Classic car crash claim - how can I prevent a write-off?

My neighbour has been involved in a car crash (not responsible). Someone hit the side of her Fiat X1/9 sports car. It was in excellent condition, but she now fears that they may write off her car. What are her rights in respect of getting the responsible party to repair her car to the condition it was before the accident?
