    I can attest to the pain cause d by an accident (the other drivers fault). I was in one a few years ago (not at high speeds) but just the shock of it left me dazed and confused. I luckily had a friend with me who is an attorney who knew exactly what and how we should proceed with this situation. She had a check list of steps that we followed that not only kept us safe but also protected us legally from any repercussions of the fender bender. My friend put the steps that we followed on her website http://lawblog.wallacegraham.com/auto-accident-check-list/ . This may be something that you would want to go over with your teens or even print it off and leave a copy in the glove compartment.

    There's a similar checklist on the back of my problem insurance card.

    The problem of course, as you note, is trying to remember what to do in such a situation since you usually aren't thinking clearly. That includes remembering that you have a checklist to refer to.

    I like your method of just hauling your lawyer along with you all the time. :)
