Ooof, sorry to hear this. I had similar damage on driver's side front not from a curb, but from a massive pothole. The visible stuff: killed the tire and rim, fender damage, fender liner destroyed. Less visible damage to the suspension: bent (lower) control arm, had to replace the "engine cradle" (subframe), and (most recent) damaged wheel hub bearing assembly (high pitched drone/vibration at speed). Because my car is only 6-7 mos. old and with low miles, the shop used all oem parts. My insurance covered rental car + all repair costs minus deductible; however, my premiums will be going up soon.
My repair shop worked directly with the insurance co's claim handler (i.e. took care of all the paperwork); however, I still had to make sure that the lines of communication were open and that things moved forward in a timely manner by touching base with each side by phone.
If you opt for repairs, make sure you road test the car and don't be shy about returning it to the shop until everything is done to your satisfaction.
