Serious Damage to Rocker Panel. Is it recoverable?

My Yaris was involved in a side collision at an intersection, which caused the doors and the rocker panel to be badly damaged. A driver in an old civic trying to beat an amber light collided into the side of my car.

Here are the pics:


Anyone have any idea how much this is gonna cost to fix? I know I definitely need two new doors, but I am unsure if the rocker panel is recoverable or if an entirely new one is needed. As you can see its seriously crimped.

Yikes! That is really crunched. Repair would require welding in that section, as I don't believe that could be pulled. The only problem is that that area is constructed of about 4 layers of sheetmetal, so it would be difficult to properly mate the new one.

Um if they hit you and you got their info their insurance should cover it. If it was a hit and run and you have full comprehensive insurance you should have a reduced deductible. Mine was $300 vs. $500 on a hit and run. That definitely will not buff out.
