    Yes, you can claim it.
    You just mention what happened.

    Hope its a bad day for you. I am eager to know the response from insurance company as I am about to renew the insurance fm them for my car shortly. Hope you should not have difficult time negotiating with them for repair.

    Ouch, that must have hurt a lot to see the beloved Punto damaged. The dents & scratches are too deep, would need proper denting/painting job. Are you planning to get it repaired at the FASS or an FNG?

    My suggestion would be to get a new door and do denting work for the left rear Q panel alone, given that you are going the insurance route.

    There will not be much of a cost difference but you should manage to convince the insurance surveyor.

    Tough luck, don't worry she would be fine soon.

    Ouch. That hurts. Sorry to see the damage.
    If you are going to give this to MM, the cost would definitely come to around 10-15k
    Since you have already claimed insurance this year, I would recommend going for claim for this too.
    You can get this done outside as well, there are some good denters available.
    Colour matching would be an issue though since this is a TW.

    MM paint quality is not that great. Their paint booth is not so good, please check the car in sunlight while taking delivery. For my car they had to repaint since the finish was poor and had sand particles. Even the repaint was not that great.
