Since you mentioned no injuries, I assume there weren't any. In that case, if the accident was property damage only, you can file a property damage claim with your insurer if you have uninsured motorist coverage. If not, then you can sue the at-fault party for negligence. Depending on the amount that you sue for, it may be possible to file the lawsuit in small claims court. Upon prevailing in the case, you can recover the cost of repairs to the vehicle and court costs. A court judgment against the at-fault party can be enforced with a wage garnishment.
