What to do if I got into an accident a month ago and only have liability insurance?

The other driver got a ticket for failing to yield on a left turn and his being at is mentioned on police report. We went to court and he plead guilty, paid the court fines and his ticket.I haven’t gotten paid. Now both of my daughters had to go to the hospital, including myself, and so i missed 2 days of work due to pain. I have 8K in medical bills and my car still hasn’t been fixed. His insurer keeps making up reasons to avoid my car being fixed. They told me that their client is not cooperating with them and the vehicle of the insured is someone else and I feel like they are lying because the police report says the vehicle does belong to the client and not a third person. What do I do?
