Yes, Of course you have to pay if you are At Fault. If take a gun and you shoot somebody on private property you will also have to pay for that? " Yes" . We are always responsible for damage we cause to another, whether accidental or intentional, on private property or public property.

That depends on what your property damage limit is. Typically, you have a per accident limit for property damage, usually around $10,000 or more. What this means that the insurance company will pay up to $10,000 in property damage for your car if you have full coverage and the cost for the pole. Should the combined total exceed $10,000 you may have to pay some of the excess yourself.

Your own liability insurance will never pay for the damage to your property or for your medical expenses. Your collision insurance pays for damage to your property, if it is your fault.

Your liability insurance will pay for the damage to someone else's property or for someone else's medical expenses, if it is your fault. Someone else's liability insurance will pay for the damage to your property or for your medical expenses, if it is their fault.

Will an insured driver liability cover intentional damages to uninsured car that is parked?

Yes, as long as the car is parked on private property. Cars stored on private property and not "in service" are the same as any other property, If the insured runs into your parked car our your house the insurance will pay. That's not quite correct. If the damage was intentional, meaning that the driver of the insured car deliberately struck the uninsured parked car, then the at fault driver's insurance will NOT pay because of a clause in the policy that excludes coverage for 'intentional acts' like criminal activity (which is what this is). So the parked car's owner would have to pursue a civil case against the at fault driver and try to collect against their personal assets.
