It depends on the person. The advantage to a higher deductible is lower premiums, however, the disadvantage is having to come up with a large sum of money if you’re involved in an at-fault accident. A good question to ask yourself is (for example, if your deductible is $1000), “If I’m involved in an accident that is my fault, can I come up with $1000 quickly?”
Can the at-fault driver’s carrier insist on only paying your deductible even tho’ you do not want to go through your insurance carrier for the balance?
Well, if they are going to pay the deductible directly to your insurance carrier and they except that, and pay for the claim themselves, it has nothing to do with you or your policy This question is a little open ended, but if you have reported the incident to your insurance and your going to accept the rest of the cost of repair out of your own pocket then their “deductible payment” would indeed just be viewed as a payment on your policy. Further lowering your next renewal cost or sometimes if you owe nothing the insurance my give this back to you. This would not be reflected necessarily as a claim issue.

What is a health insurance deductable?
It’s basically the amount of (in this case, medical) expenses that an insured person has to pay before the insurance kicks in and starts to pay. The trend is to modify the basic “all or nothing” deductible concept to include “co-pays”, where the insurance pays for certain types of services (such as an annual health examination) even before the deductible is met, with the insured paying a token amount (say, $Ten) for the service and the insurance picking up the rest. This is beneficial for both parties: the insured doesn’t have to come up with the utter cost of the exam, and the exam may detect a condition early, while it can be treated lightly and cheaply (therefore saving the insurance company money in the long run).

What are the deductibles of auto insurance?
Typically, auto insurance deductibles come into play with respect to collision and comprehensive coverage–both of which apply to physical harm to the insured vehicle. Some States also permit an insured to elect a deductible with respect to No-Fault coverage. This coverage is required by law in virtually all States. The rules concerning No-Fault deductibes are prescribed by law because the coverage is mandatory. Deductibes of all types can be likened to self-insurance. That is, the insurance company’s responsibility to pay does not fasten or begin until the deductible amount has been reached. For example, if a vehicle proprietor has a $500 collision deductible, and physical harm to the car is $1500, the insurer would pay $1000 and the insured would be responsible for $500. Stated otherwise, the insured “self-insures” for the very first $500. Physical harm deductibles come in various amounts, but are fairly standard inbetween companies. Deductibles can range inbetween $100-$500 or more. Generally, a higher deductible translates into a lower premium because the insurer’s responsibility for payment does not fasten until after the deductible amount has been reached.

What is dual deductible in car insurance?
I’m not sure what you are talking about. The only place where I can think that you may incur two deductibles is a situation where you back into your own vehicle. This could cause you to have two deductibles, one for each car. Often times, companies will waive one of the deductibles in this case. Damages cannot be paid under liability coverage because you can’t be liable to yourself. In a situation where you back into someone else’s vehicle, you liability would pay for their cars damages and your physical harm will pay for your harm to your car. If you hit another vehicle that you own, since you can’t be liable to yourself, liability doesn’t come into play at all, so harm on each car is paid under physical harm on each one as long as you have this coverage on both vehicles. In this case you normally would have to pay a deductible on each car but most companies waive the lowest deductible so that you only have one, and they also only charge the accident against one vehicle.
