As long as any damage is repaired following approved methods and procedures there shouldn't be an issue. They could be written off from a cost perspective or a liability perspective from having a large amount of damage and not worth being repaired, or the perception that the airframe is tainted now, an incident later could point (inconclusively probably) that the airframe was in a major incident and that would not look good in a civil suit.
I think most of the general public might be slightly alarmed at the level of maintenance that is required, especially on older airframes on a regular basis. Skins and structural members crack and are stop drilled or replaced, components are rebuilt, retested, and reinstalled routinely. Its when the work is done improperly, contrary to maintenance instructions...where things go wrong. Which if you think about it, given the amount of commercial air travel in the US and all the maintenance that goes on..its really impressive incident rates are so low.
