Unhappy Help! (need info on crash damage)

This past Thursday I was involved in somewhat of a fender bender. To make a long story short, Dumb*** pulls out in front of me, I swerve, hit a median curb, busted the driverside wheels, destroyed the front bumper lip, and now it turns out the frame is bent in someway. They are saying it looks like the strut tower has been pushed up on that side. Does anyone know how big of a fix this is going to be or is it so sevre that they will total my car? Just curious if anyone knows.

Can't help you without pictures...
And a bent frame isn't exactly a somewhat "fender bender" LOL.
My guess is that the shop is trying to take you for a ride because you can't bend your frame rail by destroying the rim only.
Get an estimate from an honest shop.

Well I just got the best news in the world today. My car isn't getting totalled and they frame was indeed bent! I guess i need to explain further that when i bent the rimS, yes both rims on the driverside, it did bend the frame under the fender. I hit a median curb thanks to the idiot pulling out in front of me and me swerving to miss. Those median curbs are high and well, that's why my car took $4500 worth of damage! Oh well, at least it's fixable and I'll have it back soon
