Do you need uninsured mortorist coverage if you have health insurance?

Well, health insurance won't repair your car will Uninsured Motorist will. Your health insurance won't pay for your friends, relatives, or children's friends who happen to be in your car when you have an accident with an uninsured motorist when they don't have health insurance. If they are injured and have no health insurance they will look to you for payment of their injuries. The cost for U.M. coverage is relatively small for the coverage that you get. Also, if someone hits you and has no insurance the Uninsured Motorists part of your policy will act as if the person had the required insurance that they should have in paying for your losses. After your losses are paid they will go after the other party to recover the costs paid that they should have paid. The costs to collect these funds are paid by your company and once they collect these funds even your deductible will be recovered and sent back to you. The legal costs to collect these costs could be substantial.

What can you do if an uninsured driver hit your car on private property and no report was made?

assuming you are insured, you still file a claim with your company (again assuming you have collision coverage on your vehicle) they will repair your car under that coverage and attempt to collect or subrogate the at fault party.....if you are uninsured some states (mine-Missouri) you can file a state report ask for an adm. hearing to determine fault for the loss and get a judgment for that loss........beware however if you are uninsured and your state requires insurance (don't they all?) you're busted too......

What is the typical auto insurance?

"Typical auto insurance" is probably a misnomer. Most states require that certain levels and types of auto insurance maintained, but this is a matter of state law. There are also optional coverages that an auto owner may purchase. The primary types of auto insurance include the following: 1. Collision coverage: this pays for the physical repair to your own vehicle as a result of a collision either with another car or some other object. 2. Liability coverage: this pays for the damages for which you may be legally liable if the person or property of another is damaged by your negligence in operating a vehicle. If you or your insurer contest your liability, this coverage provides an attorney to defend you at its own cost. 3. Personal Injury Protection: this pays a portion of your own medical bills and lost wages if you are injured in a collision, even if it was your fault. In some states, it is known as "no-fault coverage". 4. Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage: uninsured motorist coverage pays compensation to you if you are injured by the negligent operation of a vehicle by another and that person has no liability coverage (which would otherwise compensate you). Underinsured motorist coverage is triggered if their liability coverage is in an amount less than the "value" of your injury. Under certain circumstances (mainly, if you get your insurer's consent), you can accept the full liability limits of the at-fault driver, and collect the balance of the "value" of your injury from your own underinsured motorist coverage. The maximum amount that you can collect in uninsured/underinsured motorist benefits is the amount of coverage that you have purchased and for which you have paid a premium.
