What can happen if you hit someone’s car and you don’t have car insurance?

At fault accident with no insuranceIf you were at fault, you can be held liable for all the costs of damages and injuries associated with the accident you caused. If you had purchased insurance, the financial liabilities would have been transferred to your insurer via your insuring contract. If the other party had only liability coverage, Since you have no insurance, the individual will have to pursue you directly for their loss. As you state that you are uninsured their is no insurance company for them to pursue the claim so they would have to sue you directly if they so choose. If the other party had Total coverage and was paid by their insurance company, then the right of recovery passes to that insurer who can also pursue you for the costs they incurred in covering the damages from the accident you caused. If you live in one of the Legal U.S. states that have no fault insurance statutes, the other persons insurance will cover a portion of their injuries under very first party injury coverage but No Fault does not apply to property harm so they will still have to pursue you directly for property harm reimbursement. If you live in one of the 38 U.S. states that operate under traditional tort then no fault has no bearing on your financial obligations. Most states do have a “Very first Party” Medical coverage requirement usually referred to as PIP (Individual Injury Protection) for injuries regardless of fault on an auto insurance policy that many laymen confuse with no fault. It is simply an assurance of minimum very first party private injury coverage for a motorist and should not be confused with no fault. Since No U.S. State has a true no fault auto insurance. The National Insurance Council has recommended several years ago that usage of the term be discontinued to avoid confusion among the general public. ResponseMost injuries will fall under the issues of “No Fault” laws in your state if you live in one the Eighteen No Fault States. Very first and foremost, failure by you to carry auto insurance is a criminal matter in the US. See the laws specific to your state for the penalty that can be incurred for failing to insure your vehicle. Just because you hit another vehicle is not proof that you are at fault. AboutNo FaultInsuranceNo fault insurance laws are similar in every state that has them. Eighteen states have no “No Fault” laws. There are enough differences in those states where No Fault laws exist to make it impractical to give a comprehensive response. By and large, you are protected to some degree by the insurance coverage you have. Your contract with your insurance carrier is inbetween you and they. The No Fault laws simply make it difficult or unlikely for you to seek compensation/restitution from the other party’s insurer. It is the place ofyourinsurer to seek damages from the other party’s insurance carrier. Now in the case of an uninsured motorist (UM) or under-insured motorist (UIM), each state regulates what can be done. Much of this falls under private loss, private injury, and liability law. The one matter that is the same in all states is the question of fault. “No Fault” is an insurance matter. The assignment of fault in an accident is a matter of who did what. For example: if you hit another car where the other driver failed to yield the right of way, that driver is at fault. If however you fail to yield, say while injecting the highway (merging from an entrance ramp), and your vehicle clips another, youare at fault. The at fault driver is liable. The courts of each state must determine the dollar amount for that liability. In many states, physical liability is limited (the amount paid out for specific injuries), but the amounts paid out for mental and/or emotional suffering, and punitive damages can be largely unlimited. You must recover your damages from your insurance provider, who in turn may sue the other party’s provider to recover their damages, OR you must sue under Loss, Injury, and Liability laws. If you fail to sue, and you are uninsured, you get nothing. If you are uninsured and get sued, you are liable for the judgment of the court and subject to the collection laws of your state and the federal government. In states like Louisiana and other areas in the south and southwest, recovery from parties unwilling to pay makes civil suit a waste of time. (See the specific collection laws of your state AND the FFDCPA–Federal Fair Debt collections Practices Act). The brief response here then is that you as the uninsured driver can be sued. If you are at fault, the “civil” liability is yours under the jurisdiction of the state courts. In the event of criminal liability or criminal negligence (such as DWI/DUI type situations), the state or federal government will step in and your civil responsibility will be of little or at least secondary consequence. In addition to this, most states have some sort of civil or criminal penalty for those who are uninsured or who do not or cannot provide proof of insurance. For example, in the state of Michigan, failure to provide proof of insurance at a traffic stopcanresult in a civil infraction (the issuance of a ticket), at the discretion of the law enforcement officer. This ticket is similar to a “Repair and Report” type ticket. You will be required to display proof of insurance to the court within, typically, thirty days. That proof need not be retroactive to the date of the infraction. You could purchase insurance the day of your court appearance and sate the court. Failure to display proof to the court CAN result in a misdemeanor charge, with a sentence of thirty days to one year in jail, and/or up to a $500 fine. It is not automatic however, and is up to the discretion of the presiding judge. However, if you are incapable to showcase proof of insurance, AND you have seven (7) or more points on your license, you may be entered into the Driver Responsibility Program (Driver Responsibility Law MCL 257.732a), and you will be required to pay a fee of $200 per year for at least two years. Failure to pay the fee can result in the suspension of your license. As stated previously, every state is different; however, the similarities inbetween them may be covered in the Michigan example.

What can you do when someone hit your car and has no insurance?

If you maintain collision insurance on your vehicle, you can claim under it. The insurer will pay the reasonable cost of repair subject to the policy deductible. That said, most states have laws that require that an insurer proclaim a vehicle a total loss if damages exceed a stated percentage of its actual cash value. In that event, the insurer pays the insured the actual cash value less the policy deductible. If you do not have collision coverage, you are free to file a civil lawsuit against the at fault driver. If he/she has liability insurance, the insurer will either defend liability and/or damages through an attorney hired to represent the other party, or, if the insurer agrees that its insured was at fault, may voluntarily pay the claim. If the other party has no liability insurance, you may still sue him/her and if you prevail, you will obtain a judgment. Judgments are not self-executing, meaning that you have to take further steps to collect if the defendant does not voluntarily pay. One effective means of collecting is to provide a copy of the judgment, the police report and other required documentation to that office within the Department of Motor Vehicles that enforces financial responsibility laws. Most states have a provision permitting for the suspension of licenses and tags of persons who do not pay judgments relating to auto collisions. That usually gets the other person’s attention.

Copy the insurance company with the letter, and make reference to the policy number in the letter so that the insurer can identify it and assign an adjuster. Ideally, you should get a repair estimate before or while you are doing this. Take pictures of the harm, too. If no one responds within a reasonable time (10-14 days or so), you are free to file suit. The court in which you file will depend upon the court rules of your state, as different courts have different monetary jurisdictions, so you should contact the Clerk of Court for guidance. The lawsuit needs to be filed with the Clerk (for which there will be a fee), and a copy of the suit papers served (delivered) to the person(s) being sued by the Sheriff or a private process server (who will also charge a fee).

What happens if you only have liability insurance and an uninsured motorist hits your car when its parked?

Liability insurance protects you only from a claim for damages by another party if you were at fault for a collision; it does not pay to repair your own car. Therefore, if the other party was not insured, you must pay for the repairs to your car yourself. Whether or not you do will depend upon whether the cost of repair is commensurate with the value of the car. That is, if the cost of repair is substantially more than the value, it may not make business sense to do the repairs. You are also free to file a civil lawsuit against the at-fault party to recover the cost of repairs. In making the decision as to whether or not to do so, you will need to evaluate if the other party has the means to pay any judgment entered against him/her.
