If you've ever been in a car accident you know it's quite an emotional event. Last week a friend of mine was in a minor accident.
"I couldn't think clearly. I was shaking and I felt like tears were going to start flowing. I wasn't hurt and the damage wasn't bad. I don't know why I started to feel this way." That's my friend describing the event.
I completely understand. Car accidents jolt us out of our expected experience into a place we never planned to be. This sudden change can make some people bewildered and others angry. It's a surreal experience. That makes it easy to miss details of the event or to forget what you should do.
With my friend in mind (and memories of my own experiences) I created this checklist for you to download and keep in your glove box--just in case. I hope that you never have to use it, but if you do, it may help you gather all the information you need--no matter what your state of mind at the time of the accident.
