[Resolved] I need some legal advice

Hello my fellow bimmerfesters.
I am in need for a legal advice, specifically my course of action in filing a small clams court lawsuit.
Here is what happened.
My car is a lease (36 month term started in October 2011), on January 5th 2013 my car was involved in a car accident and 100% fault has been assigned to another party.
My car is still in the shop being repaired, and by the time I might get my car back I would be out of it for more than a month.
My understanding of lease vs finance situation is that the lease is a rent as opposed to the financing (ownership). Now I am trying to get another company to reimburse me for the lease payment I incurred for the month my car is at the shop being repaired and not used by me. And it does not look like we are on the same page - so am I being unreasonable to request being reimbursed for my lease payment for the month my car is in the shop because it wasn't my fault?
Should I file the lawsuit against the other insurance company or their insured?
Thank you,
