What are you going to sue them for? The accident is part of your record and that is the only thing that can be used to rate your policy. You always have the right to use an attorney and if you don't I don't imagine that it would make too many people happy at your insurance company but they can't penalize you for it. However if they are on the fence as to whether to renew your policy or not in the future it might make a difference.

If you report the incident to your insurance company, and want them to cover the damages, it's more than likely they will consider it an 'at fault' accident, and it's possible your rates will increase, especially if it's not your first accident. The best way to avoid insurance rate increase in this situation is to pay for the damages yourself out of pocket, and not report it to your insurance company.

You were recently in a car accident their insurance company went with a 5050 split you got your insurance company involved and they found the other party 100 at fault what is the next step?

Let your insurance company know everything that you know about the accident and about what the other person's insurance company has proposed, and then let your insurance company handle the rest. If the other person was 100% at fault for the accident, your insurance company has a very powerful incentive to reject the counter-party settlement offer of a 50/50 split.
