As long as there is no lien against the old car, you can use the insurance settlement for anything you want. But you won't be able to get insurance on it until it is repaired.

If it was there fault their insurance company will be responsible for the damages. So yes you can sue, but most likely this won't be necessary as long as the insurance company gives you fair compensation.
