If you are on good footing and the insurance company is in the wrong, then you will probably need to open an...Read more »

A Texas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. From the standpoint of insurance, your employer should have a commercial policy in effect for the vehicle.

Your auto policy probably covers damage to the vehicle itself (collision or comprehensive coverage) and damage that you cause to other people’s property (liability/property damage coverage). While your home policy covers damage to the home itself and may cover injuries to...Read more »

1. Because Texas is a community property state, when an insured is/was married, it can cause problems for a beneficiary later on because the surviving spouse can claim that s/he is entitled to some of the policy payout.
2. If you don't pay the premiums, the policy will simply lapse.

You need to actually file a lawsuit against the proper defendant (likely the other driver and his/her employer, if appropriate) BEFORE the statute of limitation (SOL) runs. Filing an insurance claim does nothing to stop the SOL. If the SOL passes and you did not file a lawsuit, the insurance...Read more »

Her insurance company can't "charge" you at all, but they can sue you for the damages they had to pay, whatever that is. Typically, if the cost to repair the damages are more than the car is worth, they pay the value of the car. I suggest you get a release in exchange for your...Read more »
