If an uninsured driver who borrowed her roommates insured car got into an accident how can the driver take total liability if necessary?
If it’s NECESSARY, the judge will tell you what to do. Very likely have 25% of your wages garnished until the judgment is sated. If you are college roommates, you may still be covered under your parents’ auto policy or an umbrella policy if they have one. But any insurance that may apply to you will be secondary to the holder’s policy and unless the damages exceed her thresholds, any liability to any other person’s property should be covered. Of course, if she does not have collision and comprehensive, they will not pay for any harm to her car. In that case, if you have no coverage and she doesn’t want to take you to court, your only option is to pay for her repairs or buy her a fresh car.
If you have uninsured motorist insurance are in an accident and its you fault other driver has no insurance or drivers license can you get your car stationary if you only have liability insurance?
As a broker, I can tell you NO, there is no coverage if you are at fault. Now if you are only partially at fault, example, 50%, and it’s proven, there may be coverage under your carrier. I’m in Canada where things are a bit different but it wouldn’t hurt you to attempt right?
Does the liability coverage on your auto insurance cover you against a liability exposure if you are at fault in an accident and a passenger in your car is killed in the accident?
It should, up to the amount of the policy. It is possible that your liability could exceed that amount, particularly if you had only “legal minimum”. And I suppose there could be some situations spelled out in your policy, maybe DUI or commission of a crime, that might create an exception. There may also be an issue if the passenger is a member of your household. #Two answ: Better read your insurance policy. Most liability insurance covers ONLY the person and property of another vehicle and not your own ESPECIALLY if you are at fault. .
In the UK – the reaction is ordinary. Your insurance will cover you for all injuries including a fatality to a passenger in your car. If there was a deliberate act your motor insurer may wish to recoup any compensation payment for the fatality. See the related link entitled “car accidents caused by family members” to see how your insurer might investigate if suspicious circumstances are suspected due to a family relationship.
If you are in an accident with an illegally parked car who has the liability?
This question would require much more information to be answered. Very possibly the holder of each vehicle could be responsible for their own harm. Consider seeking legal advice.
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!

Give him the name of your insurance company. While you are photographing the accident attempt and get a shot of him too. If the police will come, then call them. If it seems the other driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, then call the police. If the other driver admits fault (for example, if he says “Sorry, that was my fault. I shouldn’t have crossed that line, or whatever), write down his exact words, if possible. You may have to use them later.

A policy that might have seemed adequate when purchased years ago,may not suggest suficient protection for todays financialexposures. .
ResponseIf you have financial assets that could conceivably be consideredin a costly lawsuit, then you need to carry enlargened thresholds ofcoverage. I carry auto liability boundaries that are far and above whatI am required by law to carry. Even with these higher thresholds, I still worry about any excess. I amconsidering aPrivate Umbrella Policywith thresholds up to $Two,000,000 .
Assets to consider, ALL of which could be at risk: Home,savings, investment accounts, private belongings, FUTURE EARNINGS(!!!!)….. some scary stuff….

In the UK it is an offense to drive a motor vehicle without a valid policy of motor insurance.

See the related link entitled “car accident claim” for a description of how to prove who was at fault in a car 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 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.

Does liability insurance cover death in a single car accident?
Liability coverage is “third-party” insurance that pays for injuries or death to another person as a result of the insured’s negligence (carelessness). There are different types of it, not just car-related. Whether or not it applies in a given situation depends upon the dynamics of the occurrence. Therefore, if the theory of the negligence was, for example, that a landowner created a dangerous condition that proximately caused the single-car collision, the landowner’s liability insurance could arguably be triggered so as to cover the incident. If a passenger was killed in a single car collision, the driver/proprietor’s liability coverage may be triggered if the driver was negligent in the operation of the vehicle.
