You could try but I doubt you would prevail. What liability do you think the leinholder has in the accident? You need to sue the driver of the car that hit you.

Yes, if your car is related in an accident or crime it can be impounded for being part of it.

They are at fault, even if that fault is shared jointly. That car is not supposed to be on the roadway, period. Therefore, it's assumed the accident would not have happened if that car hadn't been there. The driver will be cited for driving without insurance, and the car will be impounded.

If the accident was caused by the uninsured driver than the uninsured driver is definitely still responsible.

I think you'll get your car impounded.(in the USA)

They will have to take the uninsured driver to court. Or if you have uninsured driver policy with your insurance, they will pay it.

Your car has obviously been towed away and impounded so you are going to have to find out what towing company took it. If you have been in an accident then it's in a police impound. May not be in a police impound unless they are doing an investigation which requires it to be impounded. It depends on where it is. Was it repossessed? Was it left on the side of the road? Was it parked in a no parking zone? Was it parked in a reserved spot?

The uninsured part would mean that the person or persons responsible would have to pay for it. If they have an accident in someone elses car they will probably be questioned in court.

If you are hit by an Uninsured Driver you should take the following actions- Contact the police, get information from and on any witnesses that saw the accident and get photographs of the vehicles and the accident scene. Another important step to take beforehand of the accident is to make sure you have Uninsured Motorist Insurance on your Car Policy.

Underinsurer or uninsured Property damage coverage pays for damage to your vehicle if another vehicle is at fault for the accident but is uninsured or underinsured.

Uninsured will not cover this type of accident. Your comprehensive will cover this type of damage.

Usually an uninsured motorist accident is not chargeable against insured in any way. Your rates should not be effected at all with most insurance companies.

No. The state is not responsible for the accident or the driver. You can file suit against the uninsured motorist.

If you weren't making your payments yes. It would only be repossessed if you weren't making your payments.

No. Generally, your policy covers you and your own car. It is illegal to drive an uninsured vehicle in almost every state. If there is an accident, there will be no coverage, the car will be impounded and you will be arrested. However, insurance laws vary from state to state. You should speak with an agent who does business in your state.

If the uninsured driver had the permission of the insured driver to operate the vehicle then NOTHING will happen to the uninsured driver. In fact, in this case he or she is not an uninsured driver at all. The insurance follows the vehicle first, the driver second.

Same as if it where 2 cars. The uninsured driver will be sited and then your insurance will pay for the repairs and try and collect from the uninsured driver, if you have uninsured or underinsured coverage, if not you can take the uninsured driver to small claims court.

Bad news. If you are uninsured, do not have an accident. If you can manage to pay the other person for the damages in an arrangement that is satisfactory to both of you, then you could be off the hook. Otherwise, you are looking at some major trouble.

Uninsured motorist covers you in the case you are in an accident with another driver that does not have insurance. Comprehensive coverage is what will pay when you hit a deer.

Even if a driver was uninsured, the driver who was at fault is responsible for paying for repairs. Not having insurance does not take away responsibility.

Assuming in this instance the uninsured driver is the one at fault, he or she is still liable for any property damage & personal injuries that may have resulted from the accident. The injured party will make a claim against his or her uninsured motorist policy. But that insurance company can, and often will, sue the uninsured driver.

As you failed to tke a insurance, you will have to pay from your pocket entirely.

You can certainly get in serious trouble for having your vehicle uninsured.

Bad things, will mostly likely get a few citation from police. If he is found to be at fault he could be liable for the damage.
