This will of course vary by state. Typically after the insurance route is exhuasted then they go after the driver then owner. If married then both. Just remember they always ask for more than whats available. Your ins company should be negotiating on your behalf for a resonable settlement. They want this to be settled quickly. depending on what the circumstances of the situation is, one never knows what the outcome may be.

What is the title insurance?

Title insurance is protection that ensures that you are the proper owner of the property and that if someone comes forward with a valid claim to a portion of your property, the title insurance company may have to pay that person the value of the claim. In buying real estate you have to make sure that the seller truly owns the property in full with no defects in title. The title insurance company reviews the land records to make sure of this. If the company states that the owner is the full owner, it backs its opinion with title insurance. Some title defects might not be covered though, but the lawyer helping the buyer will make sure that it is safe to buy the property.

Can you buy title insurance?

Title insurance is a specialized type of insurance that is not generally sold by insurance agents. It is usually provided by an attorney and underwritten by a title insurance company who specializes in this type of insurance. The title insurance company relies on statements and work done by the attorney when he does the title search and he has some liability for his work. You can't just decide that you want a title insurance policy anytime. It is usually done when you purchase a piece of property. I suppose that if you wanted to pay for a new title search you may be able to buy a policy at a time other than at closing.
