If I'm hit my a driver with the same insurance company as mine, do I file the claim under my policy or the other driver's?

Filing the claim on your policy means you are going to have to pay your collision deductible and could possibly impact your rate. Personally, I would not agree to do that.

Which insurance companies will insure you with a DUI?

I would venture to say that most companies will insure drivers with DUIs, but unfortunately your eligibility will vary based on multiple factors like driving history and credit. Your best bet is to shop around with as many companies as possible to find the carrier that will insure you at the best rate.

General Insurance

Can I insure multiple vehicles with different carriers?

Each company has different underwriting requirements so you should keep shopping to find one that will allow for your situation. It's best to ask carriers about this before starting a quote so you avoid wasting time with a company that will not insure your one car.
