I didn’t know that was something you could get I’m going to have to look into that.
It might be worth it to talk to a lawyer, you might be able to sue him for the damages to your car.
I’ve never been in this situation so I’m not really sure.

You should have kicked his ass

My state requires uninsured motorist coverage at a bare minimum level. Or you sue the driver that hit you for damages. Get a lawyer. I needed one for mine below:

I was hit at a gapers block on the highway on a merge ramp while someone with a revoked license and no insurance stole his father's then 4-5 year old car, didn't see the traffic was slow because of the loud music through his earbuds and was distracted, so he hit me at 55mph attempting to merge while traffic was crawling so badly I couldn't merge either.
....there was a 7 car pileup a mile down the highway because SOMEONE just spent the night in the ER sobering up, was released and drank a bottle of Vodka as soon as he was out of the ER. Which then caused my accident. I learned this while waiting for the CT scanner to see how bad my neck was.

I had my foot on the break when the collision happened. I left 20 feet of rubber skid marks and almost hit a brick retaining wall, the seat broke on impact and threw me into my back seat, and I broke my neck and shoulder on impact.

Needed 3 surgeries to fix. One just cuts off half of the clavicle or collar bone, the other 2 were major neurosurgery right up against the spinal cord. I also have post traumatic arthritis in my shoulder for my dominant arm.

Of course the kid that hit me was never heard from again after that. My insurance covered me But is having a heck of a time getting the kid to cough up payment.

I had uninsured motorist but still had to use my own collision coverage for most of the damage. Next August or so that'll drop.

why would you at all be paying. the insurance companies typically are there so other drivers are insured if you hit them and if the hitter doesnt have insurance they are still in the wrong and your insurance still would make them pay.
atleast for me thats how having insurance works(in my state or company or personal situation).

I was hit by an uninsured driver and had to use my own collision coverage for being rear-ended! Even WITH uninsured motorist coverage!
