Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
All your insurance company is liable to do is pay for repairs if the car can be repaired. If the insurance company finds that the damage is greater than 60-70% of the book value of your car (depending on your insurance policy terms, as they all vary slightly) the insurance company can total your car, in which case you would get a payment of book value of the car. However, if they do not total the car, all you are entitled to is the car back and the insurance company paying to put it back in the condition it was in at the time of the theft.
