Your only recourse is to sue the other driver, who was at fault, for negligence.
Your damages (monetary amount you are seeking in your lawsuit for negligence) would be the property damage (cost of repairs to your vehicle).
Depending on the amount of your damages, you might be able to file your lawsuit in small claims court. Upon prevailing in the case, you can recover the amount of your damages plus court costs. Court costs include the court filing fee and process server fee. You can enforce the court judgment with a wage garnishment.
