Did anything accrue any costs that exceed $500.00? If not, it's not worth the damage it will do to your driving record. As long as nobody is hurt and there is no damage, just let it go and be more careful next time. :)

What does auto collision insurance mean?

Auto insurance consists of both liability insurance and physical damage coverage. Collision coverage is part of the physical damage section of an insurance policy and is designed to either repair or replace your vehicle if you are involved in an accident up to the fair market value of the vehicle. Collision will pay for both damages caused in an at-fault accident and damages caused in a not at-fault accident if the other party did not have insurance. If the other party did have insurance and they were responsible for the damages, the other party's liability insurance would pay for your vehicle damages through Property Damage coverage. You are responsible to pay for your collision deductible for at-fault accidents before a claims payout will be made.

Do not know what you mean. Did the insurance company cancel? Did you lose the card? New Hampshire and Wisconsin do not have mandatory auto insurance laws. If you have an accident any you are to blame, you still should pay the damage either out of your pocket or thru the insurance company. If you have insurance, you still have to pay for the damage, thru increased rates.

What are the steps to take when one has been in a minor car accident?

The steps when one has been in a minor car accident where there are no injuries and minimal-to-no damage to both vehicles are still fairly similar to the steps involved in a major car accident. Drivers should turn on the hazard lights on their cars. Make sure to note the characteristics and license number of the other vehicle(s) involved. The police should be called immediately, even if nobody is injured and there is no major damage to either vehicle, because the insurance companies often look for a police report. Both drivers should attempt to move their car to the shoulder or off of the major road to avoid traffic congestion or further damage to either vehicle, but only if it is possible, safe, and very close.

What happens after your car is totaled and you only have liability?

If a car is totaled in an accident and only liability insurance is present, there is a chance that the other party's insurance will pay for the vehicle if the accident was their fault. If a car is totaled, but no others were involved, then the responsibility falls on the registered owner. This will not release the registered owner from paying for the vehicle, either, if money is still owed on the car.
