Airbags deployed. Is my car totaled?

Asked by Oct 27, 2015 at 02:39 AM about the 2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, I got in a pretty bad wreck today. I was
traveling about 40mph on a main road and
someone pulled out of a side street and
attempted to make a left hand turn. I
couldn't avoid them and I hit them head on
in their drivers side. My drivers airbag
immediately deployed. My drivers door had
trouble opening and made a creaking sound.
Also my hood is bent and my bumper and
grill is completely off. I also notice the frame
is bent in to where it damaged the radiator.
Is my car totaled? I'm guessing it is but
someone said it's fixable.

Your insurance places a value on your car and if the repair exceeds 60% (I think) they total it

I miss it but it will take time to pursue getting my money because progressive selfish
