Can you securely give your car having comprehensive and collision coverage to your friend who has a drivers license but no insurance?
If you’re asking if your friend can simply borrow your car from time to time, and you carry total coverage and liability on the car, then yes, you should be okay. Car insurance goes after the vehicle, so even if your friend has his own coverage and had an accident while driving your car, your insurance would still be primary. If, however, you’re talking about permitting your friend to drive the car all the time, on a daily and/or regular basis, you could face problems if you don’t let your insurance carrier know that your friend is using the car all the time. This is because the premiums you pay are based on you as a driver, not your friend.

Should you report a hit and run to your insurer if you have no collision coverage?
Well, they will just formally deny the claim because there is no collision coverage on the policy, but I would anyway, just in case, (believe me I’ve seen these), two months down the road, the hit and runner, files a claim that you hit their parked car and left, and the damages could match up. Just to protect yourself I’d file it, and with the police as well.

Does an automobile with a lien holder have to have utter auto insurance coverage?
Obviously all cars/drivers need to have some legal minimum insurance, generally only liability (essentially protecting others bod/property). Not collision, which protects your own property. Without the later, wreck it you lose it..
Because a car has a lien, which means it is pledged as security for a loan, does NOT mean it needs to have more insurance in itself. .
However, virtually any lender will require you to have insurance adequate to cover the loss of the asset you have pledged…since if you wreck it he doesn’t want to own, or attempt to collect what is owed, against a wrecked worthless car.
In the event of an automobile accident may your auto insurance coverage be denied if it is exposed that you have incorrect individual information within your current policy ie address ie violations?

That means they will pay you what the car was worth before the wreck. At that point the insurance company possesses the wreck, not you. You have nothing left to insure, therefore.
What is Auto collision insurance?
Collision coverage pays to repair or substitute your vehicle if you are determined to be ‘at-fault’ (you caused the accident). Typically, a deductible (amount you pay out of pocket) applies to this type of coverage. The most common deductibles are $500 to $1000, but can be lower or higher. Comprehensive (also known as “Other Than Collision”) coverage is usually included on policies with Collision coverage. It covers theft, vandalism, flooding, fire, animal harm, glass harm (not caused by a collision) and severe weather harm (hail, wind, tornado, hurricane, etc). If a vehicle is financed, both of these coverages are considered mandatory to protect the lender. Collision claims will usually cause your insurance rate to increase at your next renewal. Most insurers don’t penalize you for Comprehensive claims because they weren’t caused by your negligence.

Do you truly need ununderinsured motorist coverage if your collision coverage covers the car harm and separate medical insurance covers injury treatment?
Underinsured motorist coverage protects YOU against the other driver not having enough coverage to treat your losses. Say they are at fault and carry 15/30/Ten (the minimum in most states, but even 25/50/20 if you want) – that means any one person they injure is covered for 15K max…to a total of 30K for all injured people – so if you had Trio people in the car the max payout would be 30K – with no one getting more than 15K. Your medical damages are 35K – actually a fairly puny amount considering todays costs. He is underinsured…you only get 15…pay the other 20. Your passengers, each of whom had say 25K of medical…they each look to you for the rest too (which because of the 30K max…which you used 15K of, is actually another 35K!). As to your car….he’s responsible for at fault damages to property…so if he only carries 10K property harm…and your car is worth 15…commence reaching for the checkbook. And if he shoved you into someones else’s car, or living room…welll…. The weird thing is without underinsured coverage…presuming your carrying something like 100/300 – your insuring the worthless slug for much more than he is providing for you. Even stranger…if he had no insurance….you would be covered up to your maximums anyway. It is a very inexpensive add on so i can’t see why it would be a place to skimp….just increase your deductible to truly save something.

But generally yes, if the at-fault driver is uninsured, you can make a claim against your uninsured motorist policy. You’ll have to prove the other driver had no insurance.

What kind of customer would want collision coverage for his or her auto insurance?
Someone worried about harm to his or her own car. This is because collision coverage pays the cost of repair to one’s own car, and to that extent, it is referred to as “first-party coverage”. The payment made by the insurer is generally subject to a deductible, which is the dollar amount that the insured has agreed to pay toward the cost of repair. When a vehicle is financed or leased, the lender or the lessor will invariably require the customer to maintain collision coverage on the vehicle so as to preserve the value of the collateral. If the customer does not demonstrate that he/she/it has, there is generally a process by which the lender/lessor can obtain “forced-placed” coverage and have the premium added to the customer’s loan/lease account.

Automobile liability insurance coverage is one of several types of autobile coverage. It is required by the law of most US jurisdictions in order to register a vehicle for operation on public highways. It is often also required to be shown as a condition of obtaining a driver’s license. Automobile liability insurance is intended to cover the negligent acts or omissions of a driver in the operation of the covered motor vehicle. Depending upon whether it is property harm liability coverage, bodily injury liability coverage, or both, it generally covers the correlating kind of harm sustained by the person who was not at fault.

The insurer pays the attorney, but also has the right to control the defense, including by lodging the claim.
