If I got 2 estimates regarding a car repair, can I use the highest one?

Question Details: I was in a car accident. The insurance company was supposed to be keeping in touch with me. They haven't returned phone calls. I sent the at fault party an estimate of the damages on my vehicle to her address. I went and got that estimate 8 days ago. That estimate is only valid for 30 days. It is in the amount of $1200. On that estimate they left out the estimate for repairing my front bumper on my vehicle. When I noticed that they forgot to add the damage for my front bumper on the estimate I went to another body shop on today and received a $3200 estimate. Does it matter which estimate I use when I go to court?
