If by teenager you mean they hit your car with theirs and they are paying then definitely consider insurance as you need to be careful with agreeing privately to pay for the damage. Looks like either a new front bumper may possibly be needed which will need painting or wing or both. There are sensors around there to determine if the bonnet airbag needs deploying from say a deer or child which could have been damaged which are expensive and .....I could go on.

By the looks of it I assume things have just gotten out of clips some screws.
If nothing deformed or no paint issue probably you can fix it yourself.
If you are good at DIY.
Of course like PWood said first make sure there are no warning lights and all sensors are performing the way they should.

Thanks.

You really were lucky the bonnet airbag didn't deploy not that you'll be feeling lucky if your anything like me. I would definitely get it looked at by a trusted body shop first in case it is nothing major. I suppose in theory you could ask your insurer for legal advice on reclaiming costs from the teenager as you should have their details or at least the Police will ,being a reportable accident although your right probably zero chance.

There are plenty of specialists around who do minor bumper repairs, so if the clips aren't sitting right or anything simple that's your cheapest path for a repair. But if it looks fine and no warnings coming up it probably is fine.

Thanks - I'll see if I can find anyone open tomorrow.
There are no warning lights and the sensors appear to be working as expected.
We have managed to get it pushed back in line and clips appear to have engaged.
Fingers crossed nothing more sinister.
Good stuff.

The circled bit I am assuming would be held by screw.
Just in case have a look screw would still be in its location you would need to unscrew it and put it back.
Or a reputable body shop might be able to do it for you.
But it shouldn't cost you fortune may be couple of quids.
After that it would be time to have a nice family dinner sponsored by you :D

Thanks.
