Default accident report

so i got into an accident, long story short i was taking a left out of a side street with a super high snowbank and got hit by a car coming around the snowbank. there was no way i could have avoided it by being more careful.
anyway, my bumper is folded in, so is the body panel, and i need a blinker. being a student i'm trying to find the cheapest way to fix this, can i bend the bumper and body back? i found blinker housings for like 15 bucks online, but a new bumper is like 150. i don't really care about how it looks, but i need to pass inspection this month and i cant do it without a blinker.

you can try bending it back, my friends dad did that to two vehicles though he took off the panels and bent them back with a hammer.

the bumper you can bend back, the body panels will be a little more tricky so if you can find a cheap replacement panel go for it, other wise you can hammer on it to make it work.

I hate those fucking stupid snowbanks that block your view when turning onto a street.

i need to pass inspection in the next 3 days too, is there some way i can make a temporary blinker? the housing shattered and the corner is a bit of a mess, can i just put a light bulb into the exposed socket or something? how picky are inspections? will they care that my bumper is hanging out in the wheel well?
