Front End Damage
After a front-end collision, the body of a car is at high risk of requiring costly repairs.

If there is any damage to your frame, it will significantly decrease the lifespan of your vehicle though most types of body damage can be repaired. It can even render your car useless if a crack or dent in your frame can ruin the structural integrity of your vehicle. The item that you collided with will affect the total amount of damage from a front-end collision by the speed at which you were traveling.

To ensure that there are no structurally relevant issues after a front-end collision, be certain that your vehicle’s body is inspected by a mechanic. You may need to replace your vehicle if any problems are found.
