Except for a few US states, your insurance policy does not typically cover Diminished Value.
However, every insured driver in North America is required to carry liability coverage, the intent of which is to cover losses to someone else's property as a result of their fault. Diminished Value is such a loss.
In plain English, if someone hits you, you have now suffered a loss in vehicle value through no fault of your own. Their liability coverage is responsible for covering your loss.
