Hmm, the no-fault and minitort laws will prevent you from going to court and getting anything more than $500 from him. Thats the laws here.
You carry insurance on your car to fix your car. His insurnace won't pay for your damages. You can sue them for up to $500 maximum.
If you don't carry collision, you aren't getting it paid by insurance, except for the $500 max under mini tort.
EDIT: They just changed the law a few months back to allow you sue for up to $1000, instead of $500
