A persons Immigration status has no bearing on your liability. If you were At Fault then you are liable for the damages you caused.

First of all you are really lucky that this accident was not your fault. The person who was at fault is responsible for your vehicle damages. If he is insured, then it is his insurance company that is responsible. ** Depending on your states laws, you can loose your drivers license for up to a year for not having insurance and being involved in an accident. If you received a citation at the scene of the accident for no insurance, you need to pay for that also.

yes. Unfortunately many of the people who are responsible for accidents are irrsponsible in their personal lives, have no insurance and have nothing of value. Often you don't get anything from the uninsured drivers who cause your accidents.

You hope that the other driver responsible in the crash has insurance that covers uninsured drivers and then you sue your friend!

If both drivers have no insurance and do not file a police report, each driver is responsible for repairing the damage to his/her own vehicle.

Driving is considered a privilege and not a right. Because it is a privilege drivers are required to prove they are financially responsible. Mandatory auto insurance is proof that drivers are financially responsible to cover damages or injuries in the event of an accident. Because most drivers cannot reasonably pay for the cost of repairs and medical bills they cause in an at fault accident, states require auto insurance to protect both third party drivers and the policyholder.

Obviously you are responsible for the damages, the car is in your name, is it not? Maybe you should date better drivers.

== == In the event that you got into a car accident and it was not your fault but the other driver's, if he is insured, his insurance company is liable to pay for the damages of your vehicle. On the other hand, if the other driver is not insured, your own insurance company, provided you have a policy regarding uninsured or underinsured drivers, will be responsible for the damages your vehicle has incurred. They however, may have a right of action against the person responsible for the accident. The person who caused the damage to your vehicle is ultimately responsible for the damage to your vehicle regardless of whether there is an applicable insurance coverage or not. Whether you actually have the repairs done is none of their business.

The amount of a claim from an accident has no bearing on the drivers legal requirement for financial responsibility. All drivers are required to carry financial responsibility before they drive. whether or not they have had an accident

The employee will be personally liable for any fines or sanctions for driving without a license. However, the business will be responsible for damages if the employee was driving as part of work responsibilities.

you would be the payer of the damage done to your own car.

I am not positive but I would guess that (saying your BF is at fault)1) Your insurance will not cover your car since it was driven by someone without a liceance2) Your BF's insurance is not valid since he does not have a drivers liceance (even though it is active)3) You will be personally responsible for the damages to your car and your BF will be responseable to any damages he has cause during the accident.

Vehicle insurance is one of the most important things a driver can buy. Without insurance, some drivers involved in an accident can be stuck with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damages that they have to pay.

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.

No. Since the other driver was found to be at fault he will be responsible for his own damages. Your insurance company will pay for any damage you have and then go to his company to be reimbursed since it was the other drivers fault. If the person you hit failed to yield to oncoming traffic and was ticketed I fail to understand why you are concerned that you would be responsible for the damages to that person's car. If you are stating the facts correctly, then the failure to yield guy should be responsible for YOUR damages. At least that is the law in Arkansas. Hopes this helps put your mind at ease.

older drivers are more responsible for accident because cause of small height not look all sides.

no it just means they're safe drivers. if they anticipate an accident at any given time they can plan an emergency maneuver to avoid being involved in said accident.

Uninsured drivers become subject to license and vehicle registration suspension when accident damages amount to:

If you have been involved in an accident with a Semi Truck, the first thing you should do is get medical help, even if you feel fine, you could have injuries. Afterwards, call the police. Exchange information with the other drivers involved in the accident. Get their license numbers and insurance information.

You will get a ticket for these violations but if you bring them with you to court and they show that you were licensed and insured on the date of the accident, these charges will be dismissed.

Sometime in their lifetime, almost every driver will be involved in a car crash. Laws pertaining to car crashes are set individually by each state, but these laws tend to be somewhat similar. If you have been involved in a car accident, therefore, investigate you particular state's laws regarding your legal options. One of the most important laws about car accidents and driving in general is the need for drivers to be insured. Driving without auto insurance can be a misdemeanor in many states, punishable by a ticket, fine or a revocation of the individual's driver's license. In some states, an individual without car insurance who is involved in an accident is automatically responsible for the accident. Many states have enacted laws requiring police officers called to the scene of an accident to issue one or more drivers a ticket. This ticket effectively identifies those drivers as being responsible for the accident. In a court of law, this responsibility could be used to prove guilt for a criminal violation or responsibility to pay for the other driver or passenger's damages. In other states, however, courts are unconcerned with responsibility for the accident. In these cases, compensation awards are calculated based on each driver's percentage of fault for the accident. Therefore, even though one individual isn't labeled as responsible, he or she may still be found liable for damages. Because of the abundance of car accident litigation many states now require litigants to attend mediation prior to taking the case to trial. In mediation, the parties try to work out an acceptable settlement. If negotiation fails, the parties may then present the case to a judge or jury. Most car crash claims are settled by an award of money to an injured party. The difficult thing is that, in states where no parties is identified as responsible for the car accident, every party, including the defendant, in a lawsuit can be awarded damages. In such a situation, the amount of damages is offset against each other, with any person with an amount due after this offset is entitled to payment. There are two main types of damage awards: economic and non-economic. Non-economic damages are awarded for those things that do not have an easily ascribable amount, such as pain and suffering. To recover damages for injuries sustained in a car crash, the injured party must prove that the injuries or other damage were caused by the accident. There must be, therefore, a causal relationship between the accident and claimed damages. A claim lacking proof of this relationship may be denied.

Drivers impaired by alcohol and drugs are responsible for over 40% of automobile fatalities.

In the United States of America, all states do not require drivers to have auto insurance, however the drivers are still fully financially obligated to pay for any damages in an event of an accident.
