What can I do if I was hit by a person with expired insurance?

Question Details:

I got rear-ended twice by a truck with trailer. The person provided the police insurance that had expired; he was cited. Now my parents got hurt during the accident and the car got hit hard. I contacted the person yesterday and asked him to provide the insurance but he said that he left the insurance card in the truck and the truck was parked at his company. I told him that I would contact him again this morning but he didn't pick up the phone. I left several messages with no return call. What do I need to do next? I don't want to claim on my insurance. Could I contact a lawyer; and what can the lawyer do if the insurance is no good? Should I speak with a personal injury attorney? I'm in Houston, TX.
