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.

Great attorney sure did a fantastic job on my divorce HIGHLY RECOMMEND
As it was a long road, the outcome was what it should have been. 50/50 should be the starting point of a divorce when kids are involved, not something parents should have to fight for. Thanks Sandy & Roy for everything!
There is not enough space to accurately give justice to the gratefulness I have for Mr. Sabuco and his staff. So let me just say – I am grateful for the small things, big things and everything in between.
