         What To Do After An

         Accident

         By Gene R. Zweben,                                                                                Centerstate Bank was one of 20 teams of corporate volunteers

         keep it in your glove
         box.
           The advice here may
         seem obvious, and you
         probably  know all  of
         it already, but in the
         heat of the moment
         following an accident,
         even the best of us may
         forget.
         1. Check yourself and your passengers for injuries.
           If you have even the slightest doubt about how badly
         someone is hurt, call an ambulance.
         2. Get to safety.
           Move your car out of the way of traffic if you can.
         Turn off the engine, put the car in park, and turn on your
         hazard lights.
         3. Call 911.
           Even if the accident is minor, a police report is
         critical to the claim process and helps establish who’s
         at fault.
         4. Don’t admit fault.
           While you should exchange information with the
         other driver, be careful not to say too much. Anything
         you say could be misinterpreted, especially if it sounds
         like an apology.
         5. Document the accident.
           Make written notes about what happened, anything
         the other person may have said, and if you’re not too
         injured and it’s safe to do so, take pictures.    Grain Free, Holistic

         7. Notify your insurer.
           This almost goes without saying, but it’s so
         important, it can’t be overstated.
           After you’ve had a few hours (or days) to collect
         yourself, also be sure to protect your legal rights by
         contacting a competent attorney who knows the ropes
         when it comes to personal injury law.
