If you have collision coverage on your vehicle you can collect from your insurance company for the damages. You will not have to pay the deductible if you were determined by the insurance company to not be At Fault for the accident. They then go after the other insurance company to get the money they paid you back. If you do not carry collision coverage then you need to file with other insurance company, they will then decide who was at fault for the accident if their party was at fault they then pay you for the damages to your vehicle.

Who pays the deductible when the other person is at fault?

There is not deductible with liability insurance coverage. Liability pays the party who is not fault for their damages without a deductible. If you were at fault collision would pay for damages to your vehicle but you will have a deductible of whatever you selected when you purchased the insurance policy.

Should you have uninsured motorist property damage coverage?

Absolutely. If someone hits you without insurance this coverage will pay to fix your vehicle with a small deductible. The company will then pursue the at fault party until all the losses are recovered and then send you back your deductible. Usually they have to collect payments for years to collect all the damages. If you don't have UMPD coverage you will have to do that yourself. UM is well worth the premium. As a matter of full disclosure, I own and operate a small Independent Insurance Agency and have for the part 22 years. Before that I worked as an agent for a direct writer insurance company.
