    It will all come down to what the car is worth vs. cost of repair. If the damage is more than the car value then it will be written off. Sounds to me like a major repair by what you're saying.

    the thing is if they do say its a loss they will offer you market value for it hold out and push them for as much as you can you may get a shock what they will offer you

    If the whole right side is damaged badly then yes. I am assuming doors are badly dented? Then if so they need to be replaced, as well as the body panels. Hope I'm wrong.
