Not usually, but it can be risky if they took your name and Insurance Info or Driver's License info. Normally, no damage, no problem. I wouldn't worry about it.
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.
Tell that driver exactly that. And see what type of arrangement, you can come up with. In most states, your license will be suspended for a year, so if its not your fault, explain to the driver, even with your information it will not tilt the scales in his favor with the insurance company, but surely damage your license.
It is illegal to leave the scene of an accident without providing full and accurate contact information. If the police are called, you need to wait for them to allow you to leave. Leaving can result in criminal charges. For a minor accident, with no injuries and no damage other than to the cars themselves, you can exchange information and agree with the other driver to file a police report.
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. Are you asking if weather conditons contributed to the accident (say wet/slick road) and they slid into another vehicle is the insurance on the car responsible for the damage to the vehicle they slid into? 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.
It is always the at-fault party's responsibility to pay for the damage they cause in an accident. Insurance is a transfer of risk from the driver to the insurance company, but if the coverage (collison) does not exist on the car, then the driver will be responsible to pay out of pocket for the damage.
