- No-fault insurance means it can’t be my fault.
No fault insurance does not mean that if you caused an accident you’re not responsible. This part of your insurance policy allows all parties to get payment for their immediate medical needs while the insurance companies of all parties are deciding who is going to pay.
Call your insurance agent to find out what no-fault insurance means in the state you live in. Most policies cover medical expenses (up to specific limits) and lost wages (for a specific amount of time) no matter who is at fault in an accident.
- My friend borrowed my car, so she has to pay for the damages.
If you let someone else drive your car, and that person is involved in an accident, your insurance policy – not hers – will cover the damages.
Insurance follows the car, not the driver.
- My laptop was stolen out of my car, but I have great auto insurance, so it’s covered.
Most car insurance policies don’t cover this kind of personal property. Your laptop or other stolen items might be covered by your homeowner’s policy, but your deductible will apply.
