Yes, if the other driver was at fault, then his insurance should be covering your damages. The question is what the insurance will contest in your trying to make the claim: fault, extent of damages, prior damages. If there was any injury involved, seek treatment and follow recommendations, gather the records, take photos of the scene and vehicles and set a consultation before giving statements.

Yes, your lack of insurance does not affect your injury claim against the responsible party for the accident.

You were wrong to drive without insurance. That has nothing to do with whether you were at fault or whether you are entitled to recover.
