Another fine example of irresponsible behavior by people who use their children as pawns in a divorce. Now you are in the uncomfortable position of either insuring your daughter's vehicle or demanding that the mother keep it in HER name. The daughter cannot legally own a vehicle until she is of age and as such, you are responsible since you have full custody. You would be wise to require that the mother put the vehicle in HER name until the daughter turns 18 and can be responsible for her own vehicle.

If she was driving your car, notify your agent. If it was her mom's car, then her insurance is responsible, and, of course, if your daughter was driving her own vehicle, she would have her own insurance.

What if your daughter has a car accident with your car?

This is actually a pretty complicated question. If you have insurance and your daughter is on your policy, you are covered. No worries. If you have insurance and your daughter has her own insurance, you are covered. If you have insurance and your daughter has no insurance, is not on your policy, and isn't part of your household, you are probably OK. Insurance will accept her as an alternate driver. If you have insurance and your daughter has no insurance and no license, you most likely have a rider on your insurance policy that says she is not a covered driver. You may be screwed. Depending on the state you live in, you may still have minimum liability and the other coverages may be void. If you have no insurance and your daughter doesn't either, you are screwed. The other driver and their insurance company will sue her (as driver) and you (as registered owner) and you are each jointly liable for the full amount of damage. With no insurance company to negotiate for you, you will be paying till it hurts.

Your daughter caused an auto accident while on your policy She no longer is on it and is being sued from the woman she ran into Does your insurance policy still have to pay?

They should as long as she was covered at the time the accident took place, it was reported, and an accident claim was filed.

more than likely it would be you and your daughter that are in trouble, considering that she was not on the insurance. so there for you will have to pay for the other ladies repairs out of your own pocket not to mention the insurance ticket.

Who insurance is responsible if your daughter was driving her boyfriends car and got into an accident and the other driver did not produce current coverage but your daughters boyfriend did?

There are several issues here. Who's fault was it to cause the accident. Are you in a "no fault" state? Did the other driver have insurance or just did not have proof? Does the boyfriend have a uninsured motorist rider on his policy? These are questions that have to be answered before we can proceed.

If your daughter is not a resident of your household but is named on your insurance how involved ar you if she drives her boyfriend's car?

I'm not sure I understand the question. If her boyfriend has insurance, then she is covered under his policy as long as she had permission to drive his car. As far as your liability if she has an accident, it all depends on the extent of the accident and if a law auit is filed for more than her boyfriend's policy limit. Then there could be potential to attack your insurance policy which names her as a driver.

If your daughter lets a friend drive your car and they have an accident who is responsible?

My boyfriend was driving my car and had an accident. My insurance company paid the damages but his insurance premiums went up. Mine did not increase. The points follow the driver. It has been a few years but I am not sure if it has changed. Your insurance agent should be able to inform you. I didn't want to call them at the time but I did and was assured even though they paid for it, I was not penalized nor were my premiums increased.

In a car accident.

What happens if your daughter drives your car with your permission but she is not insured as an additional driver on your policy and does not have her own insurance policy?

If she's stopped by the police, whe'll be cited for not having insurance. This means she'd then need to get insurance instantly (see the form SR-22), and report that to the court. Failure to do so can get her license suspended. If she is invovled in an accident with no insurance, the bills will all go to you. More, she will be cited for driviung without insurance (even if she didn't cause the accident). and, in an accident, this doesn't always result in a warning ticket -- sometimes there's a real penalty. I would suggest that, if she's a relatively new driver, you get her attached to your policy, as it'll usually cost less than getting her her own insurance. Your insurance agent can help with this.

Mother let her unlicensed daughter drive daughter caused a wreck does insurance have to cover?

Will your insurance company still pay for the damages to your car if your daughter who has no drivers license and who was not at fault for the accident drives the car at time of accident?

Probably not, as most policies only cover drivers not listed on the policy if they were given permission to drive. If you gave your unlicensed daughter permission to drive, then you can be issued a ticket. However, if the accident was not your daughter's fault, then the at fault party is responsible for the damage they caused to your vehicle, regardless if the other party was licensed or not.

Mother buys car for 35 year old daughter but car is in mothers name can she take daughter off insurance even though daughter is driving?

Yes, however it would be foolish of any person to uninsure a vehicle they own while they know it's being driven. Not only can the owner of the vehicle be issued a citation if a driver of their vehicle is caught without insurance, but if the driver causes an accident and their is no insurance on the vehicle, the owner of the car can be held responsible for the damages caused.

If your 21 year old daughter who is covered on your insurance policy drives another person's car is that owner's insurance liable in case of an accident or is yours?

That will depend on the laws of the state you reside in. You can get detailed information at your state's department of Insurance - they probably have a web site. It will also depend on the language of your auto policy - read section regarding "Other Insurance".
