Your car was in an accident in Florida It is registered in New York the insurance was in cancellation the car was not being driven by you and was totaled what is your recourse?

Your question is extremely confusing. Whose car is registered in New York? Whose car lacks insurance? Whose car caused the accident? Who was driving the car? All of that may or may not be relevant. In Florida the person who caused the accident is usually responsible for property damage whether or not he or she has car insurance. It does not matter where the car is registered. In Florida, people go after both the driver and registered owner. The driver caused the accident and the registered owner gave the driver permission to drive the vehicle. Collecting one cent is frequently a different matter.

You can pay the insurance bill if you wish but unless the car is registered in your name the bills and responsibility will go to the registered owner.
