$3100 CDN is a bit over $2300 USD. You don’t say how many miles/kms are on it but the car is 19 years old so $3100 CDN seems reasonable.
I suppose Canadian insurance companies like those in the US have almost no comps from which to draw a value so, as others have suggested, find some comps from the classifieds herein and other US/Canada sales sites. Might even use ‘sold’ listings from fleaBay.
A picture would help but what you described sounds like at least $4-$5K USD worth of damage here in LA. You say you need a door but maybe just a skin would work. Probably have to source an entire door from a junkyard.
Did you get a repair estimate yet? Is the insurance offer based on repair or totaling the car? Don’t see any upside getting into lawyers over a car worth $3K either.
