What are our rights on a claim settlement?

My son was T-boned by a truck last week. The truck ran a red light so the other driver was at fault. However my son drives a 14 year old car and it will probably cost more to repair than the book says the car is worth. We would never be able to get another car for what they would give us. What are our rights?
