What should I do if I am in an automotive accident?

Be sure to observe these steps:

  • Regardless of how minor you think the auto accident is, you should always report it to the police.
  • Write down names, addresses, and phone numbers of any witnesses in case you need them later, and make sure that the police officer gives you a copy of the driver exchange information form.
  • Take photographs of your vehicle and the other vehicle(s) involved as well as the injuries you sustained.
  • Call your insurance agent and your insurance company immediately for further instructions. If you do not report the automotive accident, the insurance company may deny payment of any claims that you subsequently file.
  • Finally, if involved in an automotive accident, you should call experienced Chicago auto accident attorneys, such as those at Power Rogers & Smith, who have a proven record of success.
