Not sure if this is helpful but I had someone rear end me in Jan 2010.
Here is the story if you want to read it all

Charlie Battistie took care of everything and spoke with AAMI (at fault driver's insurance) and sorted everything out. They did a perfect job too including my request for an Mtech2 bumper. They charged me not a sent more than what it cost them on top of the standard bar. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Didn't have to involve my insurance (youi) at all.
