How to Handle a Fender Bender
With stop-and-go traffic plaguing Orange County and the greater Los Angeles area, a fender bender is almost a rite of passage. Although it may appear to be just another small annoyance, fender benders should be given their due respect.
The finely trained staff of Precision Collision has seen most every form of collision damage over the years. And we're here to tell you to not simply brush off a fender bender incident. You and the other driver involved might not notice any car damages, shrug off the incident, and part ways. But always exchange insurance information, call the authorities to the scene so that you will have an accident report, and file a report with your insurance company. This information may prove incredibly valuable if damages are worse than previously assumed or injuries surface.
For instance, if your car was struck from behind, there could be no visible damage. However, one form of damage that can occur and go unnoticed is that the whole rear portion of your car could be bent–a costly repair that you might not notice until your rear wheel undergoes excessive wear.
The cars' fenders generally receive the brunt of damage in minor fender benders (hence the name of the accident). Small dents and dings are common damages that arise from these accidents. Although minor, you should always have the damages repaired to prevent rust forming on the car.
In addition to repairing cars that have undergone major collision damage, Precision Collision also specializes in ridding your vehicle of dents and dings so that even friends and loved ones won't be the wiser that you rolled into another car during morning rush hour on the I-10.
