“This type of claim should be filed under the girlfriend’s auto insurance. In this instance, she would need comprehensive coverage.
Depending on the extent of the damage and the deductible amount, it may be better for her to pay for the damages out of pocket.
If you file a claim through the homeowners policy, it would likely be denied.”
