How can I get money for property damage to a motorcycle in Kentucky if I was hit by an uninsured driver?
I was driving my motorcycle in Kentucky when I was hit by an uninsured driver. The bike is a total loss. I only had liability coverage, so my insurance won't pay for property damage. How can I get the money from the other driver?

“Sorry to hear about your situation!
Since you don’t have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, the only way you’ll probably be able to recoup your losses is to sue the other driver. Ask your friends and family members if they know a trustworthy attorney, or search for an attorney who doesn’t collect money unless you win your case if you don’t have cash to pay upfront.
For the future, add uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage to your motorcycle policy. It won’t cost that much more per month and you can protect yourself from uninsured drivers.”

If my friend was in an accident involving my car, do I have to talk to my insurance representatives at GEICO?
My friend caused an accident and the person he hit contacted my insurance since the car is registered in my name. I really don't know what to say to them since I wasn't there. Do I have to talk to them or can they just deal with it without me?
