Yes you can. one of my relatives did. But if the damamge was really bad, you probably should get it fixed. * Yes, unless a bank or finance company has a lien on the vehicle. The lienholder will insist that the damage be repaired or the money be used to reduce the loan. But if you own it free and clear, the insurance reimbursed you for the reduced value of the car. HOWEVER if you do not have this damage repaired, any future damage will not be fully covered.

Depends on how it was damaged. If it was another drivers fault, take it up with their insurance company, by getting estimates of a new door and submitting it to them. If it damaged the vehicle bad enough, by making it unsafe to drive or bending the frame, it would be safer to replace it anyways, rather than repairing it.
