Its about getting a fair price or getting the car repaired. The car can be repaired, the frame isn't bent, and they just want to profit out of the accident. A repair won't necessarily result in a salvage title and as we would keep the car for several years anyway, who cares? If they give us the car and a big chunk of cash and WE decide to repair it, the insurance company is off the hook anyway. If WE part out OUR car ( it doesn't belong to the insurer until we agree to sell it to them) then EE can profit. Alternatively, there are plenty of cars that have gone through far worse and last forever (my first two cars were each two different cars, front and back, welded together).
