The responsible party must pay the repairs to the other party.If there is a police report and witnesses, you need to present these to the insurance company for reconsideration. If they still say it is not their full responsibility, you need to ask them for an explanation as to why they are not responsible. You may be able to offer a rebuttal to their position.If they continue to deny, you can ask for a supervisor to try to get further settlement offer and/or ask your agent for assistance. If all of this fails, you may have to take them to court, but it will cost you since you did not have insurance so you will have to hire a lawyer on your own.
