What to Do After an Auto Accident in Illinois?

If you have been involved in an auto accident, you need to take immediate action to ensure that your rights are fully protected. Beginning the gathering of evidence as soon as possible after an accident has occurred is the best guarantee that you will have what is needed to begin building a case that is capable of holding the responsible party accountable for their actions.

Securing skilled legal representation as soon as possible after an accident can also prevent insurance companies from taking advantage of you. Following an accident, insurance companies will begin deploying their extensive resources to try and minimize any potential liability.

Do Not Talk to the Insurance Companies Without an Attorney

The higher the potential value of your claim against them, the greater the effort the insurance companies will put into making sure you receive little or no compensation. For example, you may receive a phone call from an insurance company, which is prefaced as merely information gathering. In reality, the person on the other end of the line is trained at getting you to say information that may be damaging to any claim you might make.

Our skilled attorneys can handle all interactions with the insurance companies for you and help make sure you do not lose your case before you get to the courthouse.
