Post-Accident Process in Chicago

What should I do after a car accident?

Vehicle accidents are a common reality for individuals who frequent the roads of Illinois. After being involved in an automobile accident, especially one in which you suffered injury, it is imperative that you take specific steps so that your legal claim can be effective. Your primary objective should be to maximize compensation in the future, and all of your actions should be in preparation for that objective. If you have any questions or concerns after being involved in an accident, speak with a Chicago personal injury lawyer from our firm.

Remember to remain at the scene of the accident because you can be charged with a hit and run crime if you leave. While there, be careful who you speak with and what details you provide. What you say can be used against you later on when you are pursuing compensation. Another step you will also want to take is to exchange contact and insurance information with all parties involved.

You will need to exchange:

  • Names
  • Addresses
  • Phone numbers
  • Driver's license numbers
  • License plate numbers
  • Insurance companies
  • Insurance policy numbers
