Coverage depends on a couple of things. What type of policy you purchased, and/or whether or not your son is an excluded driver on your policy.

Since your son is a household resident and therefore considered to have access to the keys, he is a legally defined permissive use driver even if without your knowledge, this situation can not legally be considered a theft.

Named driver policies only provide coverage to those named on the policy. There are no exceptions. The policy is cheaper but you can't just hand your keys out to anyone anymore no matter who they are. Limited Lines polices can be more affordable but coverage for unlisted divers is not provided under any circumstances.

If you have a standard form auto insurance policy and your son is not excluded, then you should have coverage even though your son took it without your knowledge. if this is the case, call them back and tell them you need the claim reviewed by a senior adjuster.

Answer

Depends. I think they may pay for it if you press charges against your son for theft.

Answer

Yes, obviously the young man would not have been a licensed driver and therefore not validly insured.

Answer

The law presumes (as do insurers) that parents of minor children are financially and legally responsible regardless of the act. The insure has no legal obligation to pay a claim under such circumstances.

Answer

A parent cannot request a minor child be charged with a criminal act as described as the child was in the custody of said parent and the parent is held directly responsible for the minor child's action regardless of the circumstances.

Can you drive a mans car without permission from his spouse?

I would not drive a man's car if his wife said I couldn't no matter what. Legally, the person who is the policyholder on the insurance and the owner of the vehicle has to give you permission to drive. If you drive it on a regular basis, you must be listed as a driver on the insurance policy. If you drive the car without permission, and have an accident, you will not have coverage under the insurance policy.

Can someone put your car on their insurance policy without your permission and without you being listed as a driver?

Who knows. Even if they do, you have no insurance coverage and they have wasted their money. The insurance company can not and will not pay any claims arising out of any incidents with a vehicle that does not belong to to the policyholder. Purchase your own insurance. It is a legally binding contract in which you state that you own the vehicle and that you have listed all household members and/or drivers and that you agree to notify the insurance carrier of any changes to such.


Does a insurance adjuster have to investigate for you to make a claim?

If a friend borrows your car without permission and gets into an accident will his insurance cover it?

First of all a friend does not borrow your car without your permission- if they used it without your permission they really arent your friend and they technically stole your car- Unauthorized use of a motor vehicle- Their insurance will cover them only if you file a complaint with the police stating that the person did not have your permission to use the car. Otherwise your insurance will cover the loss and your rate may jump or you may get cancelled. Your call- depends on how much the claim is and how good the friend is
