You can sue in civil court for the amount as well. You can seek the value of the vehicle, court costs, attorney fees (should you decide to retain legal counsel), as well as personal injury for the crime and any fees you incurred to collect the car and monies paid for alternate transportation such as public transportation fees, rental cars, etc.
If you can not afford an attorney you could seek help through Legal Aid in your area or find an attorney that works on a contingency basis which means if you do not win and get paid, they do not get paid. To contact legal aid go HERE, HERE, and HERE. For forms to file for a civil action Pro Se (without an Attorney) go HERE.
As I mentioned before you CAN seek legal costs and attorney fees. Also, you can find criminal, small claims, and civil forms HERE (I already provided the forms above that you would need to file yourself if you decide to move forward without an attorney). In your request for a hearing you should have already told the court what you wanted as far as restitution for the offense, but you can certainly file a form stating that with the court again as well as bring it up at the hearing. You can use this form HERE to do that, write your own statement in a free hand form, and/or the form HERE and mark (other).
