It also depends on what the buyback is. When my 87 16V Scirocco got hit last 
May it was totaled. I got $2400 and kept the car. The buyback was $100. The 
new rear caliper I had recently put on was worth more than that.
Do you have collision on your car? If so, your insurance company can cover 
the damage and then they will go after the other insurance. If there's no 
collision, or so liability by your insurance company, they couldn't give a 
shit less, sadly!
You can also remember that soft tissue injuries, like a back, don't always 
show up immediately.
