damages for which you are liable to others.

If a passenger in the backseat unseatbelted is injured and the driver of the car is at fault what liability does the driver’s insurance have?
When taking a one day “Driver’s class” in a classroom setting, to get a speeding ticket off my record in California, the instructor told the class to read the “fine print” on your policy, because many insurance companies elect to not cover you for injury in an accident, if someone is not seatbelted. This is most likely why in the Emergency Room, they always ask you numerous times, by different people, at different times, “Do you reminisce if your seatbelt(s) was(were) on?”. It is best to make sure you ask when shopping for insurance the question in advance, or better yet, this is why the instructor said it gives you utter cause to ask everyone in the car to fasten up, before you will drive them anywhere. Otherwise, you are entitled to ask anyone who won’t who will put you at risk, and everyone else in the car, to not share in the rail. (At this point, everyone will be belted in!)
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 brief 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.

Does the liability coverage on your auto insurance cover you against a liability exposure if you are at fault in an accident and a passenger in your car is killed in the accident?
It should, up to the amount of the policy. It is possible that your liability could exceed that amount, particularly if you had only “legal minimum”. And I suppose there could be some situations spelled out in your policy, maybe DUI or commission of a crime, that might create an exception. There may also be an issue if the passenger is a member of your household. #Two answ: Better read your insurance policy. Most liability insurance covers ONLY the person and property of another vehicle and not your own ESPECIALLY if you are at fault. .
In the UK – the response is ordinary. Your insurance will cover you for all injuries including a fatality to a passenger in your car. If there was a deliberate act your motor insurer may wish to recoup any compensation payment for the fatality. See the related link entitled “car accidents caused by family members” to see how your insurer might investigate if suspicious circumstances are suspected due to a family relationship.
What happens if a car accident was not your fault but you were driving a friend’s car that was insured by liability insurance?
I believe if, before the accident, you are listed as a driver on the insurance policy, then you are permitted to drive the vehicle too. If so, then the car at fault is at fault. If you are not listed as a driver, then your friend could be at fault if he gave you permission to drive the car. If he did not give you permission to drive the car, then you could be held liable. Liability covers only the other car, unless you have uninsured motorist insurance included, then your car is also covered if the at fault driver has no insurance, if you are listed as a driver. If the car at fault has no insurance what-so-ever, then they could be at fault because they should not even be on the road if your state requires minimal liability insurance. You can call any insurance company to find out, and remain anonymous if you would like, and if they will tell you. Or you can call a lawyer who gives free consults to find out. I would suggest that you very first look up your state laws (regarding automotive insurance requirements for your state, if it has any). Then go from there. State laws may vary!

A co signer can take charge of the car if the person theycosigned for is not able or does not do what they agreed to. When afinancial institution takes out insurance on the car it is tosolely keep the institution from being sued, it is not to fix orcover the borrower in anyway, but the borrower will have to pay forthe insurance that the financial institution takes out, theyusually put it onto the end of the note. Best to keep insurance onthe car.

When a car with only liability insurance and a salvaged title is totaled a 2nd time what is the responsibility of the at faults insurance company as far as replacement?
The title is irrelevant, they need to put you in equal transportation during the claims process and issue you a check based on the cars book value. If they give you less then you feel is reasonable you do have the capability to negotiate. You better have logical well thought out facts tho. In other words, what will it cost to substitute your vehicle with an equal to your vehicle?
How much would insurance cost if you were involved in a car accident that was your fault and both drivers have liability insurance?
How much will it COST? If you have a good record of several years without claims, your premiums may not increase, but if you are a fresh driver or have had prior claims the increase will be determined by your insurer and no one else can give you a definite reaction. Or how much will it PAY? If it was your fault, your liability coverage will pay for the harm to the other driver’s car and if you do not have collision coverage, you get to pay for your own repairs.

Does liability insurance cover insurers car if other driver is uninsured?
No, liability insurance only covers the other vehicle if you are at fault for an accident.

This would be the case if the other driver is at fault. This is usually a separate part of the policy, and may or may not be included automatically in your policy depending on the state. I would suggest you either check you policy coverage, talk with your insurance agent or talk with your insurance company.

I got into an accident delivering a pizza and all i have is progressive liability insurance does progressive have to cover the other guys harm to his property if i was at fault?
The insurance is actually PL/PD, which is Public Liability and Property Harm. This coverage is mandatory in most (or all) of the US and Canada, as it is to cover any harm or injury that you cause to the person or property of others. The public liability portion of the insurance is to cover injury or death of the other person in the event that you cause an accident. This may include, but is not limited to, rear-ending someone, hitting a pedestrian, or driving into a store. The property harm covers the cost of physical items, like cars, buildings, telephone poles, etc, that are bruised by your neglect. I believe that if you do not have decent insurance for a delivery driver, then your insurance company may choose not to cover you for PL/PD if you get into an accident while delivering pizzas. I have heard, however, that the specific insurance you need for delivering pizzas depends largely upon whether you wear a uniform, have signs or decals on your car, and how many hours you work or kilometres you drive.. but don’t quote me on that.

It depends upon the coverage that you purchase. Normally, when you buy liability insurance, you get both property harm and bodily injury liability coverage.

The failure to do so can result in the suspension of your license and tags under Financial Responsibility Laws. The nature of liability insurance is such that it pays damages to an harmless third party to whom you cause injury. In that sense, it protects you from private liability up to the policy thresholds that you have bought. If you are sued as a result of the incident and fault is contested, the insurer also provides you with an attorney to defend you. The insurer pays the attorney’s fees and related court costs (such as, but not limited to, court reporter expenses).

Does liability insurance cover death in a single car accident?
Liability coverage is “third-party” insurance that pays for injuries or death to another person as a result of the insured’s negligence (carelessness). There are different types of it, not just car-related. Whether or not it applies in a given situation depends upon the dynamics of the occurrence. Therefore, if the theory of the negligence was, for example, that a landowner created a dangerous condition that proximately caused the single-car collision, the landowner’s liability insurance could arguably be triggered so as to cover the incident. If a passenger was killed in a single car collision, the driver/proprietor’s liability coverage may be triggered if the driver was negligent in the operation of the vehicle.

Yes, as long as the car is parked on private property.

If the harm was intentional, meaning that the driver of the insured car deliberately struck the uninsured parked car, then the at fault driver’s insurance will NOT pay because of a clause in the policy that excludes coverage for ‘intentional acts’ like criminal activity (which is what this is). So the parked car’s proprietor would have to pursue a civil case against the at fault driver and attempt to collect against their individual assets.
