It depends on where the dent is. If its on a body pannel, then yes it can be repaired. But if its in the urethane bumper itself, it may be harder to "fix". Problem with urethane is its very flexable to a point, then if it goes past that point, it can split, crack, etc. I'd take it to a professional body shop though.... if you take it to someone who doesn't know what they're doing, they can make it worse and potentially take it past the point of any hope. Good luck with this. man, i'd be pissed too! People are soo careless... just makes me sick

^^^ yep, difficult indeed. found out first hand when some loser in a delivery truck punched his trailer hitch through the rear bumper on one of the tc's on my lot. sent it out to our body shop, and when it got back, you couldnt tell it had ever been damaged. so it is fixable, as long as who is doing the fixing knows WTF they are doing.
sorry to hear about it all the same. i am going to have to have someone repair my hatch lid, someone apparently thought it was a good place to rest something heavy and slide it off when they were done resting it there. i tend to disagree with their thinking. although its an excuse to throw the lip spoiler on my ride. that would cover it...

Um, you didn't sell that as a new car, did you?
