Ordinarily, an auto insurance policy will require that the driver be licensed as a condition of coverage. Therefore, absent extenuating circumstances, probably not.
if you have collision coverage file under that then your company will subrogate the uninsured driver...if no collision coverage you can file a state report, and/or small claims action.....
Third party car insurance or third party liability is also referred to as the 'act only' cover. It is a mandatory cover under the Motor Vehicles Act to ensure that the driver has adequate insurance coverage to pay for the damages resulting from an accident. The first party over here is the driver of the car, the second party is the insurance company and the third party is any person (injured or who claims damage) involved in the accident. For More
parents if the insurance is under their names
Of course, age doesn't matter. If you have a valid license and have a current insurance policy you can claim the accident.
You need to have uninsured motorist insurance as a rider on your insurance. If not you will have to sue the uninsured driver.
NO. By allowing a person who is NOT a licensed driver to drive your car, you committed an offense under the state regulations, so your insurance company can refuse to pay any claims. That is not true in California. Unless the person is specifically named as excluded from the policy, the insurance company will pay up to the limits on that policy. The original question asked about an UN_LICENSED driver. I can't think of any jurisdiction where a person that doesn't have a state issued driver's permit , who has a car accident would be covered by ANY insurance company. The insurance company MUST have a clause that bans such a thing from happening.
ANY driver with permission to drive that car by the owner is covered under that car's insurance policy. Insurance goes with the car...not the driver.
You still could pursued the claim under the vehicle. If the vehicle that hit your is being insured by Allstate Insurance, you should be able to set up the claim under that vehicle. Allstate might try to denied your claim based on unscheduled driver but they might get your car fixed with no question ask if you have a police/accident report.
it may depend on the state, but when I was in the insurance business in Tennessee, the primary insurance on the car kicked in first, then if that insurance didn't cover the damamge (IE: insurance limits were too low, or there was no primary insuance) then the driver's insurance kicked in.
Permissive use by unlicensed driverYes, So long as the driver was not excluded by name from your policy, your insurance will pay for the claims. The unlicensed driver is not covered under your policy. Your negligence in allowing an unlicensed driver is covered under your policy. So basically, Your Insurer will be paying what is considered a negligence claim against you as the policy holder.Other AnswersNo the insurance will not cover for the accident since the person driving the vehicle did not have a driving license and the owner has given the keys to the person - permission to drive. The owner must verify that the person to whom he is giving his/her vehicle has a valid driving license.
When you file an insurance claim, if you do not have enough insurance coverage, under insurance claims can be the result. Under insurance is a term used when calculating claims when the coverage is not enough and the policy has undervalued the amount insured.
if your accident is severe enough and the other person is underinsured - then you could collect from their insurance (must be their policy limits) and your insurance under the "underinsured coverage" or UIM - Underinsured motorist
