the owner of the car with insurance will be responsible
It is my understanding that the car owner's insurance pays for the person who was hit. The driver's insurance is responsible for the car he/she was driving.
Each could be ticketed. The driver for no insurance, and the owner for allowing unlawful operation. In the UK both are equally responsible for 'using a motor vehicle on a road without insurance' and both will be prosecuted.
As the registered owner you can be held responsible and financially liable for the actions of the drivers you allow to operate your vehicle. It would therefore be advisable to maintain your auto insurance.
the accident is cover by insurance if the driver did not have insurance but the owner dose then it should cover for uninsured motorist if the driver was not a excluded driver of the vehicle a excluded driver is like a relative that lives the the policy holder but is not on the policy as a driver
No. Car insurance is insurance on the car not insurance on the driver.
Car insurance typically follows the owner of the vehicle, not the driver. In the cae of an "excluded driver", unless that driver has his own policy that assumes coverage for a "borrowed" car, the original vehicle owner would be considered pursuable as an uninsured motorist.
There are 3 possibilities: You ARE responsbile (or partly responsible) If (1) the un-insured driver is a minor and you are their parent or guardian (2) you are the owner or part-owner of the vehicle they are driving (3) the un-insured driver is on your insurance. Other than those factors, you would not be responsible for them.
If a person that is not covered by the insurance of the car being driven is given a ticket, the driver is responsible for the ticket. The insurance company that covers the car can tell the owner what affect it may or may not have for the policy owner.
liability insurance goes with the driver, so the drivers insurance would pay for it. If the driver does not have insurance, then the owner of the car's insurance would pay if the vehicle was knowingly lent.
Ultimately, the driver is responsible for everything that happens while the vehicle is moving. The DRIVER is supposed to verify that the vehicle he is driving has insurance. I have been in this position, as the owner of the vehicle. And trust me it is the owner that gets the huge fine.
It shouldn't matter who was driving. The insurance company is responsible for the VEHICLE not the driver.
