Default rear-ended, what to look for re. repairs/estimator

i was hit by an Escalade at a stop light from behind...they were going between 30-40 mph i'm guessing. Saw them coming in RVM so was able to brace myself...don't even think they were braking when they hit me.

The escalade has a front fender that makes a point, and that point went right in to my trunk hood from the SUBARU tag across middle down to bottom of hood. Dent is about an inch deep and 10" long from top to bottom. Trunk still works, surprisingly. Also the rear bumper got pushed in about 1/2" or so, not much but it did get shifted inward, as the rear bumper panel is pointed up about 5 degrees upwards from back towards front. He hit me straight on pretty much, so force was spread out across entire bumper, which was fortunate i guess. Bumber got scraped up pretty god, but no indentions...just an imprint of his bumbers scrapped across length of my bumber. I was in neutral when his and road was a bit wet so slid some. I had some whiplash and got dizzy and a bit nauseous afterwards cause back of head hit headrest pretty are on recoil. Felt ok at time of accident due to addrenaline, we'll see how i feel tomorrow.

I have dudes insurance guy coming out to look at car in next couple of days. Never dealt with an estimator, but assume he will low-ball me or overlook things that might have been affected in wreck. What should i check out, say under car or otherwise when repairs costs are considered. I don't think he'll total it, hope he doesn't. Car drives the same as far as i can tell.

thanks for any help.
