I've been on my job 5 years as comanager my supervisor has been with the company 2 years
a few months ago his car was hit while on transport for the company ( a bank run )the company paid for all repairs. because he was on duty Just recently my car was hit/run while parked on company lot/grounds during my shift. When I asked if they could assist me they said sorry but we can't help you at all .
No. This is note even close to the same situation.
Your supervisor is a manager and was in the process of working. The company he works for will be responsible for any damages that occur while he is performing work for them.
In contrast, you were parked and someone hit you. You are not a supervisor. They have no responsibility for your car.
You need to put this claim through your own insurance.

Your company will likely not pay because you were not using your vehicle in the scope of employment.
Not the same thing. You were not using your car for company business when it got hit. Sounds like you had just driven it to work and parked it like any other work day.
No. Your Company has nothing to do with your damages. File a claim under your collision coverage or uninsured motorist coverage, if you cannot identify the culprit. Report the hit-and-run incident to the police as well. Make sure your insurance company is made aware of the incident as soon as possible.
