Only if the other driver was At Fault. If the driver of the uninsured vehicle was at fault, the injured person would have to recover damages from them.

Are you saying that you are uninsured, and the drunk was at fault, if simply due to the fact that you were uninsured (and of no fault whatsoever), you have to pay for his vehicle? NO, the ''at fault/negligent" party is liable/responsible for the damages they caused due to their neglience. Subject to any laws in your state barring uninsured drivers/owners from recovery of damage. But just because you are uninsured (if not at fault) you are not responsible for the drunks damages.

If there was another vehicle involved and the accident was that driver's fault you can file a claim through their insurance. Otherwise, the only other place to go is through your insurance. You can use your medical coverage (if you have it) and you should have "uninsured motorist bodily injury" coverage that you can use.

You have collision insurance is uninsured motorist insurance necessary?

Collision insurance will cover the damages to your vehicle- no matter who is at fault. Uninsured coverage is used if the other vehicle is at fault for the accident and you and/or anyone in your car is injured. This coverage will typically pay for related medical bills, loss wages, and general damages (i.e pain and suffering). Liability = Other vehicle damage Injuries to driver/passenger in other vehicle Injuries to passengers in your vehicle if you are at fault Collision/Comprehensive = Cover damages to your car Uninsured/Under-insured = Injuries to you or your passengers when another vehicle is at fault and does not have insurance or has minimum coverage

An insured driver is unknowingly driving an uninsured car and has an accident The owner of the uninsured car is injured Who pays for the uninsured owners injuries?

this is tricky, dependant on the state laws...you are driving an uninsured vehicle, you have insurance on another vehicle of your own, you get into an accident that is your fault...the owner of the vehicle is a passenger in the car and is injured...your policy should step in and cover this uninsured vehicle (assuming you have collision coverage on your policy) you chose to drive, (doesn't matter you didn't know it was uninsured) and if your neglience resulted in this passengers injuries your policy will likely pay for their injury subject to any exclusion in the policy.....sorry.....

Can the driver at fault file a claim to his own insurance for bodily injury under his uninsured motorist portion of his policy if he was driving a friend's vehicle who had no insurance coverage?

No. Insurance follows the vehicle primary, driver secondary. Since the driver is at fault and there is no coverage under the vehicle itself, the drivers policy would pay for any bodily injury or property damage he may have caused. Therefore uninsured motorist coverage would not apply. The only way that driver would have coverage for himself is if he already had Med Pay coverage on his own policy.


What happens if an uninsured driver has an accident in your car?

Both the "Driver and the Vehicle Owner" can be held jointly and severally "Liable" for an accident. If the driver of your vehicle was at fault and had the permissive use of your vehicle, Both the driver and the vehicle owner can be sued for damages and injuries. The driver, If at fault, would be financially liable because he was the direct cause of the accident. The vehicle owner is financially liable because of fault through the owners negligence in allowing an uninsured driver to operate your vehicle. The legal rational being that had you not allowed this uninsured person to operate your vehicle, the accident would never have occurred. So the owner is also a direct causation factor in the accident through the owners negligence. It's not a good idea to let people drive your vehicle if your not sure your insurance will cover them, Basically it is the responsibility of a vehicle owner to insure that all permissive use drivers are covered. As the owner you can be left with the bill for all damages and injuries sustained as a result of your choice to loan out your vehicle.
