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.

No. No fault means exactly that. The driver not responsible for the accident cannot be held liable for injuries to any passengers in the at fault vehicle.

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.

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

What will happen if you are a passenger in a car that has a severe accident and you are severly injured The car is uninsured and the driver who doesn't own the car is uninsured?

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.

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.....
