Do I need a police report to file an uninsured motorist claim?

For uninsured motorist claims, it's likely that your insurer would want a police report of the incident. What I don't know would be if it would be possible to still get a police report and redo the claim.

Coverage & Claims

If my car is determined a total loss in an accident, will my gap insurance cover the down payment used to secure my loan?

Gap insurance will only cover what is left on your loan after an insurance company pays out. Gap coverage is best purchased if you are going to have a difference between the loan amount and the value of the vehicle.

My 4-year-old daughter was in a car accident awhile back with a friend who has car insurance, am I able to still file a claim through her insurance?

You should still be able to open up a claim for any injuries or medical visits resulting from an accident. Specifically, in Tennessee, you have three years to make property damage claims and one year for injury claims.

Renters Insurance

Who is responsible for carrying sinkhole insurance? The renters or the landlord?

If your parents are renters, they are not responsible for the property — just their own liability and possessions — so it's not required to have sinkhole insurance since that's property-related. The landlord has to maintain safe living conditions for their property.

Should we keep our adult son's car insurance in our name?

Put simply, if your son is on your insurance policy, you can be held liable for the damages he causes. You can put him on his own policy, but the rates will very likely be higher.
