Unless you have an uninsured motorist coverage attached to your PLPD policy, you are otherwise screwed. Your only other option beyond this is to sue the driver if they got caught. Well we all know lawsuits can only be so effective but they can take time and money to complete. Even if you win you aren't guaranteed any money, if the other party ever pays at all. Moving on, PLPD only covers any At Fault accidents YOU may have. When I had my first car I had PLPD BUT I had an uninsured motorist coverage on my policy. It turned out that was the right thing to do because I was involved in a hit and run myself, and since the other party was deemed as having no insurance, my car was paid for.

If you were in a car accident and the other person was at fault should her insurance pay for your rental car medical bills and all of your repairs?

yes, assuming the are all accident related and she is 100% negligent, and therfore liable/responsible for your damages.......if a specific problem with some of this give more details and i can be of more assistance.....It also depends on whether your state is a "no fault" state or not. In a "no fault" state, the parties involved in an auto accident are automatically reimbursed by their own insurance company. However, it is still possible for the victim of an auto accident to receive additional compensation for certain damages (i.e. medical expenses, pain and suffering, economic losses, etc.). If the accident victim's auto insurance policy does not cover the amount of damages they've sustained, they may want to consider legal action against the at fault driver. However, this all depends on the state the accident victim lives in and the amount/type of damages sustained.

If you were involved in a multi car accident and you were not at fault does the party at fault have to pay for your damages?

I was in a 3 car accident. An uninsured motorist hit the car in front of me, the second vehicle (who has insurance) then hit my car. Doesn't the car who hit me become responsible for my damages?AnswerYes, the at fault party is responsible for your damages. AnswerKeep in mind, in multi vehicle accidents, usually, the responsible party's insurance co. prorates the amounts paid (up to the policy's limit) among the claimants, meaning that at the end you may still be owed money, which the only way to collect is if you sue the person at fault for the accident.
