2.7L help…please!!

This is a long story, so please bare with me. My shop (body and paint shop) took in a 2001 Intrepid with a 2.7 motor (with 120,000 miles) for a rear end collision. Upon completion of the repairs I was delivering the car to the customer. While I was headed to his place the oil light came on. I got it stopped pretty quickly, but I knew the damage had already been done. Oil level was at spec and looked pretty clean. Water temp was in the normal range when it quit. A mechanical shop we use said it looked like it had either a broke crank or rod. Does anybody have any insight as to known issues with these motors? The customer is now suing us for a motor!!
