If someone hits your car and drives off, you should gather as much evidence as possible, by photographing the scene, taking detailed notes, and speaking to bystanders to see if anyone got a license plate number or description of the offender’s car. You also need to submit a police report and notify your insurance company.
In order to file an insurance claim, you will need uninsured motorist property damage coverage or collision coverage. If you have neither, you are responsible for the repair costs yourself.
