2022 Model 3 Needs Floor Pan [Body shop states car totaled from battery damage]

I have a 2022 Model 3 LR that is 6 months old. I struck an object on the highway and it damaged my battery pack and floor pan. They are telling me that the car is totaled because there is no replacement part for the floor pan. Can anyone confirm this claim or direct me to somewhere I can find out this info? In dire straits because Tesla is no longer accepting orders for the LR because their delivery is pushed out until mid-late 2023.
Can the existing floor pan be repaired? Something came through your battery pack and your floor… what did you hit? I hit a meta
At the certified body shop now waiting for inspection. The original inspection was done by 3rd party insurance company which deemed the floor pan needed to be replaced. I hit a metal piece from a semi-trailer that weights about 50lbs. I think they use them to secure cargo down onto the trailer.
