Hit a giant pothole. Need some help repairing vehicle

I collided with a large pothole on Wednesday. The impact was so large and so violent that my radar detector flew off the windshield, breaking the termination for the power wire, in the process. As a result, one of my wheels is completely destroyed, the tire is damaged and, the strut on that side of the car is bent. Ideally, I'd have the entire suspension on that side of the care replaced but, I'm not sure my insurance company will approve such an expensive repair. So, considering what I've just told you, can you guys recommend which parts I should push to have replaced first?

I was thinking:

Thorough strut tower examination, to look for fractures.
Control arm

In that order.

What do you guys think?
