Your insurance company should pay you (or pay to have your car fixed) and then go after the other driver in subrogation. Speak to your own insurance agent about this. The other option is to sue the other driver but you may have trouble finding an attorney to take your case on a contingency if there is no injury involved. Good luck.

Yes. Sue the at fault driver and obtain a judgment. Then collect on the judgment by garnishing wages or taking the assets of a bank account to satisfy the judgment. An attorney is a must to make sure you follow all the rules!
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
