You will get dollars, particularly if there is any frame damage. The question is how much. Right after the car is repaired, get an independent appraisal of its value disclosing all the damage that was repaired and what couldn't be made 100% new like frame damage. Then (here's the hard part) get an appraisal of the car before it had the damage or discounting the subsequent repairs 100%. The difference is what I would ask for. If there is a big gap between what they finally offer and your number, consider filing a small claims court suit.
