This is a very good question. About 10 years ago I was with a friend and he was driving and we were backing out of a convenience store parking lot when he backed into a 1994 Toyota Supra with his new pickup. The pickup's bumper was pretty solid so it sustained no damage but the Toyota's door was dented badly. The gentleman who came out of the store was very angry and demanded compensation for the damage. My friend agreed and suggested we call the police for a report to file the insurance claim but the gentleman became very aprehensive about that because he didn't have any insurance. After he talked to his friend for a few minutes, he told us to leave.

Who owns the uninsured car? It will depend on your state, but if you were driving a car you own but did not insure you may have to pay for the repairs yourself - and in some states, if you have no insurance on the car you're driving, you may get to repair the other guy's car too even if it was his fault. If it was his fault, some states will require him or his insurance if he has it, to fix your car.

Well, there are two responses to this question - If your car was damaged in a hit-and-run accident and you have no idea who caused the damage and your car was uninsured, unfortunately, you are stuck paying for the repairs to your car. However, if your car was insured, simply pick up the phone and call your insurance agent and file a claim against your insurance policy. In essence, you are suing yourself, but your car will get fixed, minus the deductible of course.

If you don't have any auto insurance - then you can be sued for a lot of money by both the rental car company and the person you hit.

Pay the owner of the car you hit and accept responsibility for your poor driving, and stop trying to blame this on how the vehicle you hit was parked. It is your fault plain and simple.
