Rear-ended by Duke Power truck

I was rear-ended by a Duke Power truck about 3 weeks ago now.I was told to get estimates for my car repairs.It is totaled.I bought my car when i was new and paid it off.I took good care of my car to insure that it would last.I am now retired and live in a remote area and need a reliable car.DukePower wants to give me $2200 for my car.A figure they got from the bank on how much they would finance for my year and model car.That amount just doesn't seem fair. I cannot buy a reliable car with that amount and being retired cannot afford a car payment.Do I have to accept the amount as they say I do? They have not even offered a rental car. And say they need to pick up my car asap.I do not feel this is right as I am put though this stress and have no car.And can not even get one with what they want to give me.Pleae tell me if there is anything I can do to get enough to buy another car.
