I was in a 3 car accident. An uninsured motorist hit the car in front of me, the second vehicle (who has insurance) then hit my car. Doesn't the car who hit me become responsible for my damages?

AnswerYes, the At Fault party is responsible for your damages.


Keep in mind, in multi vehicle accidents, usually, the responsible party's insurance co. prorates the amounts paid (up to the policy's limit) among the claimants, meaning that at the end you may still be owed money, which the only way to collect is if you sue the person at fault for the accident.

Can you resolve a minor car accident without going through insurance?

That is usually up to you and the other party involved (if any), and it will highly depend on the extent of the damage. The worse the damage, the more likely you and/or any other party will be legally required to report. Generally, if an accident is multi-party, prudence dictates reporting: in the event one party decides to file claims or legal action later on.The option to fix the results of an accident yourself is more likely to be available if the accident is single-party (meaning the accident involved hitting a stationary object). Some may wish to employ this option for minor damage because either the cost to repair is too close or even under a deductible or because reporting such an incident can result in increased premiums.
