Take them to small claims court for the damages. If they didn't have permission, you should have reported it stolen and had them arrested.

Does uninsured motorist coverage cover an uninsured driver of the car in a single car accident?

No. Uninsured motorist coverage protects the owner of the vehicle which is damaged due to the actions of an uninsured driver of another vehicle (or damage caused by a hit-and-run driver). I think what you are asking is known as a 'permissive' driver - someone who was driving another person's vehicle with the owner's permission, but who is not actually named on the policy. The answer to this is 'probably' depending on the insurance company and the provisions of the policy itself, but if provided for would cover them like they were a named insured on the policy.

If someone borrows your car and has an accident and they have a non car collision and you have no insurance are they responsible to pay for your car?

You loaned him the vehicle knowing your property was uninsured, that is usually considered a risk you accepted. It also subjects both you and the driver to certain fines and penalties. You could be held equally and seperately liable (100%) for anything and anyone he hit while driving your uninsured car with your permission. Never drive a car without insurance on it and certainly don't loan it out to others. You might have some luck in a small claims court as far as your property damage. just depends on what your agreement was when he borrowed it

What do you do if you get into a accident with someone who does not have insurance and you are not at fault?

Most no fault insurance laws protect the not-at-fault party. Your insurance will indemnify your loss and penalize the un-insured motorist. DO NOT make outside deals with an uninsured person after an accident as this limits your ability to make claim.


What happens if my car was driven by someone without my permission and he gets in an accident?

If they took your car without you permission, it is a vehicle theft. You would not be civily liable for an accident. Where the waters get muddied however, is if that person has driven the car with your permission in the past. He could use that as a defense in a criminal matter, because he could say that the permission to use the car "stands". It is doubtful you would incur any liabilty.

Coverage To Drive?

If you are driving a car in the state of Illinois, then you need to carry insurance on the vehicle. Uninsured motorists can get insurance at affordable rates if they know where to look. There is a minimum amount of coverage that the driver needs to have on their insurance. This amount is not high so that drivers can get insurance coverage at an affordable rate. However, if a driver wants to take a risk and let someone else drive their car, they need to carry uninsured motorist insurance on their policy. The minimum amount for this coverage is $20,000. This covers the driver of the car if they were in an accident and were not covered under an insurance policy. In the event of a car accident and the driver of your car or the other car were not covered under their own insurance policy, the uninsured motorist coverage would protect not only yourself but the other drivers in the accident. The coverage will pay for any medical necessities that are incurred during the accident and any wages that are lost. The coverage will only pay up to the amount that you have on your insurance policy. Anything over this amount will be the responsibility of the driver. If the accident was the fault of the other driver, then their insurance will cover up to the amount listed on their policy and then your insurance will cover the remaining amount. An uninsured policy is different than an underinsured policy. An underinsured driver has insurance, but they may not have enough coverage to pay for the expenses if the driver were in an accident. An uninsured motorist has no insurance at all. The only way that an uninsured motorist can usually drive a vehicle is if there is a family member who has taken out the uninsured motorist coverage on their insurance. An uninsured policy is not expensive to get, but it would be best for the driver to obtain their own policy as soon as possible.


What could happen to an uninsured driver even if they have received a car insurance quote?
