If an uninsured car crashes into a home, can the homeowner make a claim using the uninsured motorist coverage on their auto policy?

By using uninsured motorist coverage, the homeowner may be able to avoid a higher deductible on their home policy. Is this doable?

Unfortunately, no, the homeowner will have to file a claim with their home insurance company.
Uninsured motorist coverage is designed to cover damage to their car, not their home. To fix the property damage, they’ll have to pay that higher deductible on their home policy.
