Who is at fault if I opened my car door and it was hit by another driver?

In situations where a car door is opened and subsequently hit, fault is generally with the person who opened the door. There are scenarios where both drivers may share liability and each situation is different, so it's difficult to say with any certainty where fault lies.

What do I do if an uninsured driver opens their door into mine and leaves a dent?

If you want the dent repaired and the other driver doesn't have insurance then you can ask him to pay you out of pocket for the damage. If not, you'll need to file a claim with your insurance provider.

What coverage do I need if a deer runs into my car?

Animals cause all sorts of damage to vehicles, and not always because someone hits them with their car. Luckily, insurance companies don't discriminate over you hitting an animal or an animal hitting your car.
