Car accidents happen all the time. Our Chicago personal injury law firm believes it is important to always be prepared in case it happens to you.
If you are in a car accident, you may initially feel flustered or scared, but it is important to try to remain calm and remember that this is the best time to capture information about the accident. Here is a checklist that you can place in your glove compartment for easy reference if an accident occurs.
You’ll then want to report the accident to your insurance company. They may have many questions and/or ask for a statement from you so have your notes accessible and be prepared to spend a good amount of time on the phone.
