If you were involved in a hit and run car accident where the person who hit you drove off, would you press for criminal charges if you had the chance?

This happened to me yesterday. I got the license plate of the lady that hit me. The cops tracked her down and she said she drove off because she was scared. They called me and told me this and asked if I wanted to press criminal charges- if I don't, she won't get any sort of citation at all for a hit and run. I told the cop no, I didn't want to, but I basically have 2 years to change my mind due to the statute of limitations. Today I feel like a freight train hit me. My neck hurts especially bad and so do my knees. I went to the doc and he said that I'll be fine but that I need to rest. My car is most likely totaled. At first I didn't want to press charges but I think I'm beginning to change my mind...
