You may want to consider a Harken Hoister once you get your top sorted out. I remove and throw my top on in about tens mins all the time by myself. Well worth the investment in my opinion. Good luck with the claim!
I dropped mine a few years ago. One side split almost completely from the top. I carry comprehensive because of windshield damage and only paid $100 to replace it. The dealership accidentally gave me a complete package with freedom tops and the stalk for the wiper controls. I told them I didn't need the extras and they said to just keep it. Insurance only paid for the shell and side glass.
