Blind roads, busy red lights and crowded parking lots are generally places where fender benders generally tend to happen. Generally a fender bender refers to a very slow speed accident which consists of the bumping of the bumper / fender between two cars or a car and a motorbike. Though typically they are considered a minor accident they can still cost you a pretty penny to get it fixed.
What are the damages you can claim / expect from a fender bender?
When it comes to a fender bender accident, in terms of personal injuries they are almost insignificant to non-existent. However, when it comes to the damage to your vehicle the costs can be considerably higher. This is true despite the fact that the collision occurs at low speeds. This is primarily because if the bumpers don’t match for e.g. a regular Range Rover vs. a Citroen Saxo, it can crumple or damage the back side of your car. It also can damage the paint and any expensive finishes your car’s exterior may have. Some of our clients have experienced fenders / bumpers getting caught on each other.
