Well...maybe. Depends on if your policy is written such that you have "Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Protection". That protection safe guards you against instances like these.
I'm guessing, though, that the motorist who hit you has insurance coverage. Typically guys like that won't stick around the scene of the crime if they themselves could add a penalty to themselves.
Why not get a copy of the police report, determine the driver'* name, search for that person'* name, call him/her and try to work something out?
