I got into a car accident yesterday, and the front passenger side wing had been ripped off however the wheel and engine have remained intact as far as I can tell. My car is a Chevrolet Matiz valued at £850. I'm concerned that even though the damage isn't too bad and looks to be mostly bodywork, the repairs company will write my car off. I read somewhere yesterday that if the repairs on a car cost 50% or more than the cars value then they will write it off and I'm not sure how true it is. If it helps, I'm insured with Direct Line (UK). I'm an 18 year old student who lives in a really rural area and as such need a car to get around and stuff since the public transport where I live is so bad.
