If they put a whole new frame on it should be fine. but go to a body shop you trust you don't have to use the one they say. And let the body shop handle the money when you pick it up then pay the deducible that's the way "good" body shops work. And if you never touched the check then when they find more damage, and they will, the insurance is still on the hook.
insist on a body warranty (most shops give 5 yrs to life) and get to know your body shop adjuster they will recommend other things that might be worn that you might be able to just pay for the part since the ins. is paying for the labor. They cannot double bill its a FELONY. Example might be body mounts.
