UM PD (Uninsured Motorist, Property Damage) may not cover hit and run because this coverage kicks in only when the other party causing the accident is legally uninsured. Since there is no evidence that the other party was legally uninsured then coverage is not provided unless the other hit and run vehicle is discovered and is ruled to be legally uninsured at the time of hit and run accident.

What are the coverage characteristics of auto insurance?

Auto insurance usually has several components. Not all coverages are purchased by every applicant, but the basic coverages are as follows: Liability insurance provides coverage to the named insured and others who are identified by name or by relationship to the named insured in the policy for negligent acts or omissions while operating the insured vehicle. Stated otherwise, if a covered person is legally liable for causing damage to another in the operation of the insured car, the insurer will pay those damages. Because the damages are payable to a third party, liability insurance is often referred to as "third-party coverage". Liability insurance may be for bodily injury or for property damage, and the policy will specify the amount of coverage that is available for each type of damage. Some policies of commercial auto insurance have "combined single limits", which meld bodily injury and property damage coverage into a total available limit. Medical Payments / Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is a form of "first party" coverage because it pays expenses incurred by the insured. Specifically, it pays a portion of the medical expenses and lost wages insured by the insured and others specified in the policy and/or by statute without regard to fault for the collision. The payments may be subject to a deductible. Under-insured / Uninsured (UM) is designed to compensate the named insured or others designated in the policy by name or by their relation to the insured, for bodily injury, and the effects thereof, if the at-fault party did not have bodily injury liability coverage. Because it effectively takes the place of the adverse party's liability coverage, the damages recoverable by the insured or other person to whom the coverage applies may be reduced or eliminated according to the rules of comparative or contributory negligence to which the jurisdiction adheres.

What is automobile liability insurance coverage?

Automobile liability insurance coverage is one of several types of autobile coverage. It is required by the law of most US jurisdictions in order to register a vehicle for operation on public highways. It is often also required to be shown as a condition of obtaining a driver's license. Automobile liability insurance is intended to cover the negligent acts or omissions of a driver in the operation of the covered motor vehicle. Depending upon whether it is property damage liability coverage, bodily injury liability coverage, or both, it generally covers the correlating kind of damage sustained by the person who was not at fault. In that sense, it is considered to be "third-party" coverage in that it does not pay for the damages sustained by the insured person. Another aspect of automobile liability coverage is that if the aggrieved party makes a claim against the insured, such as by filing suit, the liability insurer defends the insured by retaining an attorney to defend the insured. The insurer pays the attorney, but also has the right to control the defense, including by settling the claim.

What is a full coverage auto insurance?

Their is no such thing as full coverage in legal terms. What people refer to when they say that is Physical Damage Coverage for a vehicle. What physical damage coverage breaks down into 2 parts. Collision Coverage: Does include a deductible, covers the vehicle from damage resulting in a person being at-fault in an accident, and damage has occurred to the vehicle in which it has to be repaired or replaced. This does also protect the vehicle if an accident or damage results from a uninsured motorists or under insured motorists Comprehensive Coverage:(also known as other then collision) Does include a deductible, covers the vehicle from damages due to vehicle that are out of control of the insured. This would be from weather, vandalism, theft, hitting an animal, and etc. Remember, insurance company's insure vehicles of the actual cash amount at that time. If you have a collector car, you would to get collector car insurance, in which their is a stated amount.

What if someones insurance refuses to pay for the damage his insured caused?

Listen to the explanation. It can be because the insured did not have the specific coverage to pay for your damage. For example, if the other party had collision coverage only on his/her auto policy, it would not pay for your damages because it covers only damage to his/her car. Liability coverage would be needed to pay for your damages. Another reason might be that the other party, especially if insured under a commercial policy, might have a large self-insured retention. This is similar in nature to a deductible, but applies to the liability coverage. The insurer is not obliged to pay until damages exceed the amount of the retention. Yet another reason is that even if the other party did once have liability coverage, it may have been canceled because the personh did not make the required premium payments. The insured is generally required to timely report the collision to his/her insurer so that the insurer can investigate. If there has been no report, or if the insured otherwise fails to cooperate with his/her insurer, coverage may be denied. Finally, the insurer, after investigation, may conclude that its insured did not cause the damage. If so, you will have to decide whether to sue the other party for damages. If the occurrence was one to which the insurance applies, the insurer will generally defend its insured in the suit and pay those damages which the insured is found to be legally liable.

If an uninsured driver with permission from an insured car's owner gets into an accident will insurance cover the other vehicle's damage?

Insurance follows the car, not the driver. So as long as the automobile is insured, so is the driver. Just make sure the driver has a valid driver's license.
