It's always hard dealing with an accident. I remember my brother when he wrote off his Astra and he was so shaken up it took him a while before getting behind the wheel again. When you do drive again, you're likely to be quite nervous, but take someone with you it might make you feel better and just gain your confidence back.
My brothers crash was very similar, and the damage was similar - someone pulled out at a roundabout and he didn't have time to react and smashed straight into the side of their car. She'd only been driving a few weeks and was using her mothers car, so obviously lack of experience on her part.
I remember getting beaten up last year (got my front tooth smashed out and needed 18 stiches at A&E) in a road rage incident (I was blameless, so no flaming). It took me a while before my confidence came back, and was nervous on a night with lights behind me. But confidence does come back in time.
Anyhow, hope the insurance claim goes quickly and you can be back on the road soon
