sorry about the accident, hope your ok...
I stand behind what Brian says that "its just not the same anymore". When i was young, my father would always tell me when you get into an accident, the car is just not the same--and its true. Luckily i've never been in an auto accident myself (knock on wood), but i've driven cars before they were hit, and after. Even if the body shop was excellent with the paint, body work, drive train and acceleration, the car is just going to be "sluggish". If i were you, I wouldnt even look at the thing anymore. My opinion--try to get the most $$$ you can get out of it.
