How would an insurance claim affect your future rates in a hit and run accident that was not your fault?
According to my experience, it should not affect your insurance
rates if you were not at fault. I was involved in a hit-and-run
myself, and at the time I was too nervous to jot down the correct
license plate. I filed the report anyways though.
Of course, due to the severity of the accident and whether or not you were injured, that would determine how much money your insurer need to shell out. However, as long as it's not your fault, they have no reason to increase your rates.

Will your comprehensive auto insurance cover your car if you were not at fault in the accident but other drivers insurance denies claim?
Motor insurance policies have a scale of reduced premiums where there has been no claim under the policy. This is why the reduction in premium is called a "No Claim Bonus".

Can a insurance company raise your premiums for a minor accident that was not your fault and no claim made. Just informed insurance company because i thought that was the right thing to do?
Yes, some insurers have rules that even if there was an accident with no payout or no claim made, your premiums will be affected. So once you report the incident to your insurer, they will consider it a claim against your future premiums. However, there are some companies out there that will not hold the incident against you, so would recommend you shop around for the best rate based on your situation.
