In a front end accident

I was recently in a front end accident with someone, (she backed into me going like 15 miles per hour) and I have some damage to my bumper and a different smell come from my engine. The adjuster is coming out on Tuesday but I would like to know what to look for regarding front end accidents. What should my checklist be? New bumper is about all I know...Is there anything I should be aware of that I should make sure is taken care of?

The adjuster is not going to take the bumper off for inspection to the members under.
When you get the claim number, take the car to reputable body shop and they will call the adjuster if they find more damages the initial inspection could notice.

I would take it to your preferred body shop, that way you'll know what to expect.
