Yes, I realize this is bad, but we're trying to save money to get insurance and pay registration fees. Now with my car not running that poses a bigger set back. Bottom line is my un-licensed boyfriend stopped at a red light and another driver rear-ended him because he assumed my boyfriend would run the light. My question is, since the other driver does have insurance, am I still able to have my car repaired without having to pay myself, or will the other driver's insurance cover it since the other driver was at fault? Please only lawyers who are familiar with California laws respond. Thank you in advance for any response.**Additionally, there was no police report filed, the other driver wanted to settle without insurance being involved. Once he found out I didn't have insurance, he basically told me have a nice life and there's nothing I can do. Is there any truth to that? I realize my car shouldn't have been on the road, but I shouldn't have to pay for his mistake, right?
