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!
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 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 total 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 observing 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..

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?
In the UK – the response is plain. 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.
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 private injury as a result of the accident: the driver of the vehicle, the proprietor 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.

How much would insurance cost if you were involved in a car accident that was your fault and both drivers have liability insurance?
How much will it COST? If you have a good record of several years without claims, your premiums may not increase, but if you are a fresh driver or have had prior claims the increase will be determined by your insurer and no one else can give you a definite response. Or how much will it PAY? If it was your fault, your liability coverage will pay for the harm to the other driver’s car and if you do not have collision coverage, you get to pay for your own repairs.

If the person was injured and makes a recovery under his or her uninsured motorist policy, the insurance company that paid damages can sueyoufor the amount it paid and possibly its attorney fees & costs. The most likely outcome in that event (or even in the property harm only script) the other person/insurance company would get a judgment against you. That’s a pretty serious situation not only with respect to your credit rating, but your wages could also be garnished.
