What should you do when you have been involved in a car accident?
If you have been involved in a car accident, the first thing that you should do is contact 911 if there have been any injuries, so that you can get medical attention. After that, you should make sure to take notes of what happened and photos if possible. You should also get the contact information for anyone involved in the accident, and report the accident to your insurance company.
If one has been involved in a bad car crash then they should contact the police and ambulance service as required. One must then contact their insurance company to let them know that their vehicle has been involved in an accident. The insurance company may then liaise with the police and get everything sorted for one's vehicle to be fixed or replaced.
If you loan your car to someone with a suspended license and they have an accident in your car would anything be covered?
What happens when a person with a suspended license is involved in an accident in another person's car and is not at fault?
Actually, they are at fault, or so it's presumed - if their license is suspended, they shouldn't have been driving, hence, they should not have been there to have been involved in an accident. On top of that, they've voided their insurance policy by driving on a suspended license, so the expenses will likely end up coming out of pocket.
The steps when one has been in a minor car accident where there are no injuries and minimal-to-no damage to both vehicles are still fairly similar to the steps involved in a major car accident. Drivers should turn on the hazard lights on their cars. Make sure to note the characteristics and license number of the other vehicle(s) involved. The police should be called immediately, even if nobody is injured and there is no major…
It depends entirely on your insurance, the other driver's insurance, who's at fault and what injuries and damage were involved. Nobody should 'make' money due to an accident, but they should be put back in the shape they were before the accident or compensated for what can't be returned to the original status.

What happens to your teenagers drivers license if they are in a car accident that is their fault in Indiana?
What happens if an uninsured driver in an insured car is cited for a traffic violation or is involved in an accident?
Insurance follows the car, not the driver. If you had permission to use it you should be fine. If you were cited for a traffic violation, you should just pay it ahead of time and then apologize profusely to your friend, since you just raised his rates for several years. If there was an accident and it involved any serious amount of money / injury, shell out the $70 and ask an attorney.

Do you have to tell your insurance policy that you were involved in an accident with a company car even though it was not your fault?
If you were not involved in an accident with another vehicle, scrap your car (hopefully sell it for a minimal amount) and buy a new car- you don't have many options... If you were in an accident with another vehicle, and it was the other driver's fault, their insurance should pay for your damage...if it was your fault, you are liable for any damages personally.
