Yes. This is a classic bailor/bailee situation and the shop was required to protect you car very diligently or pay for any damages incurred. Your insurance if you had it, wouldn't have been involved. The shop is your first recourse and he should have insurance.

Do you lose your license if your car is in an accident with no insurance and you weren't there?

Yes, If you allowed your car to be driven by another while it was uninsured you can lose your drivers license and the other party can "Sue" both the Driver and You the owner jointly or separately for full compensation for any and all damages. As the owner of the vehicle it is your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is covered regardless of who is driving it. You, the "Owner" are equally "Liable" under the law with the driver you allowed to operate the vehicle. If the vehicle was stolen you can file a police theft report and you would not be held liable for the accident.

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.

If you were hit by a stolen car is the owner's insurance liable?

Generally speaking, no the owner's insurance will not be liable, BUT in some jursidictions, the owner may be liable, IF they didn't take basic care to prevent the theft of their car. So if the car was left unlocked, or the keys were inside the un-locked car, the owner MAY be liable for damages casued by the stolen car. The theory in law here is that the actions of the owner created a situation that allowed the thief easy access to the instrument that caused the damage, namely the car. In some cases, the court may find that the percentage of the blame will be shared by the owner and the thief, fifty fifty, or some other percentage, determined by the Bench. Shared guilt is the concept here.


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 damages and injuries?

You can check with your own insurance and it will most likely cover your medical costs but I doubt they will pay for the damage to the vehicle. If you wish to get payment from the uninsured auto owner you will have to sue them in civil court. Good luck
