If you are hit by an Uninsured Driver you should take the following actions- Contact the police, get information from and on any witnesses that saw the accident and get photographs of the vehicles and the accident scene. Another important step to take beforehand of the accident is to make sure you have Uninsured Motorist Insurance on your Car Policy.
Maybe. Did the unlicensed driver have your permission to be operating the car when the accident occurred? If so, maybe not.
No, homeowners insurance excludes vehicles.
Vehicles are insured not drivers. If you are qualified and authorized to operate an auto the insurance on it will pay for it and any damage done by it.
UM/UIM policies are in case you are involved in an accident with a driver who doesn't have insurance or doesn't have enough. This policy is only in the event that the uninsured motorist is at fault for the accident. it is not necessary on all vehicles but it might be a good idea.
almost all states require liability insurance. the fact that the friend had 'non owner' does not mean that it was ok to drive an uninsured vehicle. the law requires the vehicles, not the drivers, to be insured.
When a car is uninsured and it involved in an accident, the owner of the car is responsible for its damages and that of the other involved cars. This rule applies even if the driver has his own insurance cover on a different car.
Damages should be sought from the at fault party. Failure to add the owned vehicle to the auto insurance policy has left the driver apparantly uninsured in that vehicle. The claimant may need to rely on uninsured motorits coverage. The insurer may offer a grace period for newly acquired vehicles. both drivers should contact their insurance company as it appears one may have no coverage in the accident.
If you get into an accident in New Jersey and are not insured, it will cost you a substantial amount. The cost to repair the vehicle, pay the fines if responsible for the accident and possibly have to pay for some damages done to other vehicles or public property.
Doubt your license will be suspended his might, but you run a risk of losing your plates and any plates in your name, along with fines etc. This is a state specific thing. In my state, the owners of uninsured vehicles (if they were NOT the driver) lose their plates, and the uninsured driver loses their licence. Check with your states dept of insurance and they will be able to answer this.
In the UK the insurance company would not accept liability except under exceptional circumstances
If they murdered the passenger, then there is not much you can do.
Only if the friend gets into an "at fault" accident.
If you and your vehicle are in an accident, be sure to exchange phone numbers and addresses, as well as insurance, with the other party involved in the accident. Also, be sure that the police are notified of the accident.
If you are NOT at fault you have no responsibility and the vehicles insurance company that is at fault must pay all damages and costs including a rental car. If you are at fault it depends on the vehicles insurance policy if it covers alternate drivers.
insurance for commerical vehicles is higher because of the fact they will be driven more frequently by multiple drivers. The driving distance could vary from short to long. The probabality of being in an accident is greater, as well as lawsuits.
== == If no other vehicles were involved in this accident, the insurance company of the motorcycle driver has to cover the medical bills of the passenger who was injured.
Is there more to this question than meets the eye? Basically, if vehicles don't touch then it's difficult to see what accident has happened, but of course, if a body has been squeezed between the vehicles, thereby preventing them from touching, then yes, there has been an accident. Answer: Any Insurance company can be claimed for the damage of the vehicle and not the accident. It is up to the investigating agencies to look into the cause of the damage and ascertain if it was damage to accident in contact with what obstacle. It is not necessary that there a visual contact. Accidents/damages can occur even without a contact for insurance claims to be claimed for.
Unfortunately, yes. Although the laws require every motorist to have adequate insurance coverage in order to register their vehicles, some will do just that and once they receive their current vehicle license, drop the insurance simply because they cannot afford it and eat, too. You should also get "under-insured" motorist coverage too ... some may have the absolute minimal insurance that simply will not cover enough of the expenses that are incurred by accident victims.
"You should always have insurance on your vehicles, regardless of what type. If you get in an accident and don't have insurance, you can be liable for any damages or injury to yourself or others. You should make sure you are protected."
This depends upon which state you are in. Almost all states require liability insurance on vehicles that are registered for road use. Some states, like California, closely monitor electronically which vehicles have current insurance and which ones do not... and the ones that do not get a hefty fine for every day the vehicle is uninsured. Some states are not so proactive.
Driving in an uninsured car has serious and expensive consequences.You will receive a traffic violation. Your license can be suspended.The police can tow and impound the vehicle. The vehicle can't be released until proof of insurance is procured. The impound fees add up quickly and the tow company can send your car to auction if the fees are not paid within the statutory time period for your state.
Only if you expect your insurance to cover you if the child has an accident. You auto insurance contract states that you are responsible for listing all household members and drivers who drive your vehicles. If you do not do this then you have committed material misrepresentation and the insurance company is then not responsible for paying for the damage from the accident.
Uninsured motorist property damage, or "UMPD", is basically a form of auto insurance that's one step above liability. Basically when you drive a car and only have liability, your insurance will only cover other vehicles in case of accident, as someone's else's liability or other insurance would cover you if you happen to have gotten hit. Now, if you were to get hit but that person lacked insurance and you only had liability, your only other option to recover any money would be to file a lawsuit. However, lawsuits are simply court orders to pay money and aren't necessarily guaranteed. UMPD would cover your car in case someone happened to hit you and they happened to lack insurance.
With more and more vehicles on the road these days car accidents are becoming more common place. If a person should have a car accident the best place they can turn to for advice on an accident is their own car insurance company.
