Legal liability covers the legal compensation that might have to be paid if a third party files any case against the driver for damage, loss, or fire. The driver is covered for a sum equal to his salary for the policy period. It also covers accidents and occupational diseases.

Joint liability means that at least two parties share liability in a lawsuit or legal dispute. Often, a jury decides what percentage of liability each defendant is responsible for. An example - An automobile is rear ended by a furniture delivery truck. The driver of the auto is injured and sues the furniture store AND the driver separately. A jury might find that more fault belonged to the driver since the truck was in good working condition. Therefore, this jury might decide that $100,000.00 should be awarded. They might decide that $80,000 of the damages are to be paid by the driver of the truck and $20,000 to the furniture store.

Do you still get paid by the other driver's insurance if he was at fault but you had no insurance?

Yes, but keep in mind that the other insurer may dispute liability (fault) and the extent of damages. Further, the other driver would have to have had liability insurance in order for you to get paid. Depending upon the jurisdiction in which you/he live(s), there may only be a requirement that property damage liability insurance be maintained. Therefore, if you sustained bodily injuries in the collision, the other driver would have been effectively uninsured.
