i dont know how they are where you are from; but when the assessor comes to check out the car make sure you point out all of the suspension damage. a lot of the time they only note outward exterior damage and don't even care to look beyond any obvious damage. this happened to me on my old 97 e420. car was hit by a truck that just rapidly turned onto the street and hit my front drivers side.
after the assessor checked it out and then i got it repaired at a body shop... im backing out of a drive way and all of a sudden it sounded like i hit an orange cone and was dragging it... get out the car... control arm was snapped... back to the collision repair shop to finish the job and waste more of my time.
