You are liable for the accident because it was a rear-end collision. The fact that the other driver's license had expired does not release you from liability.
Your liability includes property damage (cost of repairs) to the vehicle not at fault in the accident.
If any occupants of the vehicle not at fault were injured, you are liable for their medical bills, pain and suffering (an amount in addition to the medical bills) and wage loss.
