Does having a pacemaker make you uninsurable for medical insurance?
Yes, in the state of Tennessee it does. I have been denied by all independent agencies, and by TennCare, too. They all say I am uninsurable even however I have lifetime coverage on any and all heart problems through a workers compensation settlement. Many people who are denied insurance use other alternatives. If your employer has a group plan, that is your best bet. The advantage of a group plan is that pretty much everyone is accepted, regardless of health. If you can’t get coverage that way, check with your state. Depending on where you live, you may be able to get coverage however a state program. In Colorado, I am under the state’s “CoverColorado” program and in Wisconsin I was covered under “HIRSP”. (I’ve had a pacemaker since I was 20.) Check out your state’s department of health for available programs. It seems that not all states have such programs in place, however I know a few (like Tennessee) are in the process of implemeting such a program.
What does an insured driver do when hit by an uninsured driver?
Uninsured drivers .
When I was hit by an uninsured motorist and it was their fault, my insurance company paid to fix my car. It’s my understanding that they then sued the uninsured motorist for reimbursement. I was told that I could also file a petite claims suit against the uninsured motorist for the deductible amount that I had to pay under my policy. So you have a choice; submit a claim to your company and then file a suit against the motorist to recoup your deductible, or don’t file a claim with your company at all and go after the uninsured motorist in court for the accomplish amount. But chances are, if they can’t afford insurance, then they won’t be able to pay you either! If you only have liability coverage on your car, then taking them to court is obviously your only option. Keep in mind, most insurance companies require the uninsured driver to sign a statement that they have no insurance. If they don’t sign, your insurance company will likely decline your claim and you will have to take the uninsured driver to court. Most insurance companies also suggest an option to pay a little extra and you don’t have to worry about that, your covered no matter what. So to be safe just add it to your policy. .
In the UK a figure known as the Motor Insurer Bureau or MIB will meet the liability of an uninsured driver. You must make the claim against the uninsured sea and you should notify the MIB. See the related link entitled “accident car insurance” for more details on how the MIB pays compensation.
If an insured driver wrecks an uninsured vehicle who pays?
I was recently in an accident & had no insurance. The person that rear-ended me was 100% at fault, which he admitted at the scene, and his insurance company paid for my car (which was totalled) and my rental. At the end of the day, he was at fault. Her company did not insure your vehicle and owes you nothing. Never, never, never let anyone drive your vehicle if you don’t have insurance on it (inlcuding yourself!) Above reaction is very likely wrong. If the other vehicle has liability insurance, which is required in most states, and is determined to be at fault, that person’s insurance will cover the repairs or replacement of your vehicle.

What does uninsured motorist and under insured motorist insurance cover?
Uninsured motorist coverage pays damages for bodily injuries when the at-fault driver or possessor of a vehicle has no bodily injury liability coverage. It pays an amount up to the amount purchased by the insured, and is generally not a required coverage. In those states that utilize a comparative negligence rule of determining fault for a collision, the amount that the inured party can recover is diminished by the amount of liability attributable to him/her. In that respect, it operates similarly to the evaluation of the injury and damages if the at-fault party did have bodily injury liability coverage. Underinsured motorist coverage serves essentially the same purpose. However, it is triggered when the at-fault party’s bodily injury liability coverage is less than the injured party’s uninsured motorist coverage. Further, in order to be triggered, the “value” of the injury must exceed the liability coverage of the at-fault party.
Does liability insurance cover you from an uninsured motorist?
No. Liability insurance protects you from claims by third parties if an occurrence is alleged to be your fault and the third party claims compensable damages. It indemnifies you (pays damages on your behalf), and provides a defense (hires and pays an attorney at its own expense-if it wishes to contest liability or damages). A liability insurance policy is triggered only if the allegations made against you arise from a type of risk contemplated by the policy–for example, an auto liability policy will not apply to a trip-and-fall claim made in a store that you operate. Uninsured motorist coverage is a different coverage. It pays to you the same kind of damages, based upon an assessment of relative fault and seriousness of damages, that the at-fault party’s liability insurance would have paid if that person had liability insurance. It generally applies to only bodily injury damages-not property harm. A useful paradigm by which to think about it is that liability coverage is “third-party” coverage (pays to injured third parties based upon your fault), whereas uninsured motorist coverage is “very first party” coverage which you maintain as a source of compensation for yourself if the at-fault has no bodily injury liability coverage.

Does homeowners insurance cover an uninsured person?
My agent in MD (at the time-10 yrs ago) advised me that my homeowners insurance would not cover workers who by law were supposed to be covered by worker’s compensation. I had a very skilled, reliable friend who would have installed a large roof for me for half the price of a fully licensed contractor who gave me proof of being in compliance with all licensing and insurance requirements. To the best of my skill in the three states in which I have lived, maintaining a valid contractor license does not include a requirement to maintain valid worker’s compensation insurance. The chances of having a serious problem in these issues is relatively petite but the risk of paying the expenses of someone earnestly injured (maybe for the rest of the injured party’s life) is phat. On another question site, a person said that they had a special insurance policy to cover the risk of having others do work on their property but I have not been able to find a company that sells anything like that person described. If you search “worker sues homeowner” you will find numerous articles to read about. I read of one where the hospital sent their big bill directly to the homeowner after it became clear that there was no other means of getting their bill paid.
