If an uninsured driver hits me with an insured car, will their insurance still cover the damages?

You should still file the claim. Unless the driver is excluded from the policy, the insurance company will still likely honor your claim against the insurance.

I have liability coverage only and I hit a highway median. Am I covered for any damages?

Liability insurance only covers damages you directly cause. It never covers your own property.

My car was hit while parked outside my apartment complex. I have no witnesses but the truck parked next to mine looks like it did it. What can I do?

You can certainly open up a claim with your insurance company and see what they say. Even if it’s not totally clear this truck hit your car because there were no witnesses, they may be able to advise on next steps for what could be considered a hit-and-run.

If my policy ended before they sent me a check for a totaled vehicle, do I still need to pay for another policy?

If you no longer have the vehicle and you don't intend on insuring a new vehicle with the same company, you should be able to back date cancel it to the day after the accident. Your best bet is to call your carrier’s customer service line and see what they can do for you.

What's the average rate increase for a collision claim?
