You are walking back to your car and you notice a huge scratch with a matching dent. What to do? First, don’t panic; there are some things you should do before leaving the spot you were parked.
Your insurance company may consider the absent driver as uninsured. There are different penalties for hit and run accidents depending on your state- but in some cases it is considered a felony.
Will insurance pay if someone hits my car while it is parked?
It depends on your coverage. Collision coverage and uninsured motorist property damage coverage are two types that could help cover damage, but you may still have to pay a deductible first.
Although this could potentially be a stressful situation, having certain coverage options can help. Call us to see what coverages are available in your area. Visit the allstate blog for more information.
