The deductible applies only to your insurance policy so you can not.
Yes, you do.
The other driver should be paying if they were at fault; you may sue them for your deductible in small claims court if they had no insurance.
The amount of a policy deductible on a homeowners insurance policy is chosen by the policyholder. Your policy deductible is the amount you are responsible for paying before the insurance company will payout for a claim. If you experience a loss to your dwelling or your personal property, your homeowners insurance policy deductible applies. The deductible does not apply to other coverages on the policy. If you experience a loss under your deductible, you will not be eligible for a payout. If your loss exceeds your deductible, your deductible will be deducted from your claims payout check.
You do not have to pay the deductible if the other person's insurance is paying the claim. If you put the claim through your insurance, and do not have uninsured, underinsured motorist protection then you will have to pay the deductible regardless of who's at fault.
Insurance for one's personal property such as auto or homeowner's insurance is tax deductible. Other tax deductible insurances are medical and dental insurances.
If you have collision coverage on your vehicle you can collect from your insurance company for the damages. You will not have to pay the deductible if you were determined by the insurance company to not be at fault for the accident. They then go after the other insurance company to get the money they paid you back. If you do not carry collision coverage then you need to file with other insurance company, they will then decide who was at fault for the accident if their party was at fault they then pay you for the damages to your vehicle.
If you were legally at fault, you are responsible to pay all damages to other vehicle. Even if you pay the other persons deductible, that insurance co. will come after you for total amount. The person that you gave the money to for their deductible will then have to give some of that back to insurance co., if they find out that deductible was given to him (her) by you.
There is not deductible with liability insurance coverage. Liability pays the party who is not fault for their damages without a deductible. If you were at fault collision would pay for damages to your vehicle but you will have a deductible of whatever you selected when you purchased the insurance policy.
Within every health insurance policy there are "free" benefits, such as preventive care. In addition, most policies - not all - offer benefits such as a copay for office visits and even copays for precriptions benefits. Let's refer to these benefits a PRE-DEDUCTIBLE benefits. Other than whatever pre-deductible benefits are included on your policy YOU are responsible for all other medical expenses until you have spent the amount equal to your deductible. If you have a $1,500 deductible, other than your pre-deductible benefits, you would be responsible for the first $1,500 in medical expenses each calendar year. After that, the carrier will begin paying their share.
If you are going through your own insurance, you are responsible for your collision deductible. If the other person is at fault, you can go through their insurance under their liability coverage so you do not have to pay a deductible.
Every state is different. Where I live, if you are the responsible party in the wreck then your insurance has to repair the vehicle that you hit. You will be responsible for paying your deductible to have your vehicle fixed. Also the driver without insurance will be ticketed by the authorities if they are present.
If you had a collision and the other party does not have insurance, you would have to pay the deductible. Your insurance company would pay for any needed repairs.
