Whose auto insurance will cover you if driving another person’s car?
Borrowed Vehicles for the UKIn the UK – the general rule is that the driver’s own vehicle insurance will pay for any accidents other than when the driver is driving a car with permission and is named on the car proprietor’s policy. If the driver has no insurance the driver has a private liability to pay for injuries and harm to third parties. Either the car possessor’s insurance can be used to meet a compensation claim or the Motor Insurers Bureau will step in to pay compensation if no car insurance is available from either the driver or the possessor. See the related link entitled “accident car insurance” – for an explanation of all forms of car insurance in the UK and the function of the MIB. Insurance Coverage in Someone Else’s vehicle – USAIn The USA this will vary state by state according to local regulation as well as the type of Auto Insurance Policy in place at the time. It’s always best to get coverage advice from your Insurance Agent. As a general rule across the 50 states, if the holder of the “individual use” vehicle being driven has adequate coverage then that policy is treated as primary and any coverage the driver has is secondary or excess in the event damages exceed the thresholds of the vehicle holder’s insurance policy or in the event of no coverage for the operator under the owners policy. If coverage is afforded under the vehicle owners policy then it will act as primary coverage. If not, then the drivers own auto liability insurance (if any) will step up from secondary and invoke as very first party coverage. Depending on the policy language and coverage selected options, liability, uninsured motorist, pip and medical portions will all invoke and provide you coverage. Extra Considerations or possible coverage Gaps (Please add more here if you can think of some) .
Your Private auto Policy will “Not” go afteryou for operation of ahired business or commercial use vehicleunless you have elected business use coverage as well. .
If the vehicle proprietor has purchased a limited form type or a ” named driver ” policy. however economic for those on a budget, no coverage at all may be afforded to occasional or permitted drivers. .
The degree of coverage beyond the above that may invoke are dependent on various factors such as the reason for driving the other vehicle, loaners, rentals or replacement status vehicles and other local or state regulations. It’s always best to talk with your agent and make sure you undertsand your coverage before loaning or borrowing a vehicle. Glad MotoringInsurance Coverage in anothers vehicleI am an auto insurance adjuster and the quickest reaction to your question is – “it depends on the Proprietor of the vehicle’s policy language”. Most auto insurance policies WILL in fact cover ANY driver of the insured vehicle, UNLESS that driver has been previously excluded from the policy or UNLESS the driver has STOLEN the vehicle. This would have to be proved with a copy of a theft report filed by the possessor. Now, most of the time this is the case – but NOT in all states, and NOT on all policies. I urge you to call your agent BEFORE you drive a friend’s car or BEFORE you let a friend drive yours. Here are more answers and opinions from other FAQ Farmers: .
The insurance will only cover you if you are listed under their insurance with the car proprietor. .
I had to find this out in a hard way. They will, if the car holder has given you permission to drive. But if not, they won’t and I fell into the 2nd case. .
A good rule of thumb is that ‘insurance goes after the owners liabilities as far as coverage is worried. The policy in force on the vehicle involved in a loss will cover the harm to the vehicle itself and provide the liability boundaries if other parties are involved and are covered under the terms of that policy. This does assume that you had the proprietor’s PERMISSION to drive the vehicle involved. .
A lot also depends on the state. I’m in Texas – my policy specifically states that anybody that I permit to drive my vehicle is covered. At the same time, my policy will cover me in somebody else’s vehicle (with the same coverages that I carry), and also cover any fresh car for 30 days, to permit time for me to give them the car information. They tend to be a lot more liberal than most companies however. And I don’t carry collision anyway (my car is 15-years-old with 165k miles, not worth it), just theft, uninsured motorist and liability. .
I think this question could vary state to state. However, in WA, the insurance on the vehicle is primary, and if the drivers has insurance on another vehicle, or a broad form policy, theirs is secondary. Hope that helps, just my Two cents. .
The vehicle’s insurance is primary. If liability insurance on the vehicle is inadequate your own policy will come in as secondary and protect “YOU”. .
The driver’s insurance applies. Think of this: how can you lower your insurance premium: you, the driver are experienced, good driver (no accident, etc.) As soon as I add my daughter to my policy, it switches to inexperienced driver and not good driver category! SAME car….! .
The insurance goes after the Named Insureds Liabilities. That is the general rule. However, in some states, there is case law that will hold the holder’s and driver’s insurers coprimary for liability coverage IN SITUATION WHERE THE DRIVER IS USING THE Proprietor’S CAR AS A Makeshift SUBSTITUTE VEHICLE. Generally however, the driver’s policy is excess or secondary. A car is insured under comprehensive and collision insurance. The Named Insured Drivers are covered for Liability purposes. For the car to be insured in the case of an accident there are stipulations placed on who can drive the car relating to driver age, practice, driving record etc. this may vary from policy to policy. It all depends, Specifically As with most questions like this, it depends. Specifically: 1. Auto insurance goes after the named Insured Liabilities. So, if you’re driving your friend’s car and rear-end somebody, your friend’s liability insurance may take care of the other vehicle’s damages. Two. But what if your friend doesn’t carry insurance? Most likely your insurance will step in, but if Ohio requires vehicle owners to carry liability insurance, your carrier will most likely go after your friend for the money they paid to protect you because, by law, your friend should have paid for his own coverage. Trio. Does the car belong to a relative? More specifically, a relative in your household? This would likely result in your carrier denying coverage for you because you didn’t tell them a relative possesses a car that you’re driving. How often you drive the car could also affect your carrier’s decision. Four. But what if you have utter coverage, and you wreck your friend’s car that doesn’t have total coverage, and you don’t normally drive the car? Most likely, your carrier will step in and pay for the damages to your friend’s car. Your carrier is “excess,” but if no other first-party coverage exists, they’ll usually take care of it. See #Trio, however, because this wouldn’t apply to a relatives vehicle. insurance on the vehicle The kind of Insurance you are speaking of is a Named non-owners policy. If you are driving someones car that you borrow it needs to have insurance too. It is illegal to drive a car without insurance (for that car) The driver and possessor could get a ticket for the vehicle not being insured. Insurance Coverage In my practice as an auto insurance adjuster, the car carries the insurance. It would tie up the courts if settlements were partially on the vehicle and partially on insurance carried by the driver. If your car is involved in an accident while being driven a person who does not have your permission (as the Named Policy Holder) it is possible that your insurance company, after an in-depth investigation, including sworn statements by you, may attempt to subrogate against the unauthorized driver’s insurance. There is an excess clause in almost every auto policy. One particular Auto Insurance carrier is famous for attempting to deny coverage based on this excess clause. But, as far as I know EVERY company’s policy language includes this excess clause. In MOST cases, where only PD or MD (property harm or material harm) are involved, companies will agree to pro rata shares of coverage. The above-mentioned carrier tends to dig their high-heeled shoes in the sand, however, and prolongs the treating of such claims, which almost ALWAYS translates to a costlier claim process. most generally yes, your exact coverage will transfer over (if that vehicle is uninsured and there are MANYif’sin this ) to this uninsured vehicle, if it meets the criteria of ‘non-owned auto’ ‘improvised replacement vehicle’ etc……but NOT on a continueing bases…you can’t just insure one vehicle and drive a non insured one indefinately…understand? In the state of AZ, the insurance goes after the car. Your own coverage may extend to a vehicle that you are using with permission but only as secondary coverage. 1 Until this response is improved by an pro, this layman’s reaction will have to suffice. IF the driver is not named on the vehicle’s insurance, the terms of the insurance policy will dictate the treating of a liability claim for the accident in which the vehicle was involved. Normally, if the driver is: 1. Legally licensed to drive, andTwo. Has the permission of the holder of the vehicle to have been driving it at the time of the collision, then most policies will cover the “Permissive User.” If the vehicle you borrowed does not carry insurance and you do, your insurance becomes secondary to cover the claim. The holder’s insurance is primary. 1 Generally, across the insurance industry, if there is insurance on the vehicle involved in the collision, then that insurance is considered “primary,’ and is the policy which will provide very first coverage if coverage is extended to that driver. Then, IF the primary coverage is not adequate [not enough money], the driver’s insurance [considered secondary] will kick in for the balance owed on the liability claim, until its limit is reached. typically the insurance on the car is primary…..if that policy has collision coverage (am assuming there is liability coverage as that is required)…..the vehicle policy will repair that vehicle….if that vehicle doesNOThave collision coverage and driver has a policy with collision coverage then drivers policy will step in (2nd)……if neither policy has collision coverage and the driver of your vehicle is at fault……….no company is repairing that vehicle….. and yes as mentioned which ever policy pays for the ‘at fault’ accident those rates are enhancing……could be that both pay….yours for the other parties harm under liablity portion (if your vehicle is at fault) and drivers collision coverage (if your vehicle has no coll.cov) That is determined by the coverage clauses in both parties policy. The person whose insurance company pays will be the one whose rates increase. You usually are covered by the insurance for the car…if your friend drove your car and you had insurance on your car, they would be covered on your insurance, not their own Generally not. While you’re an insured driver, it’s your the policy covers only your liability. with permission from the holder, as long as there is no exclusion, and you are not a ‘regular’ driver, if you are using the vehicle with any regularity, you would need to be listed as an insured driver. No. The person who wields the car and has it insured will be responsible through their insurance. However, they can take you to puny claims court for the amount they had to pay and will win the case.

Yes, in some states that is the practice/permitted. Some states permit dual dipping meaning you can collect from both.

If you wreck someone else’s car and that person’s auto insurance covers the damages can the car holder still sue you for damages to their car after the accident?
Generally, if the vehicle is totalled as a result of the collision and the holder had collision coverage, the insurer will pay to the possessor the actual cash value of the vehicle as of the time of the loss. This usually equates to the value of a car of like kind and quality (including mileage, accessories and condition) as of the time of the collision. Because of its payment to its insured, the insurer becomes “subrogated” to the right of activity of its insured so that it can attempt to get its money back from you. You will have the same defenses against the insurer as you would have had against the other driver (for example, that the other driver was partially or entirely at fault for the collision). The subrogation activity that the insurer files often includes a claim for the insured’s deductible, but it may not. If it does, the insured cannot again make a claim for it; if it does not, the other driver can file suit against you for the deductible and other unreimbursed expenses that he/she may have incurred and that were proximately caused by the collision. Further, if the person is injured and if the injuries are of a type that permits him/her to file suit (usually defined in terms of seriousness), you can be sued for bodily injury damages. Your liability insurer has the obligation to defend you by providing an attorney at its expense and paying amounts for which you are found legally liable up to the boundaries available under the insurance policy. This is also true with regard to a property harm claim. If a judgment is entered against you and remains unpaid, there can be implications for your credit. Additionally, under the Financial Responsibility Law of many states, if a judgment from an auto collision remains unpaid for a stated period of time, your driver’s license and tags may be suspended until payment arrangements have been made. You may also be required to obtain and maintain a special form of high-risk liability insurance (sometimes referred to as an SR-22) for a period of time, but this depends upon State law.

Does the auto insurance company notify of an accident if a person was driving under another person’s name who is paying for the insurance?
If what you are asking is whether the insurer notifies the insured that the person was driving under his/her name when a collision occurs, the issue will most likely not arise until a very first or a third-party claim is made. At that time, the insurer will investigate, and will need to know the identities of the parties involved. If the person who was driving was not listed on the application/policy as an authorized user of the car, coverage will most likely be denied. This is because a premium was not paid to insure that person. Premium is based upon various risk factors private to the person/people to be insured, and this person’s risk factors would not have been able to be considered by the insurer, and therefore, no premium calculated or paid.
