After be'g hit i was told the bush'gs need replaced but its normal wear. True or

(2005 Volvo V70)
in The Colony, TX on December 07, 2011
Prior to this I was side swiped on the front right side pushing my car up onto the center median now also hitting the left side front tire. The right tire was sliced and $4400 on the repairs their insurance covered. PROBLEM: when i picked up my car after repairs, there was a clunking sound like loose nuts and bolts in the front right that was NOT there prior. I took my car back, they rechecked it and told me my bushings needed replaced and it was normal wear. WAIT A MINUTE! They were just fine before! Could being hit cause them to break or they just "happen" to go bad at the SAME TIME? They say its my responsibility to pay the $650 to replace them. SOMETHING SMELLS REALLY BAD HERE!
