So they are offering $786.00 to total the car and will let you keep the car? If so, that is probably your best bet and then worst case, scrap the car for salvage because you will probably get at least another few hundred. Then you have at least a grand to do something with.
Depending on what it takes to just get it running, I would not pay the $3,100.00 to repair it. At most, I would put $500.00 into getting running again and drive it until it fails.
As for the attorney, I personally don't waste my time with them. Even if they get you more money they are going to charge you something or take a portion of the settlement so in most cases, they are not worth it.
As for your wife. She is always right. I would normally agree with you. I would rather they open the door and take what they want then cut the roof and take what they want because that way I not only lose what they took but have to replace the roof as well. However, my wife says lock the front door even though we live in a town like Mayberry, I just do it because it makes her happy. When shes happy, I am happy. :)
