“Vermont requires that you carry $10,000 in combined uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage property damage.
This coverage pays for damage to your vehicle and other property caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver. In VT, this coverage has a $150 deductible, but the deductible does not apply if you have collision coverage on the policy.
Because this type of insurance only covers damages to your vehicle when the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured, you should also consider maintaining collision coverage on your policy. “

Does it matter to insurance companies if a stolen car's driver is caught or not?
I was hit by a driver who had stolen a car. I have liability and uninsured motorist, and my insurance company said they would cover the accident if the driver was uninsured. I need to get a rental car soon. Is it necessary for them to actually catch the driver? Or can my claim proceed without it?
