Ouch! What year is it? I have worked in a body shop and it looks like about $2,800 worth of damage. If you say that you will have to pay cash, and act like you may have to save up a month or two to get the cash together, they may cut you a break and change around $1,800.

That's why I have full coverage on everything I own. No matter how old it is.

Well it is a 2005. And I do have comprehensive coverage. My question is: Is this damage something that will affect the frame of the car and integrity of the frame? I mean if it is just the door or panel, it can be taken off as one piece but here the panel is integerated with the roof and will they repair it?

Door needs to be replaced with used part and quarter panel needs to be replaced either new or used. This is all cosmetic repair and most body shops can repair no problem with warranty. Quarter will have to be spliced into roof and blended. Put in for rear wheel alignment.
