I don’t know what the insurance companies portion of the damages as between personal property, the vehicle and the fence is but it sounds like the car has more damage than the fence I would guess. The car is $7500 and the fence was $2500 and you think you should get 75% of the $5000 policy. In addition you can sue the drunk driver and the owner of the vehicle. You can sue in small claims court for $10,000. Get an estimate of the vehicle and see what the damages are.
I think your real answer is all the above. Hire a personal injury Plaintiff lawyer whose got game; that means, tactics, strategy and timing. Have your attorney make a claim with his insurance carrier, make a claim with your insurance carrier and go to war. I believe one way or the other it is statistically very probable you will be able to collect. If you retain a very experienced lawyer, he can make your insurance company do a lot of the work. Move forward quickly. The passage of time...

Whatever you do, don’t ignore this; if a complaint summons has been filed and served upon you, you have 30 days to respond. Otherwise the Plaintiff obtains your default. He/she will have the opportunity to appear in court and convince the Judge of what the damages are. Check the date of the filing of the complaint; the Plaintiff has two years from the date of the accident to file.
You could hire a personal injury or contract attorney who are familiar with drafting releases. All in all, personal injury attorneys deal with releases on almost every case they are involved with, so that would probably be your most appropriate choice.
