Please help!!!! Was in accident ran over curd/sidewalk median. Sign In

I got a Nissan Altima 2005.
Some idiot ran a red light on a semi highway type road. Speed limit is 55 an I was doing about that. Swerved an he hit my back passenger tire. Leaving no real visual damage. But he caused me to drive over a curb type sidewalk median. Driving prolly least 45 50 after the swerve. Front driver side rim had big chunk taken out an blew tire. Besides that there's no other damage someone like me can see or look for. Driving now definitly is different. Steering wheel shakes. Tires make noise an another noise from somewhere else. Other persons insurance is gonna pay for it but I wanna make sure I fix everything possibly that could be wrong. Dnt wanna have something come up a yr from now an have to fix. Please let me kno what u all think.
Lists or suggestions of anything that could definitly be affected.

Thank you

well without actually seeing the car theres no telling what is or isnt damaged. obviously your going to need a new rim and tire. your car is most likely out of alignment by alot, and depending on if the accident actually damaged suspension, steering, and alignment parts or just messed up the alignment. could have bent tierods or loose ball joints now, possiblity of damaged struts, the frame could be structurally damaged or bent but thats unlikely. take it to a reputable shop and have them go over it they have to authorize repairs before they perform them so they will let you know what it needs and tell you.
