Can I buy my dad a car but put the insurance policy under his name?
I'm 19 and I want to buy my dad a car since I have better credit than he does. But I want the car insurance policy to be under his name since his premium will be lower. Is this doable?

If your father is going to be the primary driver and registered owner of the vehicle, this is possible. Be sure that his name is on the title and you’re just the one who’s making payments on the car.

Why won't my auto insurance cover my husband's injuries?
"My husband and I got into an accident, but I was declared not at fault. My insurance initially said they would cover my medical bills and some of his since he was a passenger. Now that it's time to cover our expenses, they are saying they're only going to cover mine. We don't have health insurance right now and he has his own car insurance. Is there any way to get his bills covered?"
