The other driver is out of the picture unless you sue him.
You would present your estimate to his insurance company claims adjuster.
However, if your repair estimate still gets adjusted downward by the previous damage your problem won't change.
If you want any real help here, you still have to answer the questions about your car, the repair cost and post photos of your bumper and the car.
