Subject: [CR]Pinched dropout from shipping

Hi, I had a bike shipped to me UPS and it was damaged. The right rear drop out was pinched making it impossible to fit the rear wheel. It's pinched 2 mm narrower than the axle. Can't tell if the derailleur is damage until i get the wheel on however it looks ok. The bike was insured and UPS is coming to take a look. Can the dropout be repaired? It's a steel, frame, Reynolds 531c.
