Re: Rear Ended
Definitely file a claim for loss of value. Do not take their first offer. Push them back. That is how I manipulated the system a few years back. With that said, It doesn't look too hateful. Hard to tell from the photos, but it doesnt look like any real structure was damaged. New lift gate and flipper complete, new front/ rear bumper complete (including cover, foam insert, brackets and hardware), radiator, A/C condenser maybe. Nowhere near totaled I wouldn't think.
Sucks that you get to deal with all the BS. I hate dealing with body shops.
edit: make sure you inspect the paint job in direct sunlight. I had to take my last car to 2 different places to get it right. The last place had it 4 times trying to get the damn swirl marks out.
