If the other person had the legal coverage, you should be covered for all damages. Unfortunately, with a ten year old car, often the insurance companies will write it off if the damage is near the value of the car. You may need to fight that, depending on what they say the car and damage are worth. You will probably not be covered for a rental vehicle, but you need to contact the other insurance company about that. It doesn’t sound like your own coverage will cover that. You can often get a courtesy car from repair shops. Good luck, it is never fun dealing with insurance companies, but it is clear that you are not at fault in any way and should not have problems with your own insurance company.
