i believe you can actually file suit against the driver and the owner of the vehichle so my lawyer told me
Of course, age doesn't matter. If you have a valid license and have a current insurance policy you can claim the accident.
It could be, I would file a claim to make sure.
You can file a claim with the at fault drivers Insurance Company yourself. You don't have to wait for the insured to do it. Just call them up report the accident and request a claim number. They are required by law to assign an adjuster whether or not their insured has reported it to them.
If a person is listed as a driver on someones insurance they can file a claim themselves. The person living abroad can also initiate a claim on behalf of the driver if they wish too.
In the state of Arizona, there is no specified time limit in which an insurance company has to settle a claim with an insured party or with a third party that has filed a claim. An individual does have a time limit of two years in which to file a lawsuit against the driver who was at fault in an accident.
Yes. As long as you were insured when the accident happened they will pay the claim.
It is up to the driver to subit the auto accident claim. You should submit the claim as soon as possible after the accident.
If a claim is made against his insurance...yes.
They will have a pink card stating the insurance company on it still, as long as the accident happened in the one day they were insured.
well i don't know are they? ''causing'' makes me thing you were the 'at fault' party, so if what you are asking is, the insured driver (you) were negliegent/at fault for the accident, but simply because the injured party was not insured do you still owe for their damage? yes you do, makes no difference if they were insured or not (now, they might have some trouble come up from this), if they were an innocent and you negligentthen you (your company) owe for their damage......some states may have statues that bar an uninsured driver/owner from recovery, so might check (you need to turn in the claim your adjuster will know) but I've never worked a claim in a state that had this (handled claims in around 15-20 different states i'd guess).
You can only claim against the rental company if the driver took out their insurance. If he has his own separate insurance, that is where you need to make the claim.
When a passenger is injured in an automobile accident, and the driver of the automobile of which he/she is the passenger of, is "at Fault" for the accident, the passenger of that vehicle has the legal right to file a claim against that drivers insurance carrier. If on the other hand, the driver of the other vehicle is "at fault", then the passenger of vehicle that is "not at fault", has the legal right to file a claim against the other driver's insurance carrier. And whenever there are injuries sustained in an automobile accident, you should contact personal injury attorney or law firm to represent you against the filing of your claim against any insurance carrier. "At fault" accidents are not final just because a citation has been issued. When a carrier receives a claim against their company, they will launch their own investigation of the cause of accident, and review the police report, and speak with any independent and passenger witnesses who can provide statements concerning how the accident happened.At the end of the carrier's investigation, which will also include, taking pictures of both of the vehicles damages, will compile all of the information they get, to try to determine at that point, who was at fault. If their insured is determined to be at fault, the carrier will pay the claim for which the passenger has filed against them. If the carrier determines that the other driver was at fault, then the carrier will not pay the claim and deny liability. If this happens, the passengers legal representatives will automatically withdraw their lawsuit filed on your behalf, and file the lawsuit against the other drivers insurance carrier.I was in a one car accident where the car ran off the road to avoid hitting something. I was the passenger of the car. If my medical insurance from my job pay for the my hospital bills is the insurance company intitle to pay me back the money even though my insurance covered itIn the UK - the passenger would make a claim against the driver at fault. This driver would pass the details to his insurer who would indemnify him for the claim made against him. A passenger could not make a claim against his own insurer. To see the process for making a claim in the UK see the related link entitled "motor vehicle accident".
If your car is insured you need not to worry about accident claim. Company will start a verification process and if possible it'll pay your loss. Second option is you should hire private companies dealing in accident compensation claim.
Yes.. but make sure you have good documentation with dates on the accident reports.
The company files claim in which you got insured your car, and after a deep verification it reimbursed your compensation.
Generally, the owner of the insured car is held liable for any damages or losses involved after an accident. So if you want to file a claim for compensation after a crash, it is better to file it with the owner of the insured car or his insurance company. The adult unlicensed driver however, can be held liable criminally if there was death or injury involved.
You still could pursued the claim under the vehicle. If the vehicle that hit your is being insured by Allstate Insurance, you should be able to set up the claim under that vehicle. Allstate might try to denied your claim based on unscheduled driver but they might get your car fixed with no question ask if you have a police/accident report.
Can Insurance deny claim for accident death benifit due to ethanol intoxication when insured had policy for 10 years?
If it is the uninsured driver's fault in the accident, you can still file a lawsuit against the uninsured driver but you'll only be able to recover from their personal assets, which in many states won't be much because many states allow you to shield many personal assets from this sort of recovery. You will also be filing a claim against your own Uninsured Motorist (UM) coverage on your insurance policy.
If you are at fault in the accident than the other driver will make a claim to your insurance co.If the other driver sues you than pass the paper work to your insurance co and let them handle the case.
Not necessarily unless the 'owner' is also the parent of the underage driver. If not, assuming the car was insured, the insurance company may deny the claim. If the vehicle was not insured, then it becomes a civil matter where the owner of the vehicle may be sued by the accident victim and may be found responsible for not having had the vehicle insured if it is the law in your state. If this is the case, and you are not related to the young driver who stole your vehicle, then you have a civil case against that minor's parents and they would in turn be liable and responsible for any damages you may have been made responsible for.
Report the accident to your insurance company. If this was a single car accident - meaning yours- your insurance will have to pay for the repairs minus your deductible. If another party caused the accident you need to turn their insurance information over to your company and they will take it from there.
A non fault car accident claim indicates that the insured individual does not have to incur any loss. The additional advantage is that the policy holder gets reimbursed by the company that he or she has been a member of.
Assuming your friend has insurance, they would file a claim against the other insurnace company. If your friend doesn't have insurance, you'll have to pursue your firend civillay to recover damages. Insurance follows the driver, not the car, so it doesn't matter which state the accident was in.
