Each person's insurance should cover their own vehicle. It's part of un and under insured driver coverage. It protects you against a case just like this. Now if the person doesn't have it then that is their own fault and they will have to pay for the damages out of their own pocket. The individual insurance companys should repair the vehicles and then they will turn around and draw a lawsuit against the drunk-driver for the cost of all the damages. Most states will put all blame on the drunk driver, but it is possible that your state might be different. The police report will be your best sourc of that information.

If your car is illegally parked and has been hit by another car who pays for damages?

Generally speaking, the driver in motion is considered to be at fault when a parked car is hit, even if the car was parked illegally. The exception to this would be if the car was parked in a dangerous, hard-to-see location and the driver in motion could not have reasonably avoided hitting it. For example, if a car is parked on a sharp curve in the travel lane of a narrow road, and the driver of a car driving around the curve at the speed limit would not be able to see the parked car until too close to it to avoid a collision, then the driver might not be liable for damage to the parked car, and indeed the driver who parked the car might be liable for damage to the car that hit it.

If your parked car was hit in the rear and the person who hit you has no license or insurance who is responsible for the damage to your vehicle and the medical bills for any injuries?

Well the person that hit you is not responsible enough to drive with insurance, if someone was in your parked car, you would still be responsible,its your car after all. The person that hit your car would be liable and you would have to go after them legally. If the uninsured driver in fact gets injured he will be responsible for himself, insurance companies are not in the business of paying people who drive illegally.

It's difficult to imagine circumstances in which the owner of the parked car could be considered to be at fault. Almost always, the driver of the moving car will be found liable. Even if the car was not parked properly, the driver of the other car generally will have had the "last clear chance" to avoid hitting it.

Hopefully you have insurance. Call the police, if you weren't driving the vehicle at the time of impact, then it shouldn't matter that you don't have a license.
