As far as I know, if you don’t have insurance, you ARE at fault.
That’s how it is everywhere I’ve heard of, but I don’t know about Michigan.
What happens if you have no auto insurance and no drivers license and you where in car accident but it was not your fault?
Sorry to say, Eva, but an uninsured car is not supposed to be on the public streets and a person with no license is not supposed to be driving a car. Since you contributed to the accident by violating these laws, you are at least partially at fault. The other driver’s insurance company is going to deny any claim you submit..
What happens to your drivers license when you are at fault in an auto accident and you do not have car insurance?
dl suspension for one year and your going to need an sr22 for Trio yrs.. its not good.
You very likely will be arrested and if you are incapable to pay the costs in total to the victim(s) you may be looking at some deep jail time, your driver license can actually be suspended for anywhere from 1- to TEN years depending on what state you live in but if the damages aren’t paid, leave behind about ever observing your picture on a license again..
By the way, the 3-7 period a SR-22 is required starts when you are released from jail and your license is reinstated, not the day of the accident..
You were in an accident which was not your fault but you did not have car insurance are you liable for this accident?
If it wasnt your fault, then the person who was at fault is liable. I would suggest working something out inbetween the two of you, since you could have your liscense suspended if caught without insurance. II: You wish it was that effortless! It is illegal to operate a vehicle without insurance coverage. The minute the other driver’s insurance co. finds out that you were not insured, the claim becomes 50/50 and very hard to fight. You pay for yours and they pay for thiers. That’s all.
If you don’t report an at fault accident with a rental car to your insurance and a month later receive a bill 800 dollars what should you do?
I’m claims manager for a rental car co. The options are to pay it yourself or still report it to your insurance co. While insurers can deny coverage and not pay claims for late reporting, it’s very unlikely. They can’t do so just because of a late report, but also have to demonstrate they were prejudiced by the late report (they didnt get a chance to inspect the harm before repairs, etc.)In the event they do deny, complain to a claims manager at your co, if that doesnt work go to your state Insurance Dept or Commissioner and file a complaint. If you didnt report this because you didnt want your premiums to go up,your company will find out about it anyway if a police report was made. If you determine to pay yourself, attempt to negotiate it to a lower amount. Especially argue that you shouldn’t have to pay charges usually labelled something like “Administrative Fees” or “Loss of Use”. They’ll almost always waive these. Dont expect the rental co to just go away. Most are very aggressive in collecting damages, to the point of filing a lawsuit against you.
What will happen if you have a car accident and you are uninsured and at fault?

What happens to a person at fault for a car accident with no insurance if it is not their car?
It’s possible that the car owners insurance will cover the damages, but just as likely that it won’t. If it doesn’t, then the driver of the car will be fully responsible for any and all damages and will most likely end up being sued in court to recover the monies owed. It’s for this reason that all states require drivers to have uninsured motorist coverage on their insurance. .
In the UK three bods are likely to be responsible for paying compensation for harm and individual injury as a result of the accident: the driver of the vehicle, the holder of the vehicle’s insurer (if that person had skill that the other was driving his vehicle) and the Motor Insurer’s Bureau. The driver of the vehicle will also be prosecuted in criminal law for driving without valid motor vehicle insurance. For a description of motor vehicle insurance and the MIB – please see the related link.
What happens if a car accident was not your fault but you were driving a friend’s car that was insured by liability insurance?
I believe if, before the accident, you are listed as a driver on the insurance policy, then you are permitted to drive the vehicle too. If so, then the car at fault is at fault. If you are not listed as a driver, then your friend could be at fault if he gave you permission to drive the car. If he did not give you permission to drive the car, then you could be held liable. Liability covers only the other car, unless you have uninsured motorist insurance included, then your car is also covered if the at fault driver has no insurance, if you are listed as a driver. If the car at fault has no insurance what-so-ever, then they could be at fault because they should not even be on the road if your state requires minimal liability insurance. You can call any insurance company to find out, and remain anonymous if you would like, and if they will tell you. Or you can call a lawyer who gives free consults to find out. I would suggest that you very first look up your state laws (regarding automotive insurance requirements for your state, if it has any). Then go from there. State laws may vary!
What happens if you are in an accident that was not your fault but you do not have insurance?
Since you are not suppose to even be on the road without insurance, you will get a fat ticket for this and most likely have your license suspended. Also, you will have a VERY hard time getting insurance. If you are fortunate enough to get insurance, your premiums will be almost unlikely to afford. The other driver’s insurance will pay for her own damages and maybe yours, but that will be a battle all by itself.
If you have no fault auto insurance will your insurance rates increase if you happen to be in an accident in which you were not at fault?
Generally speaking, no..
However, in any moving incident/disturbance, your driving record is checked. If it turns out that you have a few past speeding tickets, and maybe another previous accident or two where you were not at fault, the insurance company may choose to tag you as a high-risk driver and increase your premium..
On the other palm, if you are a driver with a spotless record, your rates will very likely not go up in the event of an accident where you are not at fault.
If you are in an accident and it is your fault does your insurance pay for both cars?
No lovey not if your the one at fault… Insurance only covers the other person if your at fault sorry honey……
It depends on what insurance coverage you have. The liability coverage that all states require you to carry on any registered vehicle will cover the other person’s harm. If you also purchased collision insurance, that will pay for your vehicle (less the deductable).
What happens if you have no insurance and are at fault in an accident?
Obviously, you can get a ticket. You also can be sued by the victim and the victim’s insurance company for damages. They will look at your assets and see what can be liquidated to pay off the judgment. This could bankrupt you, depending on your state’s rules for what assets you can protect from liquidation. The victim will have an attorney who will get paid at least a third of what is collected and has a strong motivation to get every last penny they can from you. Going without liability insurance is a very, very, very bad idea, not to mention it is against the law in 49 states.
What happens to a person at fault for a car accident with no insurance?

What will happen if you disregard their insurance group from an accident where you were at fault but had no insurance?
Most likely you they will sue you and you will lose by default due to no response from you. Then after they win a judgment against you they will likely file a lien against any property or assests you have so they can begin the seizure process. The court will also likely suspend your drivers license for Ten years or until you pay for the harm, whichever comes very first.
If you are in an accident and it is your fault but you have no car insurance and can’t pay for the damages what will happen?
Unluckily, you can be sued for the other person’s damages. If the person you hit isn’t injured and has only a property harm claim, his or her most likely recourse is puny claims court where claims are capped at around $7,500 (check your state’s cap online). In this example he or she might seek reimbursement of the deductible, along with filing fees and possibly extra costs such as rental car reimbursement or even wages missed from work..
If the person was injured and makes a recovery under his or her uninsured motorist policy, the insurance company that paid damages can sueyoufor the amount it paid and possibly its attorney fees & costs. The most likely outcome in that event (or even in the property harm only script) the other person/insurance company would get a judgment against you. That’s a pretty serious situation not only with respect to your credit rating, but your wages could also be garnished.
What happens if the driver who is not at fault for an accident does not have insurance?
He will be left with a wrecked car! He will also have to pay for damages to any other vehicle(s) involved in the accident. However it can vary from country to country, but in the UK, not having Car Insurace is illegal, so the uninsured driver would be a bit screwed! I think in the UK you can even end up serving a short-term jail sentence for repeatedly dodging insuring your car. I’m not 100% however. Even if the the insured driver is at fault – the uninsured driver will be left paying for the mess himself – and will have to fix the car with his own money. But if you live in the US – then this could be entirely different.
What happens if you have no car insurance and you have an accident?
If the collision was your fault, even if you had no insurance, you are still theoretically liable for the virginal party’s damages. He/she may make a decision that even in the absent of insurance, they will make a claim against you, You can either resolve the claim voluntarily, or wait to see if they will file a lawsuit against you. If a lawsuit is filed, you must defend it, yourself or with the help of a lawyer that you hire. If you fail to, a judgment will be entered by default. Depending upon the state in which you live and where the judgment is entered, the judgment is enforceable for many years and becomes a lien on property that you own or acquire during the life of the judgment. Under certain circumstances, bank accounts can be linked, salary or wages garnished, or other forcible collection deeds taken. If you were issued a ticket and convicted, and if damages exceed a stated amount, the fact that you did not have insurance could lead to a license and registration suspension under your state’s Financial Responsibility Law. If that happens, both are suspended for a period of time (often one or more years), or until such time as you make payment arrangements with the other party. You are generally also required by the state to maintain high-risk auto liability insurance for a number of years. A similar process is triggered if a judgment is entered against you (that is, a license suspension). Another aspect of a collision without insurance is that you will be financially responsible for the repair of your own vehicle. If you had had collision coverage, the insurer would have borne that expense subject to the policy deductible.
