Yes, If the accident was your fault, then it is your fault. Whether or not they have insurance has nothing to do with who's at fault, or who actually caused the accident.

What can you do if you got hit and it wasn't your fault but the other person didn't have insurance?

You can take the other person to court and hopefully get a judgment against them. But even this is no guarantee you'll ever get anything from them. If you have collision, comprehensive, and medical, you should be able to collect from your insurance company and let them sue the at-fault party. Normally, you are required to have uninsured motorist coverage, check your policy. Then talk to an attorney. It involves suing your own insurance company but is still a not at fault accident.


Rear ended in California with a lapse in auto insurance is the person that hit you still responsible for medical injuries?

I am not familiar with California laws but... In 99% of cases, the person who rear-end's you is at fault. If the other person is at fault, they are liable for damages and medical injuries. The fact that you are not insured does not make the at fault driver not responsible for damages and injuries that he or she causes.


What happens if you get into a motorcycle accident and you dont have insurance and its your fault in Florida?

You are responsible for the damage you cause in an accident, regardless if you are insured or not. Having insurance transfers your responsibility to pay for the damage from you to your insurance company. If there are injuries to the other party, then the other party's insurance should pay for their injuries, but you are still responsible for the property damage you have caused the other person.

What are the benefits of Florida no fault car Insurance?

Florida's no fault car insurance pertains to medical payments. The insurance states that the insurance company will pay for your bodily injury claims regardless of who was at fault for the accident. Damage done to property (i.e. the car) would still be covered by the at fault party. The Florida no fault car insurance is a benefit because one does not have to worry about not having their medical needs covered because the accident was the fault of the other party and they do not have sufficient insurance.


Can you still collect on your own insurance without paying the deductible after an accident.?

If you have collision coverage on your vehicle you can collect from your insurance company for the damages. You will not have to pay the deductible if you were determined by the insurance company to not be at fault for the accident. They then go after the other insurance company to get the money they paid you back. If you do not carry collision coverage then you need to file with other insurance company, they will then decide who was at fault for the accident if their party was at fault they then pay you for the damages to your vehicle.

The presumption is that if you were rear ended, the other driver is at fault. The brake lights not working is a mitigating factor, but the bulk of the blame still goes with the other driver. Insurance doesn't have any relation to fault. But it coculd get you a ticket.


Who pays your deductible if the other person is at fault in Michigan no fault auto?

No fault insurance refers to injuries, not property damage. Being in a no fault state simply means that your injuries are payed for by your own insurance company regardless of who is at fault in an accident. Fault is still assigned for the purpose of determining who is responsible for property damage. It is always the at-fault party's responsibility for pay for the damage they cause to you. If you are going to have the damage for your car payed for under your collision coverage then you will have to initially pay for your deductible, unless you have broad-form collision. If you do pay your deductible then your insurance company will sue the at-fault party to recover the money that they payed to repair your car, as well as your deductible for you. This process is called subrogation.


If you get into a car accident and the other person does not have insurance do you still pay the deductible?

This depends on many factors, including the ability of the other person to pay for your damages. Some insurance policies will not require you to pay a deductible. Others will. If the other person can pay for the damages, you and your insurance will not have to pay.


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 10 years or until you pay the bill which ever comes 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 definitely affect your credit for the next 10 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 10 years. Good Luck


Who pays the medical bills for passengers who are involved in an accident where the at fault party is uninsured and you don't have uninsured motori?

Each person is responsible for their own medical expenses. Each injured person can bring suit against the person who is at fault even though they did not have insurance. They are still the responsible party whether or not they had insurance. Good Luck though.


If you have basic insurance someone is faulted by hitting your car what should be done?

You will need to make a report to both insurance companies. Even though you are not at fault your insurance company will still want to know. Unless the other party takes the blame right away and tells there insurance company that it was there fault then you do not need to tell your insurance. But I always recommend that you always talk to your insurance company about the accident.


You have no car insurance and are involved in an accident that is not your fault does their insurance still pay for damages to your vehicle?

What if you deny fault auto accident and it was your fault?

The insurance company is the one that determines fault so if you deny it, they can still rule against you.


Do you still get paid by the other driver's insurance if he was at fault but you had no insurance?

Yes, but keep in mind that the other insurer may dispute liability (fault) and the extent of damages. Further, the other driver would have to have had liability insurance in order for you to get paid. Depending upon the jurisdiction in which you/he live(s), there may only be a requirement that property damage liability insurance be maintained. Therefore, if you sustained bodily injuries in the collision, the other driver would have been effectively uninsured.
