Well, it would be your insurance that covers the damage, and it depends on what type of coverage you have. You should ask your insurance rep. No, you are not automatically At Fault merely because you were ineligible to drive at that moment. However, you may have a hard time proving that your DWI had nothing to do with causing the collision.

If you were in a car accident and the other person was at fault but at the time I was intoxicated?

The question posed assumes that I was in an accident in which the other person was at fault. Although you (the person posing the question) admit to being intoxicated at the time, what needs to be clarified is your relationship to the accident. First, are we talking about three people (me, the other person, and an intoxicated you) or just two (you and the other person)? Second, were you a driver of one of the vehicles? a pedestrian? Third, perhaps, is: 'How did I get involved in the accident?' Finally, what is the substance of your question? For starters, are you asking about criminal law or civil liability.

Who is responsible if a customer leaves a restaurant intoxicated and gets into an accident?

The customer's lawyer is going to say the restaurant is responsible but there are many factors to take into account. If the customer was visibly intoxicated the restaurant might be liable.Serving another drink to a person already visibly intoxicated would leave the establishment at at least some fault. HOWEVER, there are many people who do not show that many signs of intoxication and it is not up to the restaurant to determine the patrons level of inebriation.Truly, the fault lies with the drinker as he is the one that drank the drinks. Each action has consequences and drinking to much is 99.9% the fault of the drinker.

Person rents a vehicle and denies rental company's insurance drives off without any kind of insurance theirs or personal and hits you If you don't have UM who's liable?

The person who is at fault in the accident is liable for the damages. If they have an insurance policy to pay on their behalf then the at fault person may not have to pay out of their own pocket for the damages. However if the at fault person has no insurance then they are personally responsible for the damage caused. In the case where the at fault person has no coverage and the not-at-fault party did not carry Collision or UMPD coverage then the only option may be to take the at fault party to court and attempt to get them to pay. Good luck.
