1. You had to abandon your car and it was hit or vandalized.

Weather conditions may be so treacherous that you have to abandon your car.

If you return to find your car has been sideswiped, and the offender didn’t leave any contact information, you’d file a collision claim to pay for damages. If you do have the other driver’s contact information, his or her liability coverage would kick in to pay for repairs.
