going to be paying the state lots of me and the proprietor of the other car
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 will happen if you do not have your drivers license and insurance with you when involved in a minor accident?
You will get a ticket for these violations but if you bring them with you to court and they display that you were licensed and insured on the date of the accident, these charges will be dismissed..
What happens if someone who is not on your insurance has an accident with your car?
Some aspects of the response depend upon the state in which you live and the law to which it adheres. For example, in many states, the proprietor of the vehicle and the driver are jointly liable for the damages to the third party if the driver was using the car with the skill and consent of the holder. Generally, permission is presumed to exist in the absence of the car having been stolen or there being an express, provable, refusal to permit its use. In general, if the car was insured for liability coverage and the driver was not listed on the policy as a permissible user, the insurer will likely disclaim coverage. This is because it was not paid a premium to assume the risk of his/her use of the car. If the holder did have liability insurance on the car, and if the driver had liability insurance on a different car that he/she wielded and normally drove, the law of the state in which the collision occurred would likely address who’s insurance is “primary” and who’s is “excess”; this essentially means which insurance pays very first before the other may be called upon. Often, the driver’s liability insurance is primary because he/she is the actively negligent party, while the proprietor bears only a vicarious liability. Keep in mind that “what happens” also depends on fault. That is, the occurrence of a collision does not necessarily mean that anyone pays anything to anyone. In order to be entitled to damages, one party has to be found negligent (careless). Even the issuance of a traffic ticket for the collision is not determinative of the issue. A ticket is essentially the police officer’s accusation that a traffic law was violated; it still has to proven. An adjudication of guilt on the ticket may have a bearing on a later finding of civil liability for damages. If the matter proceeds to suit and a judgment is entered against the possessor/driver, and the judgment remains unpaid for a statutory period of time (often 30 days), the person(s) against whom the judgment was/were entered are subject to having their licenses/registrations suspended based upon the state’s Financial Responsibility Law.
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 Three yrs.. its not good.
You very likely will be arrested and if you are incapable to pay the costs in utter 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 watching 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..
If a friend is driving your Car with no Insurance or License and get in an accident what the worst that can happen?
Your vehicle was or was not insured? If neither the vehicle nor driver have any insurance, both the proprietor of the uninsured vehicle and driver will be held accountable for the damages caused/owed. Fines, loss of license and plates, etc. with more detailed information I could be of more assistance.
If you have utter coverage insurance and a person who is not licensed gets into an accident in your vehicle what happens to your insurance?
I’m a Broker – very first of all, as tacky and incovenient as this sounds, IF YOU DON’T KNOW IF A PERSON ABOUT TO DRIVE YOUR CAR IS LICENSED OR NOT, ASK TO SEE THEIR PERMIT! IN THE CASE OF AN ACCIDENT, YOU ARE PERSONALLY HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL DAMAGES. The law says that we must assess the likelihood of such events and protect ourselves in any way. eg. if your friend is drinking you don’t let them drive…
If your daughter who lives with you is licensed and uses your insured car and gets into an accident will she be insured in PhiladelphiaPa?
Yes if she is not specifically excluded from the policy (you would have had to finish a form akin to the ‘named driver exclusion’). The insurance goes after the vehicle and anyone driving it with your permission, as long as they are not excluded, is covered.
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 very 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 figures are likely to be responsible for paying compensation for harm and private injury as a result of the accident: the driver of the vehicle, the possessor 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 you are in a car accident and you rear end someone who has no license or car insurance and does not have permission to be driving his mother’s car?
You could be charged with “undue care and attention” and obviously you weren’t Two car lengths behind this other car (read your driving manual.) You rear-ended the other car, so you are responsible. The youthfull driver of the other car will obviously face charges for driving without a license at the very least, and if this goes to court his mother’s insurance may have to pay for your damages on your car. This is one for the courts.
What happens if a person with a suspended license is driving another persons car who is licensed but doesn’t have insurance and there was an accident that was the fault of the other driver?

If someone else drives your car with a valid license but no insurance of their own what happens if that driver has an accident who is responsible?
Technically, You are responsible for the car because the car insurance is in your name and not theirs.

It can go either way you or them depending on evidence of the accident.

If you were the at fault party, since you don’t have insurance to cover the accident, then you need to pay out of your own pocket all expenses incurred by the other driver you hit, including property harm and vehicle repair bills and any medical expenses if you also injured someone in the other car. Failure to pay for the damages you caused will usually result in a mandatory drivers license suspension for Ten years or until such time as you pay for the damages you caused.
What happens no drivers license but car is insured in someone else’s name and you are involved in car accident?
Depends if the car is registered to your or the other person. If its your car then you will be done for driving with no insurance or driving whilst banned or driving with no license or a combination of the three..
However if its not your car and you borrowed it you will again be charged with driving with no license and insurance, (If no license then you dont have insurance, the driver must be insured not the car) but whoever you got the car from could also be charged with knowingly permitting a vehicle to be driven illegally (illegally because you – the driver had no insurance and license), if you dont want to get the other person in trouble – or they may say you took it if they dont want the trouble – then you will very likely be charged with TWOC (taking without consent) as well as no driving with no license and insurance..
The other persons insurance may pay out if you are found to have taken the car without consent as most cars are insured for theft. However the possessor will have to prove this and if there is reason for doubt they wont pay out – unless the police say you did it, but then you will be charged. If its your car and you just dont have insurance yet but (for example) your mate has insured it for him to use while you cant drive it then im afraid it looks like you may have a strenuous bill for the other cars you bruised and also court costs and legal fees if you get arrested…not to mention the mighty fine you’ll get!

The driver does not have decent insurance at this point. since theinsurance did not cover provisional licenses, the insuranceprovider mask likely does not have to pay out on any claim.

You will learn that insurance is not something that you can let lapse.
What happens if i have an accident with my rental car with no insurance?
You will typically be held liable – not a good idea. With no insurance, I very recommend purchasing the Liability insurance supplement at a nude minimum from the company so if something happened you will not incur such a financial hardship. Not worth the risk in today’s sue blessed society. I also recommend the LDW or CDW coverage to avoid hassles such as upfront payments, inadequate coverage from credit cards (they are almost always secondary and never in total) and preventing the company suing you for damages.
If your bf got into an accident with your car without an active drivers license but with an active car insurance what will happen?
I am not positive but I wouldguessthat (telling your BF is at fault) 1) Your insurance will not cover your car since it was driven by someone without a liceance Two) Your BF’s insurance is not valid since he does not have a drivers liceance (even however it is active) Trio) You will be personally responsible for the damages to your car and your BF will be responseable to any damages he has cause during the accident.

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 guiltless 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 fastened, 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.
What happens when you let someone with no licenses drive your car and they get in an accident?

In my many years as an agent, I have never seen a company that will pay your claim if you never had insurance. It is not in a companies best interest to pay a lot of money out when they weren’t insuring a vehicle at the time. You will most likely not lose your license for just that infraction.
If you get in a car accident with no insurance do you lose your license?
Not necessarily, as long as you pay for the damages to the other vehicle and fines related to the accident. However, if you don’t pay , the other driver has the right to take you to court and obtain a Judgment against you and enforce it. Such Judgment is under the guidelines of Non Payment of Judgment and then the DMV will suspend your license nationwide and will not reinstate it until all damages are paid in total.

What happens if car insurance does not cover utter amount of accident?
(In the UK) I’m guessing you mean on your own vehicle? i.e. your car repair bill is for Â£5000, but your vehicle is only worth Â£3000 (amounts for illustration only)? In that situation, the Insurer would ‘write off’ the vehicle – essentially proclaiming it as unworthy of repair. They would then pay out to you the Â£3000, assuming that Â£3k istheirvaluation of the car and take ownership of it themselves for scrapping. This is regardless of what you told them it was worth when you took out the insurance. Conversely, if you told them it was worth Â£2500, and the car is worth Â£3000, they will only pay up to a maximum of Â£2500 – sneaky so & so’s!!! If you feel that the harm is only cosmetic, or you are a mechanic yourself, and feel that the car can be repaired cheaply, then you can always buy the car back off them – usually for a duo of hundred quid. If however you meant other people’s vehicles, then I believe it is the same as public liability insurance, and covers up to Â£1 million. Should be enough for most vehicles… Outside of the UK I’m afraid I don’t have a clue! ResponseIn the US, if the vehicle were itself bruised, once the deductible is paid by the insured, the insurer pays the reasonable cost of repair. Recently, it has become common for insurers to have preferred repair facilities that work with the insurer on cost of repairs. This is similar to managed care in the health insurance arena. In most states, it is also the law that if damages exceed a stated percentage of the actual cash value of the car, the insured must proclaim it a total loss. The insurer then pays the insured the actual cash value, less the policy’s collision or comprehensive deductible. The insured if often given a choice to either keep the salvage and, perhaps, pay to rebuild the vehicle, or to sign title over to the insurer. If the insurer keeps the salvage, the salvage value is deducted from the amount paid to the insured. In cases where the insured is at fault for a collision and a claim is made by a third party for property or bodily injury harm, most states require the insurer to lodge the claim within the insured’s policy thresholds if it possible to do so. If it unwilling to pay the value of the claim when it knew or should have known that the claim was in excess of policy boundaries, and the claimant will lodge for policy boundaries, the insurer will have exposed the insurer to an “excess verdict”. That is, in most states, considered “bad faith”. In that situation, the insured can sue the insured for extra damages. Alternatively, the insured can assign that claim to the claimant who may sue the insurer for the difference inbetween policy thresholds and the amount of the claim. Note that state law governing bad faith may differ depending the jurisdiction, and that this is intended only as a general discussion.

What happens if you get into an accident but only have a license but no insurance but the other person has a license and insurance?
Two problems… Very first, if the accident was in any way your fault, then you are on the hook for that percentage of the cost of the accident. Since most accidents are never 100% one person’s fault, this could cost you thousands or more. Even however the other driver most most likely has un-insured/under-insured coverage, you can be assured that he/she will subrogate the claim, and their insurance company will come after you for payment. 2nd, many states require insurance as a requirement for driving a car. Failure to have insurance is a chargeable offense, and you could be fined and/or jailed because of this. At minimum, you can expect that your license will be suspended or revoked.
Do you lose your license if your car is in an accident with no insurance and you weren’t there?
Yes, If you permitted your car to be driven by another while it was uninsured you can lose your drivers license and the other party can “Sue” both the Driver and You the possessor jointly or separately for total compensation for any and all damages. As the holder of the vehicle it is your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is covered regardless of who is driving it. You, the “Possessor” are identically “Liable” under the law with the driver you permitted to operate the vehicle. If the vehicle was stolen you can file a police theft report and you would not be held liable for the accident.

Will insurance cover an accident by an unlicensed driving a licensed insured drivers car?
It just depends on the type of insurance policy that was in force on the car and whether the unlicensed driver is considered an insured under the terms of the Vehicle owners Auto Insurance Policy. If the Vehicle Possessor has a “Standard Form Policy” then in most cases where there is no disturbance of law, fraud, or deception, a permissive use driver would be covered under the owners policy. If the Vehicle Possessor has a “Named Driver Policy”, Often referred to as a “Limited Lines Policy” available as a more economic option in some states. Then no drivers other than those listed on the policy are covered. It’s best just to contact your agent or your insurer to determine the extent of coverage provided under your auto insurance policy. If on a standard form policy and the accident is covered, you may be surcharged an extra premium or suffer policy cancellation for the negligent activity of permitting an unlicensed driver to operate the vehicleReactionGenerally, if they cover the loss, it would be the insured’s driver’s car insurance. This question truly is to general and truly requires specific policy review.

What happens if you’re involved in a auto accident and have no car insurance and no license?
Basically, you’re out of luck. It’s a crime to drive without a license. And it’s almost certainly going to be treated as your fault, meaning nobody’s going to pay to repair your car and you’re going to have to pay to repair the other car. (In practice, the other dude’s insurance will very likely pay for his car … and then they’ll go after you to attempt to reclaim the losses. And they haveverygood attorneys.) You will end up paying the judgement for years to come. Very likely is a lot cheaper to buy the insurance and get the license to begin with, or take the bus. Driving is not a right; it is a responsibility, but now you know that. It is also likely that you will be arrested and the car will be impounded. That will result in a criminal record and impound fees that will be your responsibility. Ifyou ever get it together to get a valid license and a car you will find yourself in a high risk category and your insurance will be very expensive.
How many years is your licensed suspended if you do not have insurance on your car and you get in an accident?
This will depend on your State and what their regulations are regarding this matter. In Georgia, your license will remain suspended until you finish reimbursing the party you hit and their insurance company who may have paid the claim under their uninsured motorists coverage. They will permit you to make payments over time to get it paid off. I recall a 15 year old dame that drove her Mothers vehicle. Because, she wasn’t a licensed driver, the insurance company denied coverage and did not pay the claim. She could not get her very first license until the $Five,000 harm she caused was paid back to the other parties insurance company. The Mom had insurance but did not notify the company of the drivers and let an unlicensed driver drive the car and she fresh she had no license as it was her daughter.
