An uninsured motorist endorsement is an added insurance policy for motorists. It covers injuries that have resulted from a collision by an uninsured driver.

The California Collision Deductible Waiver (CDW) is coverage which waives your collision deductible if you are hit by a negligent uninsured motorist. The CDW option with a personal auto insurance policy in California pays your collision deductible when you carry collision coverage on a vehicle that is damaged by an uninsured or hit-and-run motorist who is at fault. Coverage typically applies only when there is actual physical contact and when you can identify the uninsured driver or vehicle. Some insurance companies will not even talk about the coverage even if it is included in your policy until you bring it to their attention.
Yes. The initial trigger for entitlement to uninsured motorist benefits is involvement and injury in a motor vehicle collision with an uninsured motorist. According to state law, there may be other requirements as well (such as the existence of a permanent injury or significant scarring), but lack of insurance by the adverse party is the first requirement. Note also that, again depending upon state law, if you as the injured party negligently caused or contributed to the collision, your recovery may be reduced accordingly.
Uninsured motorist property damage coverage is usually not required and sometimes is not offered at all in a particular state. If it is offered in your state you should consider purchasing it. One accident with an uninsured driver can leave you with significant bills to cover your property damage.

If you have uninsured motorist coverage let your insurance company settle with you then recover from the motorist in court. If you don't you will have to take the motorist to court yourself. Your insurance company is far better equipped for this than you are.

Uninsured motoristUninsured Motorist coverage (which is required coverage in many states) covers injuries that the driver and occupants of a car sustain when the at-fault vehicle was not insured for liability coverage. UM does not cover the physical damage to the vehicle. UMPD (uninsured motorist property damage), where available, covers that physical damage. UMPD is essentially similar to collision coverage, which is first party insurance that pays regardless of fault, subject to a deductible.Uninsured motorist coverage pays essentially the same type of benefits (such as for pain and suffering) as the liability insurance of the other party would pay if the at-fault party had liability insurance. Additionally, the uninsured motorist insurer will generally evaluate a claimant's injuries in much the same way as a liability insurer would, and the claimant is subject to a reduction in damages for contributory or comparative negligence according to the law of the jurisdiction.
If your "full" coverage includes Collision coverage then the answer is yes, or if you don't but do have Uninsured Motorist Property Damage coverage then the answer is also yes. I think some states have the UMPD listed seperately on the policy even if you have Collision coverage.
If you have automobile insurance with an uninsured motorist property damage endorsement it covers damage to your car caused by an uninsured motorist. If you have collision coverage the endorsement will pay your deductible. If you don't have collision coverage the endorsement will pay for damages up to a set amount, typically $3500. Before it will pay it has to be determined that the other party was at fault and that they have no insurance. In the case of a hit and run driver it wouldn't pay because it would not be possible to determine whether or not they had insurance.
Options available with auto insurance are Liability, Medical coverage, Collision and comprehensive coverage, and Uninsured motorist coverage.SK(APEX)
