Auto Insurance Question from North, South Carolina
Answer given on July 12, 2019
If your son was only a passenger in the other person's car, there is no liability responsibility for your son to others either in the same car or the other car. If your insurance provides medical insurance coverage, then it will pay up to that limit. If the person driving the car that your son was in, and caused the accident, their liability insurance should pay for his injuries, up to the "per person" limit.
Your auto insurance may also cover "uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage". Again, if the accident was caused by the driver of the car your son was in, or even the other car if they didn't have enough insurance, then your uninsured/underinsured coverage should pay something. These are not items that should affect your automoble insurance rates. Contact your insurance agent or insurance company to file a claim. If there is a police report provide that report number to assist the insurance company in settling the claim. It may not pay for all injuries, but it will certainly help.
