After a Crash, Seek Counsel Immediately – The ISBA Advises

Question:  How soon after an auto accident should one seek legal counsel? Answer: As soon as possible, especially if anyone sustained injuries, if the other driver was under-insured or uninsured, or if you and the driver are disputing who was at fault. Because the police and insurance companies are likely to start asking questions immediately, having a lawyer at your side to handle those questions can help ensure that you do not say anything which may hamper your defense.     For more information about Illinois law, visit If you have a legal question, send it to   Illinois Law Now is a series of newspaper and internet posts prepared by the Illinois State Bar Association that address legal issues of interest to the public.
