"According to the grim averages of the road, you stand a one-in-seven chance of meeting with an auto accident some time this year. Fortunately the same statistics say it's likely to be a minor scrape, but the smallest injury you can figure to get away with is a case of writer's cramp. Filling in forms and asking and answering questions is a serious business. Though you may think you're fully insured, damage claims - including unjustified ones - could strip you of everything you own or tie up your income for life. And even if you're an innocent victim you can put yourself in the wrong by what you do or fail to do. It makes sense to learn the ropes before you find yourself dangling from them. Then, if the need ever arises, you'll be able to practice the basic rules of post-accident protection: Keep cool, and know what you're doing."
