What happens if your daughter drives your car with your permission but she is not insured as an additional driver on your policy and does not have her own insurance policy?

If she's stopped by the police, whe'll be cited for not having insurance. This means she'd then need to get insurance instantly (see the form SR-22), and report that to the court. Failure to do so can get her license suspended. If she is invovled in an accident with no insurance, the bills will all go to you. More, she will be cited for driviung without insurance (even if she didn't cause the accident). and, in an accident, this doesn't always result in a warning ticket -- sometimes there's a real penalty. I would suggest that, if she's a relatively new driver, you get her attached to your policy, as it'll usually cost less than getting her her own insurance. Your insurance agent can help with this.

What can you legally do when the person who hit you insurance company will not pay for the accident because their insured is denying fault but he was cited at the scene?

If you have insurance call YOUR insurance and they will pay for your damages and then they will subrogate (meaning they will go after the other persons insurance for reimbursement) If the other person has been cited then they are clearly at fault. Nobody can deny that, make sure you contact the police department for a copy of the police report as well.

Can an insurance raise if you have been in an accident but not charged?

Absolutely, the fact that you are cited or not cited will not apply. The insurance company will determine your fault. For example, an accident caused on private property doesn't fall under police jurisdiction but you still caused it so your company would raise your rates.
