A: Assuming you reported this to the local police and your insurance company, if your collision insurance does not cover this incident for some reason, you can file a property damage claim. You would need to either repair the damage and have a paid bill or have an estimate of the cost of the repair.

A: If you handle it as a first-party claim through your own collision coverage, your carrier could recover the money from the other driver's carrier.
