47-54 chevy truck doors/hinge/cab dents.

My 53 had a huge dent in the left side cab from the door opening too far. I've looked at other for sale trucks of the same generation & about half of them have the same damage. Why was this so common? What steps can I take now to not do the same damage? Was the right side doors damaged as often? I'm at a loss fellas, any advice will help. Thanks
