Probably not. If the other driver doesn't have any damage and didn't take any information from you then you are left with the damage to your car and you can decide to live with that or make a claim on your own insurance policy for that damage, if you have collision coverage. If you damage is minor I would probably not make a claim on your policy.

How is the driver uninsured? If he had permission from the insured vehicle owner to drive? There are policy exclusion that apply but most generally that person is considered as an insured driver. I will assume (for the purpose of answering your question) by uninsured driver you mean they have no policy of their own.

Yes, probably. Insurance stays with the car. If you could provide more detailed information regarding the driver, and facts of loss, I could be of more assistance to you.
