Will an insurance company tell me if someone has paid a loan off?

If I hit an uninsured driver, can he go after me for damages?
Georgia isn't a "No-Pay No-Play" state, so if the insured driver is considered to be at-fault for the crash then the not at-fault party's insurance status does not have a bearing on any claims payout. Long story short, they can claim their vehicle damage and injuries if the other driver is at-fault.
