Do insurance companies cover an accident when it is your fault and you don’t get the other drivers information for the claim?
Yes, you would be covered by YOUR insurance company, given you have “Full-Coverage” coverage on your policy. Keep in mind, when filing a claim with your own insurance company, that this claim will go after you on a permanent insurance record for Five years, possibly more in depending on your state. So be very wary of claiming an accident that was someone else’s fault on your insurance. This may raise your premiums, or make you ineligible for insurance through A rated companies. If you have any more questions, direct them to my email. Sean
Will your insurance premiums increase if you make a claim after an accident that wasn’t your fault?
Insurance premiums .
This is a difficult question to response, because truly it depends on your carrier and, possibly, California laws that govern this sort of thing..
Most likely, your carrier will consider this a “collision” loss, since your truck struck the cinder block (as opposed to a “comprehensive” loss, which among other things would include the cinder block flying off another vehicle and landing on your truck). Collision losses can result in rate revision, but not necessarily..
If you make a claim for your damages, and your carrier understands that you were incapable to avoid the cinder block, they most likely won’t find you at-fault for this loss. So, how do you persuade them that you couldn’t avoid the cinder block? Mention the traffic around you; if you swerved, would you have caused a more serious accident involving another vehicle? Were you coming up over a rise, or were you traveling into the sun? Would attempting to avoid the cinder block have made you hit a concrete barrier, or possibly go off the road? Likewise, it would not be in your best interest to mention you were talking on a cell phone or lighting a cigarette when abruptly you witnessed the cinder block and hit it..
Once you make your claim, don’t rely on the claim adjuster to advise you on whether your rates will increase or not. The adjuster won’t be able to help you (and for good reason. Claim departments and underwriting are kept separate so that claims treating is not influenced by the “business side” of things. Also, the claim adjuster may tell you it won’t affect your rates, and then a while later you get a regular rate revision — accident or not — and you’re left wondering why your rates enlargened when you were told they wouldn’t)..
Instead, ask to speak with underwriting or have your agent ask for you. Some companies have thresholds for collision losses — anywhere from $500 to $1,500 — and don’t review for rate increases for losses under that amount. And, again, finding you not at-fault would be helpful..
Hope that helps.
How can you get cleared if you are not at fault in an accident but the other driver’s insurance company claims you are?
If you are not pleased with the insurance companies, then you will have to go to court, which can be very time consuming and expensive, especially if you liberate. Sometimes, you can just sue the other person for the amount that the 20% comes to in puny claims court. Are you sure that what the witnesses and the other driver told you are what they told the police and the insurance investigators? Often they are not the same. Insurance companies want to pay as little as possible, and if they even think they can save 20%, they will attempt it. sPolice Report. Letter of expreience from your insurance company.. have them resubmit there information to CGI… this is in Ontario btw
What can you do if the person at fault in an accident claims to have no insurance?

Can you claim bodily injury from your insurance for a car accident in which you were found at fault?
If you had medical coverage, you can. .
You cannot claim bodily injury against your own policy for yourself because you cannot be liable to yourself. Bodily injury coverage falls under the liability portion of your policy, for injury to others caused by you or the driver of your vehicle. You must carry PIP or MEDPAY for your own injuries. .
In the UK – the law is based on fault. Namely the driver at fault pays for the injury and vehicle harm to the harmless road user. Motor insurance is compulsory as this pays the liability of the driver at fault. So you cannot claim for bodily injury from your own insurance as you would be claiming against yourself – but if your motor policy was comprehensive you can claim from your own insurer for vehicle harm – subject to an excess. See the related link entitled “car driver injury claims” for a total explanation as to when a car driver can claim and when a car driver is considered liable.
You were in an accident which was not your fault but you did not have car insurance are you liable for this accident?

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.
How do you file a claim on your own to an insurance company after being involved in an accident that wasn’t your 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 figures 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!
Involved in a not-at-fault accident is it your fault or the holder’s for driving their uninsured car if you thought it was insured?
Ultimately, the driver is responsible for everything that that is caused by or contributed to while the driver is in the vehicle. Lights don’t work? Drivers fault. Not insured? Drivers fault. ResponseIf you drive a car that is not insured you can be ticketed for that. If you were not at fault in the accident then hopefully the other driver had insurance otherwise the harm to your friends car will have to be paid out of pocket. If that were the case then you could attempt to take the at fault driver to court. It is the responsibility of the holder of the vehicle to have the vehicle insured. ReactionThe law clearly states that it is the driver’s resposibility to make sure that the vehicle he/she is driving is decently insured and there are no acceptions, you will be ticketed.

How would an insurance claim affect your future rates in a hit and run accident that was not your fault?
According to my practice, it should not affect your insurance rates if you were not at fault. I was involved in a hit-and-run myself, and at the time I was too jumpy to jot down the correct license plate. I filed the report anyways however. Of course, due to the severity of the accident and whether or not you were injured, that would determine how much money your insurer need to shell out. However, as long as it’s not your fault, they have no reason to increase your rates. Good luck!

If I understand your question you are attempting to recover a deductible you incurred due to the fault of the other driver who was uninsured?

If you do not have similar coverage on your policy or in your state, you may simply have to file a claim in puny claims court to recover your deductible and good luck.

What is a person at fault with no car insurance in accident to do. in a car accident where i was at fault. i does not have insurance on my car. both cars are totaled. other woman has insurance help?
If you were at fault, then you are liable for all costs. Whether you have insurance or not does not negate your liability. In most states if you fail to pay for the claimants losses you will lose your driving priviledges for up to Ten years or until you pay the bill which ever comes very first. If the other person has insurance to pay for their losses then you will be required to re-imburse that Insurance Company for the damages you caused, You are still the at fault party and are liable for the damages. If you don’t pay the Insurance company they can also turn it over to a collection agency and it will undoubtedly affect your credit for the next Ten years. Basically to sum up. If you don’t pay the damages you will likely lose your credit rating as well as your drivers license for the next Ten years. Good Luck
