Coverage & Claims

We had an accident while towing someone else's car. Whose insurance pays for the damage?

Whose company pays for the towing damage will be very specific to which insurer you have a policy with. Many companies will not cover any type of towing equipment without a special endorsement.

Car Insurance Costs

How does the price of a non-owners policy compare to liability insurance?

A non-owners policy gives provides liability coverage so that they can drive a non-owned vehicle. As such, it will be much cheaper because there is no specific vehicle to insure.

Coverage & Claims

Is it illegal to carry liability insurance rather than full coverage on a financed vehicle?

Though it's not illegal, you will be violating terms of your loan if you change the breadth of your coverage in favor of liability-only. Your lienholder will then force-place collateral protection insurance to your monthly payments.

Coverage & Claims

Should I file a liability claim if I caused $650 in damage to the other car?

We have a handy guide on how to determine whether or not to file a claim here. For that amount of damage, it's probably wise to forgo the claim and pay for the damage out-of-pocket. If you go through insurance, you would be classified as at-fault in this incident and you can expect your premium to increase over a period of three years.

I canceled my insurance after two weeks. Am I owed a refund?

You should be able to get your payment back, providing that you check with your insurance company to see if there are any fee disclosures. I would contact them and see what they can do to rectify the situation. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

What kind of insurance do I need if I'm renting out my property?

What kind of insurance you need depends on a few factors of your rental. For insurance, a million in liability may sound like a lot but for most businesses, this is just a starting point because the risk of lawsuits and other exposures are so much higher.

Coverage & Claims

I have liability and uninsured motorist coverage. Can I file a claim on a hit and run accident?

Yes, your uninsured motorist coverage would include coverage for UMPD (uninsured motorist property damage). Your deductible typically applies.

Coverage & Claims

Can an insurance company recant liability and ask for a refund one month after paying me for damages to my vehicle?

I have not heard of a claim decision being reversed and asking for the claims payout money back. They should be providing you with evidence of why they are refusing to pay the claim — if you haven't asked for this already, you should demand it.

Renters Insurance

Does the unit I want to rent need to be a legally registered residence in order for me to get renters insurance coverage?

Most likely, an insurance company is going to want the address to be verifiable before they offer coverage. If the unit doesn't have an address, you should list the main residence's address on your renters insurance and the same rules would likely apply.

Coverage & Claims

Will a non-owners policy cover medical for the person I hit after an accident?

A non-owner's policy will have a signed endorsement on it stating the insurer will not cover any claim that results from a vehicle the named insured owns or is registered to. Many will also state if it is part of the household, they will not cover it.

Eligibility

Do I need liability car insurance at the time of an accident?

Coverage offered to unlisted drivers varies from policy to policy. You would have to check with the vehicle owner's insurance policy.
