It would be great if we could turn back time so that we could correct missteps that cost us money, stress, or time. Unfortunately, this is not possible.

Sadly, most people do not search for what to do after a traffic accident until they have been injured in a traffic accident. It is too late to take some of the steps they should have taken; however, the information they learn may help them going forward or if they are ever in a similar situation.
