I'm no expert, but if it's thrown the boot shut line out, it sounds like it's twisted the body. Are you sure that the boot wasn't like that before, but you didn't notice because you weren't looking so closely?

The body shop should be able to check the geometry of the car and tell you whether it needs jigging. If it does, then the insurance will be doing you a favour if they offer to write it off. Jigging seems to be very hit and miss, and the only car I ever had it done on never drove the same again. I've heard the same story a number of times from others too.
