No. Uninsured motorist coverage protects the owner of the vehicle which is damaged due to the actions of an uninsured driver of another vehicle (or damage caused by a hit-and-run driver). I think what you are asking is known as a 'permissive' driver - someone who was driving another person's vehicle with the owner's permission, but who is not actually named on the policy. The answer to this is 'probably' depending on the insurance company and the provisions of the policy itself, but if provided for would cover them like they were a named insured on the policy.
Whether in Virginia or another state, uninsured motorist insurance is often pushed aside by drivers. Unfortunately for those drivers, uninsured motorist insurance could come in handy in the case of an accident where the other driver involved does not have insurance. In Virginia, uninsured motorist insurance is actually mandatory. Residents are required to purchase uninsured motorist insurance as part of their auto insurance plan. Fortunately for residents of Virginia, uninsured motorist insurance can help protect from health care costs and other costs associate with an accident that the driver is not at fault for. Residents of Virginia are required to purchase 25/50/20 of uninsured motorist insurance with their auto insurance policy. This amount of insurance is purchased in order to cover bodily injury and damage to property costs associated with an accident. Additionally, uninsured motorist insurance can help pay for lost wages and other medical bills as a result of an accident. While uninsured motorist insurance may seem like an extra or unnecessary costs, statistics have shown that nearly 15 percent of drivers on the road do not carry liability insurance. In the case of an accident in which a driver does not have insurance, the driver at fault would be required to pay for any and all costs. If they can't, it becomes the responsibility of the other driver involved in the accident. It doesn't matter if the driver was at fault or not. In Virginia, drivers have the option of purchasing a deductible for uninsured motorist insurance. The deductible is the price that a driver is willing to pay out of pocket if they have an encounter with an uninsured driver that can not pay for damages and or medical bills. Fortunately, as it is mandatory in Virginia, purchasing uninsured motorist insurance or paying for a deductible is relatively inexpensive. As with all types of auto insurance, prices will vary depending on the insurance company. For best deals on uninsured motorist protection rates, it's best to shop around.

If the uninsured driver had the permission of the insured driver to operate the vehicle then NOTHING will happen to the uninsured driver. In fact, in this case he or she is not an uninsured driver at all. The insurance follows the vehicle first, the driver second.
If there was another vehicle involved and the accident was that driver's fault you can file a claim through their insurance. Otherwise, the only other place to go is through your insurance.

For liability it's $20,000 - injury or death of one person in an accident, $40,000 - injury or death of more than one person in an accident, and $15,000 - damage to property of another person. For uninsured motorist coverage it's $20,000 per person, $40,000 per accident.
New Jersey requires that drivers hold uninsured motorist insurance because of the number of drivers in the state who are on the roads without proper coverage. This type of insurance will cover the damages that are caused by another driver in an accident if that driver does not have insurance. Many insurers will also include coverage in the case of an underinsured driver who does have insurance but whose policy does not pay enough to cover the damages that are incurred. Uninsured motorist insurance will help to make up the difference in compensation between what a driver should receive and what the negligent individual can pay. It does not provide extra money above what the main insurance policy would normally pay. One of the key elements that can dictate whether a driver will receive money due to an accident with an uninsured driver is the issue of liability. New Jersey has comparative negligence laws in place. This means that the fault for an accident can be placed on more than one individual. The uninsured driver must be found to have a larger portion of negligence than the driver with insurance. If the policyholder is found to have the larger portion of fault in an accident then the uninsured motorist coverage will not be applicable. The actual definition for who is an uninsured driver in New Jersey is not always clear and can actually be applied to a broad range of individuals. A person is considered uninsured if they are not holding any liability coverage. A person can also be considered uninsured or underinsured if they have some form of liability coverage but the amount of the policy is not enough to pay for any damages that have been caused. Another definition for an uninsured motorist is a person who had insurance when the accident occurred but then subsequently had their claim denied so that no payments are made to the victim of the accident. Some situations can occur where the person who is at fault for an accident is not present after the accident or is completely unknown. Uninsured motorist insurance in New Jersey will pay for the damages that were caused by an anonymous individual if there is some evidence that the covered driver was not at fault. This can help a driver to regain the use of their vehicle quickly and pay for medical bills but can also lead to a long litigation process once the individual who caused the accident is found.
Since you are the only person with insurance it would be your insurance that pays, if your policy says this situation is covered. It depends on your insurance policy. Some cover you, others don't
Underinsurer or uninsured Property damage coverage pays for damage to your vehicle if another vehicle is at fault for the accident but is uninsured or underinsured.
I don't understand the question. You have no option to keep or give away coverages. This applies to uninsured motorist as well as any other coverage. Generally UM coverage is split limits and specify a limit per person and a limit per accident for bodily interest and another section that pays for physical damage for the vehicle. The claims adjustor will pay out the claims as they come in up to the limits on the policy.
this is tricky, dependant on the state laws...you are driving an uninsured vehicle, you have insurance on another vehicle of your own, you get into an accident that is your fault...the owner of the vehicle is a passenger in the car and is injured...your policy should step in and cover this uninsured vehicle (assuming you have collision coverage on your policy) you chose to drive, (doesn't matter you didn't know it was uninsured) and if your neglience resulted in this passengers injuries your policy will likely pay for their injury subject to any exclusion in the policy.....sorry.....
How is the driver uninsured? If he had permission from the insured vehicle owner to drive? There are policy exclusion that apply but most generally that person is considered as an insured driver. I will assume (for the purpose of answering your question) by uninsured driver you mean they have no policy of their own. Are you asking if weather conditons contributed to the accident (say wet/slick road) and they slid into another vehicle is the insurance on the car responsible for the damage to the vehicle they slid into? Yes, probably. Insurance stays with the car. If you could provide more detailed information regarding the driver, and facts of loss, I could be of more assistance to you.
The clause in a policy of insurance on a motorcycle, provides that if the owner of the motorcycle is injured by a negligent driver of another vehicle who doesn't have liability or insurance, then the insurance company will pay its insured's damages.
UM (uninsured motorist) coverage is not required in all states that require liability coverage. However, UM is an important coverage in auto insurance because it steps in and pays for your bodily injury (medical expense, lost wages, and pain & suffering) when you are injured by a hit-and-run, uninsured driver, or irresponsible driver who carries low liability coverage on their auto insurance. In another word, UM is a coverage for you and people in your car guarding against the risk of irresponsiblly insured drivers - and there are a lot of them out there.
Uninsured driver hits another uninsured driverYour both out of Luck, Neither of you have insurance. Both drivers will likely be fined and both drivers will likely have their drivers license suspended.
Collision insurance will cover the damages to your vehicle- no matter who is at fault. Uninsured coverage is used if the other vehicle is at fault for the accident and you and/or anyone in your car is injured. This coverage will typically pay for related medical bills, loss wages, and general damages (i.e pain and suffering). Liability = Other vehicle damage Injuries to driver/passenger in other vehicle Injuries to passengers in your vehicle if you are at fault Collision/Comprehensive = Cover damages to your car Uninsured/Under-insured = Injuries to you or your passengers when another vehicle is at fault and does not have insurance or has minimum coverage
A bodily injury claim is a liablity claim. Most auto policys have three (could be many more) liability coverages; Bodily injury (pays for injuries you cause to another), Property damage (pays for damages to property of others), Uninsured motorist coverage (pays for injuries caused by an uninsured motorist). The bodily injury coverage is one coverage under the liability section of your auto policy.
I believe you are saying one care is parked and is hit by another car that leaves the scene of the accident. If your vehicle has uninsured motorist coverage then the UM coverage will pay to repair your vehicle less your deductible. If later a witness or the offender turns himself in and your company had already paid, the other party will reimburse the insurance company and they will reimburse you for your deductible.
Having the right auto insurance is extremely important for all drivers. While the minimum insurance requirements are determined by each state, and provide a decent amount of protection in the case of an accident, many people need additional protection from uninsured or under-insured drivers. This is where California uninsured motorist insurance steps in to provide coverage, even when others are driving illegally or cause more damage than they can cover with their own policy.The Minimum is Not EnoughWhile many states do require a certain minimum insurance coverage to be able to legally drive a vehicle, the reality is that these minimums are often not enough to cover severe property damage, especially if another driver is injured and needs physical therapy.In these cases, the additional money must be paid from the at-fault driver's personal funds. If a driver is running around without insurance or with just the minimums, they likely don't have the money required to pay for medical procedures and vehicle repairs, and the accident victim may be left in the cold without uninsured motorist insurance.Providing Peace of MindWith these tough economic times, more and more people are choosing to drive illegally without the proper insurance, hoping they never get into an accident. Being protected and maintaining peace of mind means more than just driving safely - it means having the proper coverage as well.Accidents happen, and increasing numbers of people are under-insured, especially as the minimum requirements have stayed the same while vehicle and medical costs have increased. In the state of California, uninsured motorist insurance is quite affordable and can mean the difference between paying for a car out of pocket and having a check written to cover all damages.Protecting Property - And LivesDrunk drivers are more likely to lack the proper insurance needed to pay for an accident, and yet are far more likely to cause them. A front-end collision could cause life-threatening injuries, and without the proper insurance, it is possible to get stuck with extremely high medical bills for years after the accident.Uninsured and under-insured motorist insurance helps to ensure that proper medical care is given, and will help to repair or replace a car that is involved in a catastrophic accident.
There is no reason one motorist would show another motorist a gun unless they were intending to intimidate or inspire fear, probably in the midst of a "road rage" type incident. Using a firearm in this manner is a crime, usually known as "brandishing a firearm."
If you were not involved in an accident with another vehicle, scrap your car (hopefully sell it for a minimal amount) and buy a new car- you don't have many options... If you were in an accident with another vehicle, and it was the other driver's fault, their insurance should pay for your damage...if it was your fault, you are liable for any damages personally.
If an individual has been in an accident, they should first call their insurance company. A good insurance company may send an agent to document the accident. If another motorist is involved, it is good to exchange information. Additionally, it is best to inform the police so traffic can be re-routed safely,
