YES! But be warned it depends on what type of coverage you have.

Some insurance companies will call that an "act of god" and refuse the claim even if you have full coverage, so you have to READ THE FINE PRINT.

Can your insurance go after someone that damaged your car and get your deductible back?

Yes. If someone hits your vehicle and the insurance company pays for the damages, they will go after the person who was at fault for the damages paid and after they collect all the money paid out they will reimburse you for the deductible that you paid when the vehicle was repaired. The damages were paid under your uninsured motorists coverage which has at least a $250 deductible for property damage so when all the damages are recovered from the person, that will include the deductible and you will get a check back for that amount.

Can an insurance company come after me for car repair damages caused by my son jumping on a car if I pay the victims deductible?

Absolutely. Not only are you legally liable for the amount of the damages but by paying the deductible you basically admitted your liability. When you agree to pay and you will agree to pay make sure you let them know that you paid the person for their deductible so you can get credit for that amount as long as the other party does not deny that you paid them.

If you get into a car accident and the other person does not have insurance do you still pay the deductible?

This depends on many factors, including the ability of the other person to pay for your damages. Some insurance policies will not require you to pay a deductible. Others will. If the other person can pay for the damages, you and your insurance will not have to pay.

If a truckdriver hits a car who pays the deductible the driver or the owner of the truck?

THE POLICY HOLDER, WHO IS USUALLY THE OWNER OF THE TRUCK IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEDUCTIBLE. If the truck driver is fully responsble for the accident, his insurance should pay for the damages to the car and there would be no deductible. If the car owner went through his coverage first to get repairs done, then the car owner is responsible for the deductible. Then the car owners insurance would go through subrugation to the truck drivers insurance to get full payment of the loss. When that is completed, the car owner would get his deductible returned to him.

Tree falls on car?

Hopefully you have full coverage auto insurance with comprehensive. The tree owner is not liable for damage to cars from falling trees unless you could somehow prove that he was knowingly or negligently responsible for the tree falling on your car.
