Print out and take with you the OptaComp contact information in the event that you are injured in a vehicular related accident while on University business, especially when traveling out of the local area.
First, drive safely to help prevent vehicular accidents and injuries in the first place. Obey all traffic laws, drive defensively, and do not text or dial cell phones while driving. Pull off the road in a safe location before texting or dialing a cell phone.

If immediate medical attention is not needed, then report the injury to your supervisor and call OptaComp at 877-518-2583.
Have the accident investigated by local law enforcement.
Do not admit fault or promise to pay anything.
