A: Liability will rest with the at-fault driver. That driver's insurance (assuming he has it) should cover your damages. If he/she does not have insurance, then your uninsured motorist policy should cover your damages. Whether your husband was an excluded driver could complicate a claim for uninsured motorist coverage. Regardless of all this, yes, your husband could be cited for driving without a license.
