The positive battery terminal is called the "battery safety terminal" and has one part that blows apart in case of wrecks. It leaves power to the normal electronics for things in the body, but cuts power from the starter and fuel system etc. The positive terminal will need to be replaced, but can temporarily be knocked back together just to get it started/running if you get the red plastic coverings off of the terminal.

Also any seatbelts that were buckled may have blown the pre-tensioners, which would need to be replaced as well. Honestly your best bet is to bring it to the dealer, explain what happened and have them write up an estimate accordingly. At that point you can decide whether to pay out of pocket or to go through insurance.

You think professional is expensive, just wait until you pay for amateur.

Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right.

Examine what is said, not who speaks.
