Uninsured Motorist coverage
If you do not have an uninsured motorist property damage coverage, your collision might be used to pay for the repairs to your car, in which case your collision coverage deductible will be used.
Yes you do need an uninsured motorist insurance. The state of New Jersey requires everyone to have obtained at least a $15,000 cover for their car(s) before taking them to the road.

Uninsured motorist coverage
I hope you had insurance for this. The uninsured motorist will probably be broke
That's what Uninsured and Underinsured motorist coverage is for. You have that on your insurance policy. I have been in this situation. The first thing you do is talk to your insurance company. Tell them about the accident and how it is their fault. It is better if you provide proof like police report or written statements, but if not, it depends on how your insurance company rules it. From there, your insurance company should tell you what your options are. Most likely, they would go after the uninsured motorist and make them pay. You don't even need to deal with the uninsured motorist.
If you purchased uninsured motorists coverage with your policy you will be covered. The SR22 is not insurance, it's certificate of proof that you have insurance.
Yes they should. Did you carry uninsured motorist? The only issue is if your car had a driver that did not have a license or was living in your home and you did not tell them about this person.
You need to have uninsured motorist insurance as a rider on your insurance. If not you will have to sue the uninsured driver.
"Stacked" refers to uninsured motorist coverage, not to liability or physical damage coverage. In essence, if there are two cars in a household, both with insured motorist coverage, the uninsured motorist limits of the cars can be "stacked"--added together. Naturally, this will only make a difference if the severity of the injury and the clarity of the liability is such as to warrant that size of a payment to the insured. Keep in mind that the assessment of damages by an insurer in an uninsured motorist claim is similar to that done by a liability insurer in a third-party claim. Note also that some states have "anti-stacking" statutes which prohibit the stacking of ininsured motorist limits.
I think. if ur under 18.
First, be sure that you have property damage coverage under your uninsured motorist as well as bodily injury. Then, be sure that you have filed a police report. If you have both of these things, there is a good chance you have coverage, but the final determination is up to the company.
There's a good chance the insurance company will deny the claim of the person with the uninsured vehicle, as that vehicle isn't supposed to be on the roadway to begin with.
This depends on the specific state's laws in which you live. Generally in a pile-up the insurance companies duke it out, and often each goes through his/her own company for coverage, which would leave the uninsured motorist with no coverage for their vehicle. For injuries, depending on fault, you may possibly draw from the uninsured motorist coverage.
Its your fault
Uninsured motoristUninsured Motorist coverage (which is required coverage in many states) covers injuries that the driver and occupants of a car sustain when the at-fault vehicle was not insured for liability coverage. UM does not cover the physical damage to the vehicle. UMPD (uninsured motorist property damage), where available, covers that physical damage. UMPD is essentially similar to collision coverage, which is first party insurance that pays regardless of fault, subject to a deductible.Uninsured motorist coverage pays essentially the same type of benefits (such as for pain and suffering) as the liability insurance of the other party would pay if the at-fault party had liability insurance. Additionally, the uninsured motorist insurer will generally evaluate a claimant's injuries in much the same way as a liability insurer would, and the claimant is subject to a reduction in damages for contributory or comparative negligence according to the law of the jurisdiction.
If the driver with the suspended license caused the accident then he/she is responsible.
In auto insurance, 'uninsured insurance' refers to a type of coverage for accidents caused by a motorist without insurance or hit-and-run accidents in which the driver who caused the wreck cannot be identified. In other words, your insurance may cover the cost of damage to your car, medical expenses, and other expenses. http://www.superpages.com/supertips/what-is-uninsured-or-underinsured-motorist-coverage.html
