Car accidents can happen to even the safest and most experienced of drivers. Crashes and collisions may be the result of road, traffic, and weather conditions, or they may be due to the reckless driving behaviors of other motorists. Unfortunately, even a seemingly minor fender bender can result in car accident injuries that are severe and potentially disabling. Knowing what to do in the event you are involved in an accident can help to protect the health and safety of your passengers, as well as your rights to compensation.
While practicing defensive driving skills and avoiding illegal driving behaviors such as speeding or driving while intoxicated can help to reduce your risks, you cannot always prevent an accident from occurring. In the event of a crash resulting in property damages or injuries, the Illinois Compiled Statutes require drivers to do the following:
Failure to do any of the above could result in fines, penalties on your driver’s license, and even criminal charges.
In addition to following all legal requirements in the aftermath of an accident, doing the following can help protect your rights to compensation:
When dealing with insurance companies, bear in mind that they have a financial stake in either denying your claim or disputing the amount of damages you have suffered. Before making any statements or signing any documents, speak to one of our experienced attorneys first.

We can’t thank you enough for all you have done.
Attorney Michael Massino made me feel so relaxed. I really appreciate all he did for me.
I was represented by your firm in the above referenced matter. I received a letter in the mail seeking my feedback as it related to the services I received. I am happy to take a moment to respond. In all areas I would rate the firm with all 5’s (excellent). The attorney that represented me was Alex Beck. Alex was so easy to talk to, communication was always open, with the steps and processes clearly laid out and understandable to me. Alex is just a very likable great guy, while at the same time being a very knowledgeable professional in his discipline. I have already in the past ,and will continue to in the future, refer your law firm to friends and family. I’d also like to say Donna was of tremendous help and was an absolute pleasure to be assisted by. Thank you, James Nichols
