1991 300 SE tail light broken called Total Loss

Someone backed into my 300 se and broke a part of the tail light
Now my insurance State Farm calls this a Total Loss.

It runs fine the interior is very nice but now it is a total loss.
I can keep it - but the title will say it is salvage

The other option is to let the insurance take the car away

They have not given me a dollar amount yet on what they will pay.

If it REALLY is just the tail light, then why even bother with the insurance? Just cancel the claim and buy a new one, install it and off you go. No salvage title etc. issues. IF you still can cancel the claim, that is.

I do think, however, that there must be some other damage they have detected.

BTW, the For Sale section might not really be the right place to post this.
