A: A Colorado attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a general matter in most places, if you have comprehensive coverage, that could cover damage to your car. But even with that, there is usually a deductible that has to be paid out of pocket first. Being that your vehicle was at fault, premiums could go up. That's up to your carrier, your driving record, and the terms of the policy. Good luck
