If the owner of the truck allowed an unlicensed driver to take the truck, then the owner is responsible - even if the driver lied about where he was going. If the unlicensed driver just took the truck, then a police report would need to be filed and charges pressed against that person - he can be sued for damages.
Both the Driver and the Owner are liable for the damages. The driver, whether licensed or not is the primarily liable party. The insured passenger owner is secondarily liable for damages by the unlicensed driver he permitted to operate his vehicle.
Both are held liable.
Yes he is do the crime pay the consequences
If this unlicensed driver was driving your car with your knowledge, you are screwed. But if you mean an unlicensed driver hit your car, if you have full coverage you should be able to collect on your insurance. The insurance will make the check to the leinholder and they will give you any excess or expect you to make up any shortage to pay off the loan. In some cases, if you did give permission for the uninsured driver, your insurance company will pay for the loss but make you sign an exclusion stating that the driver will not be covered in the future for any reason. You would be liable for full cost if it happens again. You can also expect a spike in your rates if they reside with you.
The at fault driver always has the primary liability for the damages they cause in an accident. (The guy who rams the other guy).
It depends on the conditions of your policy. If there is a clear stipulation that it will not cover any unlicensed drivers, or any drivers not specifically listed for that matter then no they won't pay. If such a condition is not specified and coverage is unconditional (in that respect) then they probably will. Assuming the person survived, and was not taken to jail it is doubtful they would be civily liable for the damages to another victims car (if applicable) hence the policy owner who's name is on the title is ultimately liable.
Generally, the owner of the insured car is held liable for any damages or losses involved after an accident. So if you want to file a claim for compensation after a crash, it is better to file it with the owner of the insured car or his insurance company. The adult unlicensed driver however, can be held liable criminally if there was death or injury involved.
unless the person stole it then the owner is responsible. the uninsured person might be covered under the owners policy as extra driver though.
This will depend on the type of insurance coverage. The insurance company can decide to go to court and argue that since the driver was uninsured, then they should not be liable for damages.
Bad things, will mostly likely get a few citation from police. If he is found to be at fault he could be liable for the damage.
No they won't. A learners permit is not a valid license. They shouldn't be driving without a licensed driver. The owner of the car can be held liable. They can be sued for allowing an unlicensed driver, drive their vehicle.
If the driver was uninsured or only had liability insurance, they would be liable to still pay the finance company back or face a lawsuit.
The fault lies with the vehicle that cause the accident. When someone borrows a car, the car owner can be liable because the allowed someone to drive the vehicle. Often this type of accident has to be sorted out in court.
No, you are not covered and neither is the unscheduled, unlicensed driver. Unfortunately though, since your insurer is also financially liable for certain of your negligent acts, such as, allowing an unscheduled and unlicensed driver to operate your insured vehicle. They may have to pay for the damages resulting from your negligent acts. This should not be confused with the fanciful idea that the unlisted and unlicensed driver was ever covered by your policy. If they have to pay the claim, your Insurer may justifiably decide to cancel your policy due to negligence.
a fast car that you race with
Laws vary from state to state. However, I don't know of anywhere that it is illegal, but it is very irresponsible. If a passenger is in the car when the driver is pulled over for driving without a licence, the passenger may be ticketed or jailed, depending on the state, and the passenger would more than likely get a ride home and nothing more. If you know that the driver of a vehicle is not licensed by the state, you should not ride with that driver. If you are in a car accident, the driver cannot be insured if they are unlicensed, and you could be liable for your hospitalization, ambulance and physician's fees.
The Driver "and" the Vehicle Owner are both jointly and severally liable for all damages. She should contact her Insurance Agent for advice as to whether or not the Auto Insurance Policy will provide coverage for the unlicensed driver
The driver and the owner is liable.
the driver and the owner is liable for anything
The unlicensed driver is responsible for all damages. If they are a minor the parents may be forced to take responsibility. Sadly, the owner of the vehicle MUST make any insurance claims they are eligible to make. The owner can ask the unlicensed driver to pay any excess on the insurance and even take them to court if they refuse to pay it. The driver of the vehicle is responsible to pay any amounts not covered by the vehicles owners insurance, including damages to the car. If the insurance premium goes up or you loose your no claim bonus then I'm sorry but the driver is not liable for that. If the unlicensed driver drove the vehicle without permission from the vehicle owner then the vehicle owner must report that the car was stolen at the time of the accident, then provide the insurance company with the police report number (you can tell the police you don't want to press charges). Under these circumstances even if the insurance company pays out damages for the vehicle they may chase the unlicensed driver to pay them back.
Both the uninsured driver and the friend are in trouble. My GUSS IS the uninsured friend will be liable to any damages he has caused The uninsured friend will be responsible for the damages to their car If insurance is required in your state, the uninsured friend and/or driver could face criminal charges
No. The employer is responsible.
The additional driver
The owner of the vehicle is usually held liable.
The insurance company is not liable for paying damages. The minor was knowingly breaking the law by driving w/o a license. The parent of the child will be held liable for damages. As will the person/owner of the vehicle if they knew the minor was not a legally licensed driver. If you let an un liscensed/uninsured minor driver your vehicle, your asking for it. If you werent the parent of the minor, they could sue you as well for neglect.
