I got rear ended at a stoplight today. It was a low speed accident, no airbag deployment. DD was not with me (thankfully) but I had the car seat base in my car. I know you are supposed to get a new car seat any time it is in an accident but does that apply to even minor accidents with just the base in the car? I'm thinking I will make the other drivers insurance pay for a new one just to be safe but wanted more opinions.
