If they can tell it was damaged before, then it's up to the adjuster to give you what he thinks it's worth.

Will homeowners insurance cover damage to car from a fallen tree?

It depends on whether or not the car carried comprehensive insurance. If it did the auto owner's insurance would cover the tree damage, regardless of the cause. If the car did not have comp. coverage, then the car owner may be able to make a liability claim against the tree owner's homeowners insurance coverage. If the homeowner's insurance denies the claim, the car owner can still seek a civil award against the homeowner's personal assets.

What do you pay before you insurance begins payinh?

It depends on your insurance company, and what kind of insurance you are talking about. Car insurance, you pay deductible if you are at fault and they'll cover the rest of the repairs. If someone else is at fault, that driver will usually pay everything with their insurance. Home insurance, you pay for repairs that are not covered (ie plumber, appliance repair). However, your insurance will pay for any damage that was caused to the actual structure of your home. Say you have a leaky pipe, you pay the plumber, but they'll come in and cover all the damage the leak did. Same for an appliance like a washing machine or a dishwasher/fridge. If those leak and damage your floor or cabinets, you pay to repair it but insurance may cover the damage that was done. Most people have a deductible that you still have to pay but beyond that, they'll pay the rest. Hope that answers your question. ^_^

Do ipod touch screen protectors cover cracks?

Yes and no. Depending on where you bought it, the device may still be under warranty, but that may not cover damage from someone dropping it (for example). Also, if you purchased insurance for the device, that usually will cover the damage. But if not, you may have to pay to replace it. And I am told that the newer versions have screens that are more difficult to break.

If a homeowner does some plumbing DIY and the plumbing fails and causes damage will the insurance company still cover it?

In most countries, insurance companies will only pay out if a registered plumbing contractor has done the job and caused damage. This way its easier for insurance companies to stop insurance fraud because the damage caused by the plumber will be backed up by invoices and service agreements. To save yourself the headache, and the possibilities of causing damage to your house, if you can afford the cost call a registered plumber to do the job.

Your boyfriend got in an accident wyour car your car doesn't have insurance on it He is still listed on his parents insurance policy Are they responsible for your damage the damage to the other car?

The parents insurance will not cover any damage to your vehicle. It is possible but not likely that his parents insurance will cover damage, injuries and property damage to the other party. There is a non-owned vehicle clause in most insurance policies that will cover damages but this is designed for loaner vehicles from the dealership, rental cars, and vehicles that are borrowed on a very limited basis, ex, your boyfriend borrow my pick up truck once every 5 years to move a couch. Chances are that because of your relationship to your boyfriend an insurance company is not going view this as a limited basis. Aside from all of this, if you live in a state other than NH or WI you are required to carry auto insurance on any vehicle you have a license plate for, regardless if you drive it or not.

Mobile phone insurance usually still requires a deductible to get a new phone in the case of theft or damage to your smartphone. Still, it is a much better deal than having to pay upwards of $500 for a new smartphone without the insurance.
