How can I make a tow company pay for damage they caused to my car?

Question Details: After a tire blowout, the insurance company contracted a tow company that sent a tow truck. The tow driver backed into my disabled vehicle causing $2,000 in damage to my car that is only worth $1200. Why do I have to pay $800 to make my car drivable? Now I have to pay or get another car. Neither can I afford. The driver of the tiw truck could not speak English well and would not give me any of his info like name, insurance or licence. He dropped me off and took off when I called the police.
