Bike knocks into mine. Steering lock broken.

So a guy on a Husky Sumo knocked into my bike when he slipped on the municipal rail track last rainy Friday and knocked my bike into the car next to it.

The steering lock was engaged, and the force of hitting it broke it so it won't do anything when engaged. At first I figured it might not be a big deal but I think multiple parts might need replacing. Additionally he cracked my headlamp guard off one side (it's the BMW plastic one) and slightly bent a peg.

He said he'd pay for the damage without involving insurance if it was reasonable, but now I'm guessing it could be pretty pricey. WHat do you think? The plastic is gouged and the locking bolt is loose.
