    Some of it will depend on the age of the car as well. A lot of bodyshops can work wonders with pullers and jigs to straighten out damage.

    hi mate,
    sorry about your bad luck..!
    whilst you are waiting for the insurance assessor to come and look at the vehicle, why don't you get some body shops to come and give you a few quotations ? they will tell you up front if its a scrap car or not.... if you get them up front you can show the assessor that it is repairable, if you were full comp on your insurance and the person did run into the back of you then in theory if it is repairable (and you can provide independant quotes to substantiate) then you have less to worry about..
    from what you have described so far as long as the rear wings (i.e) the skin of the rear sides is ok, and the rear floor is only slightly kinked, then a new rear panel / bumper and crash can (bumper bar) plus all the other normal sundries... is'nt a major head ache....
    good luck...
