1995 Maxima GXE . Someone backed into my driver side door and caved it in . The exterior damage was so severe it breached the power window compartment. Now my power window motor sounds like it's running but it won't allow the window to go up or down. Need to get a worst case scenario parts replacement estimate. Worst case scenario what replacement components will I need?

Possible that the power to the winder has snapped at the hinges of the door, open the side flap and check. If there is power but the motor does not respond then the motor must be checked, the circuit to trigger including the door switch must be checked using a multimeter for measuring the voltage at these points.
There are two speed sensors one is called a revolution sensor that is located on the case of the transmission. You can take the driver side wheel off and see the sensor on the top of the case of the transmission. A 10mm bolt is holding it in. Easy fix
You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle,
arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the
panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want
to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to
get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather
(can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to
access everything inside the door
Take the door panel off. There is a plastic clip on the window channel that holds the glass in place to raise and lower it. If you broke it you will need to replace the part. If the glass jumped off channel just stick it back on.
On my girlfriend's Civic, the same problem cropped up and it was the driver's door switch assembly. The power for all the windows is routed to the driver's door switches, and from there, out to the other doors (that's how the window lock on the driver's door is able to shut off the window power in the back doors). If your driver's door switch assembly has failed, you'd have no power to the windows, regardless of which switches you're trying to use. I'd suggest going to a salvage yard and finding a new driver's door switch assembly and swapping it into your car and see if that fixes it. It shouldn't run you more than $15 or so, and they're generally pretty easy to swap out - figure a few basic tools and maybe a half hour or 45 minutes of your time.
