You hope that the other driver responsible in the crash has insurance that covers uninsured drivers and then you sue your friend!

There are many programs out there suited for accident prone drivers. Try progressive.

Only if the insurance covers more than one driver. Check the policy.

The un-insured driver will have to turn to their health insurance company for coverage if he carried no auto insurance.

If both drivers have no insurance and do not file a police report, each driver is responsible for repairing the damage to his/her own vehicle.

This Depends on the type of insurance policy. A standard Auto Insurance Policy will most likely pay for permissive use so long as the driver was not excluded from the owners policy, and was not committing a felony at the time of the accident. If the Owner has a Named Driver Policy ( AKA: Drivers Policy, Non - Owners or an Operaters Policy ) then it will likely NOT pay for the drivers accident as it only covers the driver named on the policy. It will probably pay, then promptly cancel. Getting insurance just became very expensive.

liability insurance goes with the driver, so the drivers insurance would pay for it. If the driver does not have insurance, then the owner of the car's insurance would pay if the vehicle was knowingly lent.

Uninsured motorist covers you in the case you are in an accident with another driver that does not have insurance. Comprehensive coverage is what will pay when you hit a deer.

The amount of a claim from an accident has no bearing on the drivers legal requirement for financial responsibility. All drivers are required to carry financial responsibility before they drive. whether or not they have had an accident

Even if a driver was uninsured, the driver who was at fault is responsible for paying for repairs. Not having insurance does not take away responsibility.

Depends on the state laws. Typically driver insurance coverage is extended to any driver of the vehicle insured. Insurance covers the vehicle and any legally licensed driver with permission to operate the vehicle.

Liability insurance for drivers is a requirement in the state of Mississippi. The other party involved in this accident does not have insurance. I do have liability insurance. The accident was not reported although law enforcement was called and an accident report was completed. The other party now wants me to fix her automobile. What are my rights in this situation?

It depends on the policy wording (what you purchased with the policy). Most governments require all cars to have basic third party insurance to be legally on the road. Third party insurance covers all property and people damaged or injured by the driver of a car if that driver is at fault - the "people injured" will include passengers in the car of the driver at fault. Comprehensive insurance covers all that third party insurance does but also includes the drivers car and the driver, even if the driver is at fault. The insurance companies covering the two cars will work out between them which insurance pays for what. Basically passengers, bystanders and drivers not at fault will get paid out by the insurance of the driver who was at fault. However injured passengers should pursue their claim against both drivers (let the insurance companies courts decide who pays in the end) individually. They need to get their own legal representation - get their own attorney /solicitor. THEY WILL NOT BE "LOOKED AFTER" they HAVE to claim for themselves.

the driver is liableHowever if you have insurance that covers the other person by name or "any other driver" then a claim can be made against your insurance. This would make a great court case depending in which state this accident takes place!

If not covered by the school itself, you need insurance that covers "business" in addition to "pleasure" use. Also, you will need insurance that covers additional drivers.

If you are driving a car in the state of Illinois, then you need to carry insurance on the vehicle. Uninsured motorists can get insurance at affordable rates if they know where to look. There is a minimum amount of coverage that the driver needs to have on their insurance. This amount is not high so that drivers can get insurance coverage at an affordable rate. However, if a driver wants to take a risk and let someone else drive their car, they need to carry uninsured motorist insurance on their policy. The minimum amount for this coverage is $20,000. This covers the driver of the car if they were in an accident and were not covered under an insurance policy. In the event of a car accident and the driver of your car or the other car were not covered under their own insurance policy, the uninsured motorist coverage would protect not only yourself but the other drivers in the accident. The coverage will pay for any medical necessities that are incurred during the accident and any wages that are lost. The coverage will only pay up to the amount that you have on your insurance policy. Anything over this amount will be the responsibility of the driver. If the accident was the fault of the other driver, then their insurance will cover up to the amount listed on their policy and then your insurance will cover the remaining amount. An uninsured policy is different than an underinsured policy. An underinsured driver has insurance, but they may not have enough coverage to pay for the expenses if the driver were in an accident. An uninsured motorist has no insurance at all. The only way that an uninsured motorist can usually drive a vehicle is if there is a family member who has taken out the uninsured motorist coverage on their insurance. An uninsured policy is not expensive to get, but it would be best for the driver to obtain their own policy as soon as possible.

If the car is insured and covers other drivers, the damage will be covered to the limits of the policy. If not, they're on their own.

In the United States of America, all states do not require drivers to have auto insurance, however the drivers are still fully financially obligated to pay for any damages in an event of an accident.

That shouldn't keep you from getting auto insurance as long as she is not listed as a designated driver of your vehicle. If your uninsured wife should drive and be involved in an accident with another driver, your insurance will not pay.

If the car is not insured the at fault driver paysIf the Car is insured and the car was properly lent to the at fault driver the insurance company paysProperly Lent:Owner allowed driver to take carInsurance covers other drivers when car lent.

Accident prone drivers who get into more accidents than the typical person cost the insurance company more money. Thus insurance companies charge higher insurance policy premiums to reflect this increased risk to them. You may also consider taking some safe drivers educational courses as well.

I can only speak for Florida because that is where I live and it is a no fault State. In Florida it really would make no difference to you if the other driver did not inform his insurance company of an accident. Really, you would only have to file a claim with your own company and contact his insurance company after the accident. I would just make sure you have the other drivers info so that you can contact them about the accident.

He gets arrested.Added: You could consult with an attorney to determine if you have a suit against the cab drivers employer. If it was an "independent" cab (driver-owned) then you might have a suit against the driver and/or his insurance company.

If someone without a valid drivers license and without car insurance drives a car that is covered by car insurance, does that insurance pay for that uninsured driver if they have a accident?

Their own insurance would cover it if they had collision insurance.
