix their cars themselves. God forbid one or more people get hurt.
