2008 Honda Civic Question: if one coil spring is bent and going in for repair should I request both to be?

My car was in a front end accident it's been determined after my persistence of something still wrong with my car it was finally determined that this accident bent the right driver side coil spring. Insurance only wants to repair just the one bent but I saw somewhere it's best to change both. Is this true? Or by only changing one will it have no effect on the spring which is being changed?? Please Help

    All suspension components should be replaced in pairs. It helps keep uniformity in balance and promotes proper alignment. This puts less wear on your tires and less stress on your differential by keeping the opposing sides of your vechicle better balanced.
