Fight it! If the driveway was yours, then the other person had no business driving there. It does depend on what the reasons were. If you were parked more than 12 inches from the curb, then that is neglegent - it is law to be within 12 inches of the curb (never more). So find out why and keep all evidence. If you have to take that person to court, do so.

Why is there a need for house insurance?

Insurance companies are in the business in accepting your risk in exchange for an insurance premium. You have the risk of loss in loosing your home to fire, theft, windstorm, flood, lightning, etc and by purchasing a policy you are transferring this risk of loss to the insurance company who agrees to rebuild your home or give you the funds to do so. The liability coverage also transfers the risk of liability loss from yourself to the insurance company. If someone came to your home and was injured on your steps by falling and you were negligent by not securing the steps properly and putting sturdy handrails on the steps. The insurance company protects you by providing your defense costs plus it pays any damages to the claimant if you are found negligent and required to pay a judgement by the courts.
