Are auto warranty companies exempt from carrying general liability insurance coverage?
GL requirement for businesses .
No – they are not exempt – there truly is no requirement for General Liability insurance such as there is in some states for auto insurance..
To my skill there are no general laws that require any company to carry General Liability insurance. There may be local or state laws that require proof of insurance to access privileges, such as being licensed to conduct business in a town or state. Many entities require proof of coverage such as customers, lienholders, mortgagees, licensing entities (city, state, business, professional licenses), and many more. I do not believe there is a blanket “law” or requirement that applies to all business entities. In practical fact, it is the stakeholders in and around any business that “require” insurance to make the risk of doing business with the entity one that is somewhat managed..
Auto warranty companies may be only selling a promise to provide a service through another entity – the dealer or repair shop – and therefor attempt to advise an unhappy customer that they don’t need insurance, i.e. go see the entity that was to provide the maintenance/repair. That does not mean the warranty company does not have insurance; most very likely they carry both General Liability and Professional Liability. It is most likely they carry a VERY high deductible andREINSUREthe rest and are most likely part of aRisk Retention Groupwhich furtherreinsuresthe exposure.

How do insurance companies determine who is at fault for auto accident?
I turned the corner on a residential street with no dual yellow and there was a suv/van on the left with room to go past on the right. I didn’t notice whether a blinker was on, but it was moving leisurely. I continued straight and the van took a unexpected turn into a driveway on the right. I slammed on the brakes but we collided, my subaru wagon’s left side behind the headlight met his bumper, as the van was higher. He had no harm. My car was leaned in at the corner. .
He said as he had no harm there was no need for a police report, and I would be cited for passing on the right. I wonder whether he should have looked before turning. I eyed a blinking front right blinker when he hit me, but did not notice whether his back blinker worked..
I went home with him not wanting to be involved in any way. Could I have been hit in a parking lot in the same way? Is that enough to tell the insurance co.?, Or could he possible have some fault for turning into me and not looking. I wish I knew if his rear blinker worked, but I didn’t think of this until I got home.

This means that if an event occurs that is your fault and that is covered by the policy, the insurer may be required to pay a maximum of $X to each person who is injured or harmed. Further, it means that if numerous people were injured or harmed by the same occurrence, the insurer is liable for payment of up to the “per occurrence” thresholds, but no more.
