No, you can't. When you made you claim under your auto policy for damages done by another party, you signed your subrogation rights over to your insurance company. This is what allows them to recover costs that they paid to fix your car. This is done to assist you in getting your car fixed quickly. You have given your rights to sue the other party to your insurance company. They will get the funds paid back from the other parties insurance or from them directly if he didn't have insurance. You could not sue anyway as you no longer have an economic loss since the car has been fixed; the court would see you as being put back right.

In any state, if a driver is found at fault then he is responsible for the other car's repairs, either using his insurance company or out of pocket.

Usually not.

If your auto is hit the other driver's auto insurance pays all medical expenses and so does your health insurance must you reimburse your company?

You do not have to reimburse your insurance company if the accident is the fault of the other driver and the claim is made on their insurance. If the accident is the fault of the other driver and their insurance does not cover everything and you make a claim on your insurance for reimbursement, your insurance will subrogate (collect back) from the other company.

What does excluded driver mean on policy?

One of my family members was hit by a driver who carried insurance but was an "excluded" driver on the policy of the car she was driving. After talking to the other person's insurance company, an excluded driver is essentially equivalent to an uninsured motorist. That means that his/her insurance company will not represent them and that, if they are liable for the accident, your insurance company can go after them personally for the damages.

Can an insured driver still sue me after his car was fixed by his insurance?

It is more likely you will be sued by the insured driver's insurance company. Just because the other driver had insurance, that does not exonerate you from having to pay damages if you are liable.

If you are in an accident where other driver is at fault and their insurance is covering car rental what can you do if insurance stops paying for car rental but car is still in shop being repaired?

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 complete the repairs. (In the insurance company's opinion). Although you will be roped into this, it should be between the insurance company and the body shop. If the insurance company won't budge ask the repair shop to pick up the remainder of the rental bill until repairs are complete. This is common in this industry.
