Welcome to JA.
I am sorry to hear about your situation.
Please note that this is not a chat service therefore you may experience delay.
Have you spoked to AXA about the issue yet?
My advice on the matter is usually before engineers repair a vehicle they tend to send their report to the insurer to consider and authorise. The report usually details the damage to the car along with images of the car. Therefore i suggest you contact AXA and ask them for a copy of the engineer report. Once received you should review it and perhaps send to the mechanic that partially fixed the damage to comment on. Hopefully your mechanic will support your account and if so, you have good evidence to seek recovery of the costs to repair the damage in question.
I hope i have clarified the position.
Thanks and stay safe.
