The people responsible for an automobile accident are those who are operating the involved vehicles at the time of the accident - unless the cause is mechanical failure or some other event outside the control or any of the operators. The person responsible for paying for the resulting damages may be the vehicle owners or the person who bought the vehicle insurance (usually, but not always, the same person). When operator negligence is involved, the operator may be responsible for paying the damages, even though the operator is not the insured person.

If you have insurance yourself you are insured to drive someones car. If you have an accident your insurance will cover it.




Absolutely. You are responsible for making sure the vehicle that you are driving is insured. It does not make any difference that you have other car insurance or even that the owner of the vehicle has other insurance. If there is not insurance on the vehicle you are driving then you are guilty.


If the car you are driving is insured then you are not driving without insurance.


Very simple, the insurance policy follows the vehicle not the driver. In this case, the vehicle insurer will be responsible for all damages.


Sure. If you have no valid license, you have no business driving a car at all. If you weren't driving illegally, you wouldn't have had the accident.


There are 3 possibilities: You ARE responsbile (or partly responsible) If (1) the un-insured driver is a minor and you are their parent or guardian (2) you are the owner or part-owner of the vehicle they are driving (3) the un-insured driver is on your insurance. Other than those factors, you would not be responsible for them.



The un-insured driver will have to turn to their health insurance company for coverage if he carried no auto insurance.



Whether the car is insured is not important, the point is who was at fault in causing the accident, it could be the person whose car is insured that is at fault.


Is this about an auto accident? Are you a young driver who didn't yet have a regular license and was driving with only a learner's permit? What do you mean "you aren't insured"? Drivers aren't insured; vehicles are. Was the car insured or not? If not, what were you doing driving it, and what makes you think there's even a remote chance that insurance will pay? (Unless you're talking about the other driver's liability insurance -- assuming there was another driver.) Or are you some sort of contractor who was working on some sort of job without a work or construction permit?


You are responsible for the damage you cause in an accident, regardless if you are insured or not. Having insurance transfers your responsibility to pay for the damage from you to your insurance company. If there are injuries to the other party, then the other party's insurance should pay for their injuries, but you are still responsible for the property damage you have caused the other person.


the insurance of the owners car would have to be liable. basically, your not gonna get sh*t cus driving with no license or insurance automatically makes you at fault--regardless of who really in all actuality was. DONT DRIVE WITH NO INSURANCE.


== == 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.



You can't sue the Insurance co, but you can sue their insured, the defendant. Since the insured has a valid policy, the Insurance co is obligated to represent him.


the person that is found responsible ( at fault ) for the accident


Some states are different, but in Michigan, the company who insured the car is responsible. They can then go after the uninsured driver Some states are different, but in Michigan the company who insured the car is responsible. They can then go after the driver .


Do you have any insurance. If driving, they ask for your proof of auto insurance.


I guess you were driving? The ticket (if you received one) may, also if a clue is run then that too may show up. Be sure and be truthful when filling out any application for insurance.


The insured and the owner of the vehicle are both legally responsible for the vehicle and they could both get sued for an accident.


You need to add him to your insurance or he must have his own. Your boyfriend is not automatically insured.


Ultimately, the driver is responsible for everything that that is caused by or contributed to while the driver is in the vehicle. Lights don't work? Drivers fault. Not insured? Drivers fault.AnswerIf you drive a car that is not insured you can be ticketed for that. If you were not at fault in the accident then hopefully the other driver had insurance otherwise the damage to your friends car will have to be paid out of pocket. If that were the case then you could attempt to take the at fault driver to court. It is the responsibility of the owner of the vehicle to have the vehicle insured. AnswerThe law clearly states that it is the driver's resposibility to make sure that the vehicle he/she is driving is properly insured and there are no acceptions, you will be ticketed.
