As a broker, I can tell you NO, there is no coverage if you are At Fault. Now if you are only partially at fault, example, 50%, and it's proven, there may be coverage under your carrier. I'm in Canada where things are a bit different but it wouldn't hurt you to try right?

The Ins and Outs of Uninsured Motorist Insurance in Virginia?

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.

What should you do if an uninsured motorist hits your car and it is their fault?

That's what Uninsured and Underinsured motorist coverage is for. You have that on your insurance policy. I have been in this situation. The first thing you do is talk to your insurance company. Tell them about the accident and how it is their fault. It is better if you provide proof like police report or written statements, but if not, it depends on how your insurance company rules it. From there, your insurance company should tell you what your options are. Most likely, they would go after the uninsured motorist and make them pay. You don't even need to deal with the uninsured motorist.


What does uninsured motorist coverage mean?

Uninsured motoristUninsured Motorist coverage (which is required coverage in many states) covers injuries that the driver and occupants of a car sustain when the at-fault vehicle was not insured for liability coverage. UM does not cover the physical damage to the vehicle. UMPD (uninsured motorist property damage), where available, covers that physical damage. UMPD is essentially similar to collision coverage, which is first party insurance that pays regardless of fault, subject to a deductible.Uninsured motorist coverage pays essentially the same type of benefits (such as for pain and suffering) as the liability insurance of the other party would pay if the at-fault party had liability insurance. Additionally, the uninsured motorist insurer will generally evaluate a claimant's injuries in much the same way as a liability insurer would, and the claimant is subject to a reduction in damages for contributory or comparative negligence according to the law of the jurisdiction.


Will liability insurance pay off your vehicle if it is totaled?

Your own liability insurance will never pay for the damage to your property or for your medical expenses. Your collision insurance pays for damage to your property, if it is your fault. Your Uninsured Motorist Insurance or Underinsured Motorist Insurance pays for damage to your property if caused by someone else who is uninsured or under-insured. Your liability insurance will pay for the damage to someone else's property or for someone else's medical expenses, if it is your fault. Someone else's liability insurance will pay for the damage to your property or for your medical expenses, if it is their fault.

Understanding Uninsured Motorist Insurance In New Jersey?

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.
