What happens if you were not at-fault for a car accident but you had an expired license?

Question Details:

I got into an auto accident that, through pictures and the police report, was proven to be the 17 year-old other driver's fault. My license has been expired for over 2 years, but I have current insurance and registration. I was ticketed for the expired license, and my totaled car towed. It has been 2 weeks since the accident and the other driver's insurance company is saying that they still have not spoken to the 17 year-old driver via his parents. I did go and obtain my license 2 days after the accident. I told the other insurance company that I just want my car fixed. I do have a court appearance next month. What can I expect to happen in court?
