If there is no other vehicle involved in the accident, then the only person who can be at fault is the underage driver.
The other driver should be paying if they were at fault; you may sue them for your deductible in small claims court if they had no insurance.
It does not matter to an insurance company that the other driver had a suspended license. Liability is determined by the factors of the accident and the evidence put forth. The fact that the other driver had no license does not affect liability or the handling of the claim.
The license status of the other driver has no bearing on your liability. If you were at fault you are still responsible for any damages and injuries. Just report it to your insurance company as you would any other accident.
Who is at fault has to do with the accident itself not the insurance coverage. A police report of the accident and looking at the proximate cause of the accident help determine fault.
unless the person meant to do it then you can
Shouldn't do provided other driver is identified.
The driver at fault is liable for the collision, regardless of the other driver's actions post-collision. The fleeing driver may later be brought up on Hit and Run or Leaving the Scene of an Accident charges, but that will not change the at fault liability.
Unable to answer - too little is known about the circumstances of the accident. Was the driver of the car you were in at fault? Was the driver of the other car at fault? Submit your medical claims to the appropriate insurance company and wait to be contacted for an offer.
Yes, the driver who was at fault is responsible for the bodily injury for anyone who has been hurt in the accident. The percentage of payment that has to be made would depend upon the percentage of fault for the accident, the prevaling norms of the state or province where the accident ocurred.
The uninsured driver, assuming they are at fault, can expect to be pursued civilly by either the other driver's insurance company or the other driver. The uninsured motorist can be sued for damages and any other expenses incurred as a result of the accident, including court costs.
I was recently involved in a car accident in which the driver of the other car is legally at fault. Is the other party's insurance still liable for damages involved if the at fault driver is: 1. not the owner of the car, 2. not the insurer of the car, 3. does not have a license. Thanks!
The at fault driver is responsible regardless of who has or does not have insurance. You were at fault, you get the bill. Fortunately though you have insurance. So they get the bill.
The one in reverse is most probably at fault here!
Te other driver may have been found at fault for the accident, but your charge of DUI is a separate offense. It is against thw law ANYWHERE to drive under the influence, whether you get into an accident or not.
They can be sued by the other driver for damamges (if at fault). If not at fault, they may have a very difficult time getting insurance in the future and when they do, the premiums will be through the roof.
The liability, or fault-factor in an accident has nothing to do with whether or not a driver was licensed. The liability in an accident at an uncontrolled intersection can be shared. Several factors go into a case like that & would need to be fully investigated to determine.
If the other vehicle was parked, there was no other driver to have license, insurance or registration. The driver who hit the parked vehicle is at fault and is liable for all damages to the parked vehicle.
If the other person or driver was at fault as you say, Then all you have to do is file a claim on that persons liability insurance. Hopefully you exchanged information at the scene of the accident.
Yes and No. No insurance company will ever insure an un-licensed driver. However, if a non-licensed driver is in an accident, where not at fault, with another driver who is insured, that insurance may still cover the injuries of the non-licensed driver. This is very tricky, though. Some states have a type of fault where if you were partially at fault for the accident as well, you may have your damages reduced by the % you are at fault; other states will determine that if you are 50% at fault, you get nothing. So, if a state were to determine that you being un-licensed to drive was worth 50% of the fault (that is, you should never have been there for the accident to occur at all), you might not get any coverage whatsoever. So, it depends on whether or not (and to what extent) you were at fault, and what your particular state's policies are for liability.
If the other party is refusing to call their insurance company - then you should call their insurance company and file the claim.
Take the driver to small claims court for the cost of the rental.
The driver at fault is always responsible for damages incurred during an accident. The at fault insurance company is responsible for damages to your car.
The owners name and address should be listed on the accident report as well as the driver of the vehicle and who was at fault in the accident.
Well, you have the obligation to yield right of way, but if the other driver was cited then it's likely his fault. A copy of the accident report will clearly state which driver is at fault.
