I was wondering if my cars gonna get totalled. I’m worried the frame is bent and I don’t have a proper clear picture but I have a blurry one. It’s 2016 and it has insurance but I’m worried

Not my trade area but I would think the A pillar may have some damage. If thats the case over here it would be written off. You may be lucky and a guard and door.

I’d bet a total loss. The A pillar is a critical support part and costs to get it perfect of a new on is cut and pasted. Looks like it got the front wheel too? problems later in life from there.

Shouldn't that be the other drivers fault?

If the "A" pillar (the left side of the windshield) is not damaged, and the area where the door is bolted to the body is not damaged, they will probably get a used door and go for it. Where I live that would be about $5K in damage, so close to a total loss. It is a shame that vehicles are totaled so easily, but such is the nature of "crush-zones" on modern vehicles. Passengers walk away from crashes, vehicles are reduced to recyclable materials.

Depends. the OP might have ran a light or pulled out in front of someone. The OP hasn’t given info on how it happened.
True, hadn't thought about that.
