Question

The driver of the at-fault vehicle claims the car was stolen

My car got hit by another car that the owner claimed was stolen. Though the guy that was driving was the boyfriend of the lady who actually owned the car, the lady, however, is claiming the man stole the car and her insurance isn't covering the damage to my car.

If she is claiming the car was stolen, a police report needs to be filed. Technically, the insurance company of the owner isn't responsible for the damages if the car was stolen. The driver of the car is responsible. You need to seek legal advice for your damages. Good luck and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
