Car accidents occur every day in Chicago. From seatbelts to turn signals, safety measures are designed to prevent accidents and/or injuries when a car accident occurs. After a car accidentdoes occur, however, it’s important to follow these steps:
- If anyone is injured, call 911 and seek medical attention.
- Notify the police. In Illinois, the law requires you to contact the police if there is anything beyond minor property damage or if someone is injured
- Get information from the scene of the accident. You will want the names, addresses, and phone numbers of everyone involved in the accident, including the driver of the other car, passengers, responding police officers, and witnesses.
- Protect your rights. Following a car accident, you will likely have to deal with property damage claims, medical bills, lost wages, other out-of-pocket expenses, and multiple insurance adjusters. You may be wondering who is on your side. Don’t jeopardize your rights without speaking with a personal injury lawyer first. Knowing your rights will ensure you the best protection under the law.
