How do I proceed if I was rear-ended by a college student without insurance? 4 Answers as of April 29, 2011I was on my way home from work when I was rear ended by a college student who was texting and driving. She damaged the trunk of my car, and my car is misaligned. She said she is no longer on her parents insurance since she moved out, but I think I can still go after them. Is this the case, or am I out of luck?

It would depend if the parents owned the car. If the car was in her name only and not in the name of her parents, then they are not liable. If the car is in her parents name, they are responsible for insuring the car.
