This is often a means for the insurance company to cash in on both sides of the claim.

In the case of one State or Province having one insurance company this is often done to lodge claims quicker and dual end the cost to two drivers or two insured parties.

Car is at fault but they have no insurance?
I can tell you what happens in the State Of Alabama… Where we have a MANDATORY insurance law… To “protect” the law obiding, insurance carrying citizens from suffering a loss due to an uninsured motorist…..
Even however we have a LAW, it is a paper tiger..
I have dialed numbers until my fingers are blistered. I have talked on the phone until my ears are sore and my mouth hurts. In the end, I have been transferred, given wrong numbers and told to contact my congressman to “strengthen” our mandatory insurance law..
I did find out one thing tho’, we have a form called an SR-13 that can be downloaded from the Alabama Dept. Of Public Safety website. Even however this has nothing to do with the law or disturbance of it, it is tied to an old law that protects people from suffering a loss in the event of an accident with someone who has no insurance. Basically, their license will be suspended from anywhere inbetween Two and Ten years. Depending on the circumstance. If you are in Alabama, call the Dept. Of Public Safety and ask about this form or go to the website… https://www.dps.state.al.us/ and go after the quick links.. If you’re not, contact the same department in your state and embark there. Hope this helps.

Car was wrecked no insurance still owe on loan does bank make you pay for fixing car on top of loan?
I am not a lawyer but any car loan I have ever signed, the following are true. The car is the collateral for the loan. The loan company a.ka.,the bank, is the holder of the car and holder of the title not you. I also make the promise that I will maintain what we call collision (accident loss) and comprehensive (theft, vandalism, weather etc. loss) which protects the bank from loss by insuring the vehicle is paid for in the event of a loss. The State mandates I carry my liability coverage. So I gather in some parts of the country this would be called total coverage. The other significant issue is because the car is in fact wielded by the loan company they are listed on the insurance document as the 1rst loss payee. So if in fact you are insured the loan company will be paid very first. You promised to pay the loan company x dollars when you signed the note. Nothing will relieve from paying that amound plus accrued interest. If the settlement is not enough to cover the outstanding loan balance then you owe the remainder. If you cancelled your insurance or let it lapse for non-payment then you are already in default on the loan just has if you had missed payments. Per the terms you signed the loan company can request instantaneous payment for the entire outstanding balance on the loan and begin whatever processes it needs to collect that money including its legal fees to collect the money. All of this will affect your future insurance rates and your credit score. In most but not all states things like credit rating, insurance spectacle (cancellations, non payment, length of continuous insurance etc) will affect any insurance premium or loan interest in the future. You need to be upfront with everyone, take your financial hits and stir on. It will only get worse, You see a lot of this issue. The lesson here is don’t by more care than you can afford and insurance payments are every bit as significant as your car payment. They are not an option. Never buy a car that puts you under water. That is you owe more than the car is worth. Generally this means putting down some kind of reasonable downpayment (my private guideline is at least 30% of the purchase price of then vehicle) , never finance a fresh car for more than Four years or used car for more than Trio years unless it’s a vehicle that holds value utterly well like a fresh Mercedes. If you the find the payments plus the insurance are exceeding your budget, time to sell it and buy something with in your budget before trouble hits. Just because someone offers you a car loan with a 1000 down and finance the rest, doesn’t mean you should take it. In fact you should run. This fellow cares more about his commission than your financial well being. Unlike buying a house which is usually an appreciating asset, a car is a depreciating asset or expense.
