It may be difficult to locate an attorney willing to handle only a property damage claim. I suggest that you get a couple of independent estimates of your car value and provide that to the insurance carrier as proof of the reasonable value. If you can't agree, your option is to file a court action against the party damaged your vehicle. Depending upon the amount of the loss, you may be in Small Claims Court or the regular court.
