Depending on the age of your car, there is something out there called "Diminished Value".  If it is a fairly new car (meaning a few years old or newer), then you might be able to get more value for it from the at fault insurance company.  How?  By getting a "Diminished Value" report and using it once they make an offer for the damages to your car.  Yes it might cost money to get the report done, but it might get you thousands more in return.  It is always something to check out!
