Report this to your insurance, consider consulting with a local attorney, but, to summarize, Mr Kopelson's advice is spot in
It doesn't matter that you don't have a license, so if you were injured, retain a local personal injury lawyer.
You should take care of any medical issues and consult with an attorney in your state. I would not speak with the other driver's insurance company until you have consulted with an attorney. Do not give a statement to the insurance company.

As my colleagues have suggested, the fact that you do not have a license does not affect the other driver's responsibility for the wreck. Please consult with an attorney who is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law as soon as possible. Good luck.
