2008 Chevy Cobalt - Is It Totaled?

As much as I hate it, I need some advice.

A long story short, I hydroplaned and smashed my left rear into a tree yesterday. Slid backwards and hit square in the left taillight area and really lmoved around a bunch of stuff including a smashed windshield. I have insurance, but it's liability only - so all costs involved will be straight out of my pocket.

I took as many detailed pictures as I could, so please take a look and give me the verdict. Is it totaled? Some people are saying its totaled, some are saying it isn't, but I haven't had it estimated or checked out yet. If not, what kind of repair costs am I looking at? If it is totaled, what kind of money could I get selling it as-is? (only 23k miles on it).

Left rear tire is touching the back of the well also.

Not totaled for a good body man and probably worth fixing if it's not insured. I've seen a lot worse. It will need a corner pull and a rear quarter panel, the rest is cosmetic and junkyard parts.
