What does stacked uninsured motorist coverage mean and will it get your car fixed by insurance?

"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.

Contact the other parties insurance company and hope that they have uninsured motorist coverage which will not help you in any way except that the person you hit will be paid for all damages you did and you will be able to work out a payment plan in order to repay the insurance company for these losses plus interest. Maybe this will keep you out of jail. Depends on your state laws in that matter. In most cases I have seen you will loose your drivers license until this is paid in full. Perhaps if you show the judge that you have done this they will issue you a permit to drive back and forth to work.

Why is having 21st century insurance important?

Having insurance in general is important; auto insurance especially. Not only is it illegal to drive without auto insurance, but if a person were to get into a car accident, he/she would have to exchange insurance information with the other person involved in the accident. A hefty fine can follow if he/she does not have insurance. The insurance will pay for the damages done so that he/she does not have to pay out of pocket. The same goes for homeowners' insurance. If damages are done to a person's house, then the insurance will pay for the damages. Overall, it doesn't matter if it is 21st Century Insurance or another insurance company. Insurance is very important to have.

Is an insured driver on your policy responsible for damages that they have not repaired on your vehicle?

== == 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.

What happens if you are in a car crash without liability insurance?

It depends on who and was injured in the accident, who received injuries and what property damage was received. Although it differs from state-to-state many states require (UM)Uninsured Motorist coverage as well as liability insurance.Under Illinois law, you are required to have car insurance Liability limits of at least 20/40/15. What does this mean? It means:$20,000 per person, for bodily injury you cause,$40,000 per accident, for bodily injury, and$15,000 per accident, for damage to another's property, usually their car.Uninsured Motorist Bodily Injury Limits of:$20,000 per person,$40,000 per accident.These are just the minimums and most drivers carry limits much higher then this. If the other driver is injured he is covered up to $20,000 per person and $40,000 per occurrence. In all actuality, the other driver's property and injury will be covered by his insurance.(The UM portion of the policy) However, this does not stop the insurance company from trying to recover the money it paid out from the liable party. This is called subrogation; the insurance company could sue you(if you were found liable) to recover damages to property and bodily injury that you caused.Although it is estimated that 18-24% of drivers are uninsured, it is illegal and dangerous. If you were in an accident and caused damages you may have to pay civil and criminal damages and wind up paying for the rest of your life or spend time in prison.If your car is registered, random checks are done to make sure people have auto insurance. If you don't carry proof of auto insurance and you are stopped by Illinois law enforcement, your license plates get suspended and you will receive a minimum $500 fine for driving uninsured, not to mention it then goes on your driving record and then you have to pay $100 reinstatement fee once you do get properly insured again. If you continue driving uninsured and get stopped, you get a minimum $1,000 fine for driving a vehicle while the license plates were suspended for a previous insurance violation, and a minimum 4 month suspension plus $100 reinstatement fee. Lastly, while the plates are suspended, no one may drive that vehicle.

Can an adjuster refuse a claim when their driver was issued a ticket at the scene of an accident?

The broad answer is "No", if only because a ticket is merely an accusation, not a determination of guilt or liability. But the issue gets more complicated depending upon the coverage involved. For example, collision coverage is a first-party coverage intended to pay for the physical damage to ones own car. If the claim is otherwise covered (meaning essentially that the insured has done everything required by the policy to assert the claim), the fact that the insured was given a ticket, and even if he convicted of the offense, will not ordinarily bar recovery. This is in contrast to another kind of first-party insurance, uninsured motorist coverage. It is designed to pay the same sort of damages to a person injured in a collision which the other driver or owner's liability insurance would have paid if that person had bodily injury liability coverage (such as damages for a permanent injury, pain and suffering, disfigurement, etc.). Stated otherwise, uninsured motorist coverage takes the place of the at-fault driver's/owner's bodily injury liability coverage when he/she does not have that coverage. Normally, the payment of uninsured motorist coverage benefits to an injured party will follow the same rules of negligence law as a claim directly against the at-fault driver, and thereby, principles of comparative or contributory negligence usually apply. Therefore, if the claimant is cited for a moving violation related to the collision and convicted of the violation, that finding may be interpreted as some degree of negligence, which may, in turn, have a bearing upon recovery from the insurer.
