Car insurance:liabiltityNo. Because liability only covers the damages to the other persons car in an accident.

"3. Property Damage Liability

This coverage pays for damage you (or someone driving the car with your permission) may cause to someone else's property. Usually, this means damage to someone else�s car, but it also includes damage to lamp posts, telephone poles, fences, buildings or other structures your car hit."

See the link below for more information on coverage.

AnswerNo. Liability takes care of the other driver and his vehicle only. AnswerNo. Unfortunately, liability only covers the OTHER guy's car. If you do not buy the "comprehensive and collision" coverage, YOUR car is only covered if the OTHER guy is At Fault. AnswerIn the UK there are three main types of car insurance: 1. third party; 2. third party fire and theft and 3. comprehensive. The first type will not pay for damage to your vehicle in any event; the second will pay if damage to your car is caused due to fire or theft and the third will pay in any event for damage to your vehicle.

If however damage is caused by the user of another vehicle you will be entitled to claim compensation from the other driver's motor insurance for your vehicle damage and if no insurance is in place form the Motor Insurers Bureau. See the related link entitled "car accident claim" to see how to show legal fault for your car accident.

What happens after your car is totaled and you only have liability?

If a car is totaled in an accident and only liability insurance is present, there is a chance that the other party's insurance will pay for the vehicle if the accident was their fault.

This will not release the registered owner from paying for the vehicle, either, if money is still owed on the car.

What does the your insurance company do to a car if it is totaled and you only have liability coverage?

If you caused the accident and you totaled your car and you only have liability insurance, your insurance company does not do anything to your car. The car was taken away by the tow truck driver. You may pay to haul it somewhere to be repaired or you may sell it to a junk yard. If the other driver caused the accident, then his insurance company buys your car. It still goes to a junk yard to be recycled. That way, however, you will get some money. Either way, you are entitled to get your personal stuff out of the car.


A car with liability insurance only is borrowed and in an accident Car is totaled Whose insurance will cover?

When a car is borrowed (with permission) the insurance of the car owner is primary and the insurance of the driver is secondary. Here, the car owner has no coverage to pay for the damage to his/her own car, so the driver's liability insurance would cover the cost of the car. That is assuming the driver has liability insurance, if the driver doesn't have liability insurance, the car owner is stuck (unless he sues the driver).
