Rear Ended Camry with Bumper Damage

Toyota Camry with rear end damage from collision before repairs at Almost Everything Auto Body.

This Toyota Camry was hit from the rear and is our Car of the Day. We disassembled the bumper to check for hidden damage and managed the process with Travelers Insurance to ensure that everything was repaired properly.

Often in a minor accident, if people don't see a big dent they think there is no significant damage. As these photos show, there was little obvious damage at the impact point because the plastic bumper was able to flex then pop back into shape. However when you look around the edges the bumper no longer fits properly and inside the trunk there are broken fasteners. There could be even more damage underneath the panel. So it is a great idea to exchange insurance information even in the most minor accidents.
