Not with respect to personal auto insurance. However, when commercial auto insurance is involved, especially fleet coverage, there sometimes is. It is not called a deductible, but a "self-insured retention". The insured selects an amount that it is willing to pay toward the indemnity of a third party before the insurer's obligation to pay is triggered.

There is not deductible with liability insurance coverage. Liability pays the party who is not fault for their damages without a deductible. If you were at fault collision would pay for damages to your vehicle but you will have a deductible of whatever you selected when you purchased the insurance policy.

If you are going through your own insurance, you are responsible for your collision deductible. If the other person is at fault, you can go through their insurance under their liability coverage so you do not have to pay a deductible.

Because this was an at-fault incident, the 500.00 deductible is your responsibility. You as the owner of the vehicle allowed your friend to drive the car to begin with. Your friend in all fairness should pay you the 500 dollars. Why is your friend's insurance paying you? Your own comprehensive/collision policy should pay you (less the deductible) and then "subrogate" the claim to your friend's auto or general liability insurance or sue him directly if he has no insurance and send you the deductible after they have collected.

Full coverage auto insurance covers everything. If the car is totaled they will will replace it. Liability auto insurance will only cover medical bills, and not the car if it is totaled.

No. Liability insurance covers damage you do to someone else's property. Theft would be covered by comprehensive insurance. In most jurisdictions, liability insurance is required but comprehensive is not.
