Thing I would consider

Was the car towed?
Tow Drivers are notorious for using the steering linkage as a tie down and will bend it when they tie down the car for transport.

Was the rear suspension checked in the alignment. It is adjustable.

brake lines. Were they damaged. Steel and rubber
Rotors were they damaged.
Calipers is one hanging up.
Do you have ASR or any steering control system. Sheck the wire.

Steering. Was the linkage bent. Was the steering box damaged.
Was the wheel hub bent

The rear end. Was any component damaged. Bushings damaged?
Again did they do a 4 wheel alignment.
