My advice on getting your insurance company involved was that this was a hostile situation and you might have to pursue subrogation.
There is no way around the fact that your friend is at fault and liable. She should either turn this into her company or she should pay you the damages out of pocket. The first thing you may want to do is get an estimate on the repair so you know the dollar amount you are dealing with.
