If you have total Coverage Auto Insurance, Then the Comprehensive and Collision portions of your coverage would pay for damages to your own car.
If you just have liability insurance only. Then you just have coverage for the other car and there is no coverage for your own vehicle.
Will insurance companies cover depreciated value from an accident that is not your fault if they determine not to consider your car a total loss?
I am not sure what you mean by “cover”. If the car is totalled, it depends on your carrier, as to whether they will charge for depreciation. Most top A++ carriers list cars at “Agreed Value”, which means you get the total replacement value for the car, regardless of depreciation. ResponseGeico and Alstate insurance would not cover the depreciated value of my car, even however it was not my fault. I was told no one does… I don’t see why, but they say there is no way to figure out how much was actually lost because your vehicle is now considered to have “one accident”. I did ask several dealers if that information matters to them and they said they do take off money for accidents. sorry for the bad news, just another unfair thing in life. ReactionYes, if the accident was at no level your fault and the other party is accepting all liability you can send a request lettering requesting they pay for the depreciating value of your vehicle. I would search more online how to write this, but you will need back up documentation demonstrating the depreciation of your vehicle from at least two different dealerships. A copy of the Kelly Blue Book value will also help. I have now been in two no-fault accidents and in both cases the other insurer’s company has lodged for depreciation value.
If you have PLPD or no fault insurance and you hit someone from behind and their car is fine and yours is not will your car insurance cover it?
No. PL & PD cover injury and harm you do to other persons and their property. Collision and Comprehensive cover your vehicle.
If you have PLPD and your car is totaled in an accident that is not your fault will the other drivers insurance cover your damages?
I have PLPD insurance and was in an accident that was the other driver’s fault. The lady’s insurance paid for the damages, around $3000 which was the blue book retail value of the car, and they paid for a rental car for a brief period. Since I had PLPD insurance, I had to pay for extra insurance on my rental vehicle, $12 a day extra, that their insurance would not cover and came out of my own pocket.
How will an at-fault accident while driving a company car covered by corporate insurance affect your private insurance premiums in the future?

If someone hits your car and you have pl-pd insurance will their insurance cover your car if they were totally at fault?
Yes.eg: If you have pl/pd, the insurance won’t pay for repairs for YOUR car if it is you fault, but they will pay the repairs for the other car.
There’s the big problem of having only the required liability insurance. If you do not have comprehensive and collision, you may have to sue the at-fault driver to force his insurance carrier pay. If you have coverage of your own, you can file a claim with your agent and instantaneously collect the damages (less your deductible) and your company will sue his if necessary. If and when they win or receive a settlement, you will get your deductible back.

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.

Will auto insurance cover an accident if one is at fault however the driver in the other vehicle is not the possessor of that car and is not on that car’s insurance policy?
Yes, your auto insurance will payout to the other party involved in the accident. Your auto policy covers “you” from any financial loses. So in retrospect you wont have to pay the damages you caused to the other veichle..
Concerning the party that is not the possessor nor on the car owners policy, the car possessor’s auto policy covers the car and any lawful driver aslong as their were no “misrepresentation” on the insurance application/contract. By misrepresentation I mean, at the moment the car possessor signed the application and contract he was to state any material facts that could switch the underwriting decision such as premiums. For example, if the car possessor has a son who will also drive the car, the car proprietor is obligated by law to diclose that to the insurance company. In the event that an accident occurs and a “undisclosed driver” was operating the veichle the insurance has Two options. 1. He can Void the policy/contract and not cover the auto holder. or Two. He can cover the auto possessor and payout damages but later sue in a court a law that amount and underpayed premiums for the time the policy was active and the undiclosed driver was operating the car..
Note” In uncommon cases, an insurance company will cover the “undisclosed driver” aslong as the difference in the premium is paid.
Do you have to call your insurance company if your car was not at fault?
The terms of your Insurance Contract always require that you report an accident regardless of fault. This is because even tho’ you do not consider yourself to be at fault, the other driver may report the accident to them anyway. Better to be safe than sorry.
What harm does car insurance cover?
Car insurance is too broad to define what is covered and what is excluded. There are different options and coverages that cover different things. Some cover your car itself and will pay to repair your car; this is known as Comp and Collision. Some coverages protect you from being sued; these are Bodily Injury liability and Property Harm liability. Some coverages will pay for your injuries; these are Private Injury Protection and/or Medical Payments coverage. Do you want to be protected from someone hitting you, injuring your family, and not having any insurance? If so, you will want Uninsured Motorist coverage. Talk to your local insurance agent and have them go over all the different coverages and how they work and what they cover. It’s best to know this before an accident and not after. After will be too late.
What is covered by car insurance?

I am 25 from California. If I drove my friend’s car alone with instruction permit and got a minor accident which I am not at-fault will the insurance covers the car harm?
The insurance coverage depends solely on the insurance policy. For example, many policies state that if a car holder consents to someone else driving their car and they get in an accident, their insurance will cover it, regardless of fault. However, the insurance policy may exclude drivers without valid driver’s licenses or with only instruction permits. The law in the state where I grew up mandated that even if you were driving with a permit, a licensed driver had to be in the passenger seat. Is this also true of California instruction permits? If so, it’s likely that the insurance won’t cover it because a disturbance of the law occurred. But the bottom line is that you have to cautiously look at your friend’s insurance policy and look for clauses that state who the car can be loaned to. If you’re at odds with your friend over the accident, I suggest calling the insurance company and finding out. Don’t provide any of your private information to the insurance agency and don’t state who you are (make up a name, say you’re just checking into their coverage, whatever. Because if you identify yourself and the call is recorded it could be used against you to prove liability later.). Just state that you want to know if, under their policies, if you loaned your car to someone with an instruction permit in CA and they got into an accident, would it be covered under their policy? That’s indeed the only way to be sure unless you and your friend are copacetic and you can check out the actual policy yourself.

For the driver’s injuries if he does not own a vehicle then the private injury protection on your policy will cover his injuries, once again subject to any exclusions.
Car is at fault but they have no insurance?
I can tell you what happens in the State Of Alabama… Where we have a MANDATORY insurance law… To “protect” the law obiding, insurance carrying citizens from suffering a loss due to an uninsured motorist…..
Even however we have a LAW, it is a paper tiger..
I have dialed numbers until my fingers are blistered. I have talked on the phone until my ears are sore and my mouth hurts. In the end, I have been transferred, given wrong numbers and told to contact my congressman to “strengthen” our mandatory insurance law..
I did find out one thing tho’, we have a form called an SR-13 that can be downloaded from the Alabama Dept. Of Public Safety website. Even however this has nothing to do with the law or disturbance of it, it is tied to an old law that protects people from suffering a loss in the event of an accident with someone who has no insurance. Basically, their license will be suspended from anywhere inbetween Two and Ten years. Depending on the circumstance. If you are in Alabama, call the Dept. Of Public Safety and ask about this form or go to the website… http://www.dps.state.al.us/ and go after the quick links.. If you’re not, contact the same department in your state and embark there. Hope this helps.

Ask the insurance company why they are no longer paying the rental bill. If they have accepted liability the only reason they would stop paying would be due to the repair shop taking excessive time to finish the repairs. (In the insurance company’s opinion).

If the insurance company won’t budge ask the repair shop to pick up the remainder of the rental bill until repairs are accomplish. This is common in this industry.
