Do I have to pay for towing if a car hits me?

If someone hits me, do I have to pay for the tow? I have liability insurance but I don't have the additional towing and labor coverage.

“Because you weren’t at fault, you don’t have to pay for the tow.
Either the other driver’s car insurance will pay for the tow or they’ll reimburse you after you pay for it.
For peace of mind, you may want to consider adding towing and labor coverage to your policy in the future.”
