After a rear end collision

I just got into an accident; I was stopped at a light when a car plowed into me from behind. Luckily I gave myself enough room so I didnít hit the car in front of me. BTW very surprised on how the car held up the car was going at least 25 mph and the car was not drivable. I didnít get an estimate yet but it doesnít look like it did too much damage from the outside. The body lines sill line up on the side, the exhaust tip is bent, I donít know if that is something that could just be bent back? Is there anything I should be aware of before I get it fixed as far as hidden damages, etc? Iím worried that such a high speed the frame could be bent. Is there recommended places around the Detroit area? My experiences with shops arenít that good, they always donít do a good job.

Your going to want to get an estimate with the bumper taken off so the damage can be analyzed. Could be repairable or could possibly need a new rear body panel, hard to say. Go to a recommended shop that your/their insurance recommends but only if they give a life time repair warranty!
