This recent Dodge Ram Collision Repair is representative of a very common impact area on pickup trucks, the right rear. Typically speaking when a pickup truck is rear ended by another vehicle, it will tend to strike on one corner or the other, (often times the vehicle behind will attempt to swerve to the right to avoid hitting the vehicle in front of them, thereby impacting the right rear corner).
When a panel has damage that is beyond feasibly straightening, (like this Dodge Ram), it will be replaced. Turk’s Collision has performed many bedside replacements, and its not uncommon to see at least one pickup truck in the shop for bedside replacement in any given month. The rear bumper and tail lamp were also damaged and replaced.

Occasionally a vehicle will be in the body shop for more than a single collision or insurance claim. This Dodge Ram also had front damage from a separate incident, and those auto body repairs were performed while the truck was at the body shop. When an insurance company covers the cost of the repair, that claim payment covers one loss, or one “incident”. In this example, the front and rear damages are from different accidents, therefore the rear end collision was handled through one insurance carrier, while the front damages were handled by a different carrier. Two separate accidents, two separate claims.
