If you are not at fault and the police report and witnesses prove this do you still pay your deductible?

You do not have to pay the deductible if the other person's insurance is paying the claim. If you put the claim through your insurance, and do not have uninsured, underinsured motorist protection then you will have to pay the deductible regardless of who's at fault.

If your parked car was hit by an at fault driver and filed a claim with your full coverage insurance will it go up?

Yes, anytime you make a claim to YOUR insurance, it will go up. That's how they get their money back. If you don't submit a claim to them, then no. I do not necessarily agree with the answer above. What you did not indicate in your question was did the person at fault have insurance. If they did then even though you filed a claim and your carrier paid you, they would likely recover from the at fault person's insurance. In this circumstance you insurance should not go up.

Should you go through your insurance company for a door ding your passenger inflicted on another vehicle estimated cost 320 or will it cause your premiums to increase?

This is a tough one. Most likely the claim will be paid under the "property damage" portion of your policy and then that claim will look like it's an at fault accident. If possible, try to get a statement from your insurance company that you were not at fault in the incident. Also, it might be possible, and better, if the passenger has auto insurance that they make a claim under their own policy.

Can you file a claim on both insurance companies yours and the party at fault in an auto accident?

Yes, you can. However, ultimately it is the at fault party's insurance company that will pay for the claim. In such a case, you will file a claim under your collision coverage and be subjected to the deductible. Once the claim is settled, your company will subrogate the loss with the other company(i.e. get reimbursed). Once that happens, you will be provided your deductible back. If you go through the at fault party's policy, you would file the claim under the property damage of the policy.

If you have PLPD and are involved in an accident does their insurance cover your car?

If the other party has insurance then their "property damage" coverage should cover damage to your vehicle. If you happen to be at fault or there is some question as to who is at fault then it might be hard to collect from their insurance company. Only if the other party is at fault. If you have collision insurance, you can file the claim with your own agent. Then you will be paid for your damages, less your deductible, and when your company collects from the other company you will also get your deductible. If you do not have collision, you will have to file your claim directly with the at-fault driver's insurance. If the company denies your claim (and unless there is very compelling evidence that their client was at fault, they will), you will have to sue the driver. Then, IF YOU WIN the lawsuit, their insurance will pay.


How does one make a motorcycle accident claim?

If a person has been in a motorcycle accident and he or she needs to file a claim, the first thing he or she needs to do is contact the insurance company. If an individual is not insured, then that person needs to contact an attorney to properly file the claim. Generally, the claim is filed through the insurance company. Claim filing procedures depend on the motorist at fault.


What do you do if you get into a accident with someone who does not have insurance and you are not at fault?

Most no fault insurance laws protect the not-at-fault party. Your insurance will indemnify your loss and penalize the un-insured motorist. DO NOT make outside deals with an uninsured person after an accident as this limits your ability to make claim.


Do insurance companies cover an accident when it is your fault and you don't get the other drivers information for the claim?

Yes, you would be covered by YOUR insurance company, given you have "Full-Coverage" coverage on your policy. Keep in mind, when filing a claim with your own insurance company, that this claim will follow you on a permanent insurance record for 5 years, possibly more in depending on your state. So be very wary of claiming an accident that was someone else's fault on your insurance. This may raise your premiums, or make you ineligible for insurance through A rated companies.

You do not have to reimburse your insurance company if the accident is the fault of the other driver and the claim is made on their insurance. If the accident is the fault of the other driver and their insurance does not cover everything and you make a claim on your insurance for reimbursement, your insurance will subrogate (collect back) from the other company.
