You don't get to "LET" a prosecutor handle it. The prosecutor will do their job independent of you filing a civil suit. It is clear that this woman committed some sort of criminal act but the legal analysis will be rightfully done by an Assistant District Attorney who will determine based on the investigation and evidence what charge she/he can prove the elements beyond a reasonable doubt. If I were a betting woman the last charge she/he would consider is Attempted Murder. The one that seems to apply is Hit and Run or possible Aggravated Assault. You are free to and should sue this person for personal injury and damages.

Both. The prosecutor or district attorney will handle the criminal aspect of this hit and run or assault case. However, you need a personal injury lawyer to assist with your damage claims.

If you have not filed a complaint with the police do so as soon as possible. They will investigate the case and refer the matter to the DA for review and presentment to a Grand Jury if they believe probable cause exists. Whether her insurance company handles the claim or not has nothing to do with a criminal prosecution except maybe on the issue of restitution.
