The driver's insurance would then be considered "secondary," meaning if the owner of the auto didn't have insurance, then if the person driving the car had insurance, they would be liable.

Firstly,, If you are temporarily and unknowinlgly driving an uninsured non-owned vehicle and you do have liability insurance on your own vehicle, Then in Most cases that liability insurance from you own vehicle will follow you to the temporary vehicle as secondary coverage, so the accident may be covered under that policy. If No insurance exists to cover the vehicle then you can be subject to traffic fines for driving without financial responsibility, Impound of the driven vehicle, Possible arrest at the scene of the accident, Possible jail time, A Civil Suit may be filed against you by the claimant, Suspension of drivers license for up to 10 years or until such time as you have paid for the damages reulting from the accident. Once you have satisfied the associated losses from the accident you may also be required to maintain an SR22 Insurance filing to re-acquire your driving priveledges.


If you have liability insurance on one vehicle are you insured if you drive another vehicle?

Auto insurance typically covers the car, not the driver. So, if you have insurance on your vehicle, but you drive another vehicle that doesn't have insurance, you are not protected by your policy if you have an accident in that other vehicle. However, if you have insurance on your vehicle, and you lend it to a driver (from another household) who does not have his or her own insurance, they will be covered by your policy while they are driving your car.

Your car was totaled in a cardeer accident the insurance was in a friends name and a check was mailed by the insurance whos check is it mine or his?

Legally, its the friends because the insurance was in the friends name. Insurance checks are meant to be used on repairs to the vehicle or toward the purchase of a new vehicle. So you could try to force the friend to use the check toward the vehicle by taking them to court. Or you can start paying for your own insurance and not have to worry about the loyalty of your friends.


You have no car or insurance if you drive a friends car are you covered by their insurance?

Provided that there are no exclusions in your friends policy, anybody driver their car with permission will be covered if they cause an accident. You are of course subject to the coverages and limits on your friends policy. Ex, if your friend has just liability, the insurance company will only pay for damages you cause to the other party, not damage to the vehicle you were driving.

Does your insurance cover you to drive a car that has no insurance?

Your personal auto insurance will be secondary to the insurance of the vehicle that you are driving (assuming you do not own it and it is not a business vehicle). If you get involved in a car accident while you are operating a vehicle that is -not- yours, then the insurance of that vehicle has to pay first, and if that insurance is not enough (or is not there) then your insurance will kick in. Notice that if you get pulled over by police they will ask you to show proof of insurance on the vehicle (not your insurance.) The law requires all vehicles to be insured, not individuals.
