If the other party has insurance then their "property damage" coverage should cover damage to your vehicle. If you happen to be At Fault or there is some question as to who is at fault then it might be hard to collect from their insurance company. Only if the other party is at fault. If you have collision insurance, you can file the claim with your own agent. Then you will be paid for your damages, less your deductible, and when your company collects from the other company you will also get your deductible. If you do not have collision, you will have to file your claim directly with the at-fault driver's insurance. If the company denies your claim (and unless there is very compelling evidence that their client was at fault, they will), you will have to sue the driver. Then, IF YOU WIN the lawsuit, their insurance will pay.

If you have PLPD and your car is totaled in an accident that is not your fault will the other drivers insurance cover your damages?

I have PLPD insurance and was in an accident that was the other driver's fault. The lady's insurance paid for the damages, around $3000 which was the blue book retail value of the car, and they paid for a rental car for a short period. Since I had PLPD insurance, I had to pay for extra insurance on my rental vehicle, $12 a day extra, that their insurance would not cover and came out of my own pocket.


If you have an accident with your husband's vehicle which has only PLPD insurance can he make a claim against the full coverage on your vehicle?

No. If you had an accident with your husbands car and you were at fault with only PLPD insurance, the damages to your vehicle would not be covered.

What does PLPD car insurance cover you for?

PLPD is public liability and property damage. Property damage provides insurance cover against damage caused by you to the other person's vehicle or building, etc. Public liability insurance covers the occupants of both your and the other vehicle usually to a maximum of $250,000. Note that PL&PD does not cover your vehicle nor you as the driver.

It would depend on why the car was totaled and who's fault the accident was and what time of insurance do you have PLPD or Full Coverage


Can you get your totaled vehicle replaced by the other driver's insurance if the accident was not your fault but you have Michigan PLPD insurance?

Yes, but proof will be necessary - determining fault. Some insurers like to mess with your head and question the "fault" and deny coverage. Get it in writing - possibly by the at-fault driver or YOUR insurance company. Here in Canada, even if you only have PLPD, if the accident is not your fault you are covered for repair, minus the deductible.


If you have PLPD or no fault insurance and you hit someone from behind and their car is fine and yours is not will your car insurance cover it?

No. PL & PD cover injury and damage you do to other persons and their property. Collision and Comprehensive cover your vehicle.


Will PLPD cover the damages on your car if you are involved in a hit and run accident that is not your fault?

Unless you have an uninsured motorist coverage attached to your PLPD policy, you are otherwise screwed. Your only other option beyond this is to sue the driver if they got caught. Well we all know lawsuits can only be so effective but they can take time and money to complete. Even if you win you aren't guaranteed any money, if the other party ever pays at all. Moving on, PLPD only covers any at fault accidents YOU may have. When I had my first car I had PLPD BUT I had an uninsured motorist coverage on my policy. It turned out that was the right thing to do because I was involved in a hit and run myself, and since the other party was deemed as having no insurance, my car was paid for.


Is fire and theft covered on plpd insurance in Michigan?

No, if your car burns, is stolen, or is destroyed by vandalism, you won't receive a cent in Michigan with PLPD. Even in an accident you won't receive anything, your PLPD will only pay other people for damage you cause to them, it won't pay you a dime, that's why it's cheap.
