I was at-fault for an accident and had no insurance, can my license be suspended?

Question Details:

I was in a car accident 7 months ago. I went to court but the other person didn't show up. I thought I was in the clear until his insurance company kept calling me. I was scared so I didn't answer. Then they contacted a law firm who started calling me and I refused to answer because of still being scared. Now they are trying to fight to get my license suspended. They want me to pay $8,674 to the insurance company. There is no way possible I can afford that working a part time job and being a single mother of 2. What should I do?
