What to Do after an Auto Accident

The success of your case may depend on the steps you take immediately following your collision. After a car accident, there are several things you should do to preserve your legal claims.

Follow our instructions for the injured to protect yourself:

  • Refrain from talking to anyone (including the other driver’s insurance
    company) about the accident except for lawyers/investigators from our office
  • Seek medical treatment as soon as possible and return frequently to your
    doctor with any issues that arise; never minimize your complaints
  • Keep detailed records of any time taken off work as a result of the accident, lost wages/income, medical bills (including medication costs), and other losses caused by the accident
  • Wait to have your car or any other damaged property repaired until after our team has had a chance to examine the property, photograph it, and document evidence of the damage
  • Take down any witnesses names, phone numbers, and statements, if possible and provide them to our attorneys as soon as possible
  • Take photos of the scene of the accident (if possible), as well as any photos of your injuries and/or treatment (again, if possible), as these can be used as evidence by our team
  • Allow your health insurance company to pay any hospital and/or medical bills; do not wait for a settlement or verdict to begin paying these bills

Our Approach to Handling Your Car Accident Case

You do not have to deal with your car accident alone. Our Chicago car accident lawyers can thoroughly investigate to determine if another person or organization is liable for your injuries. If so, we can aggressively pursue financial compensation for you.

In many cases, we will visit the accident scene to gather evidence and take photographs. We will talk to witnesses, obtain the police report, and, when necessary, bring in an expert to reconstruct the accident. We won’t make you jump through hoops to understand what’s going on. We strive to make the process as simple and straightforward as possible. We can take care of the investigation, the paperwork, and the red tape so that you can focus on healing.

We have won compensation for our clients in all types of motor vehicle accident cases, including those involving:

  • Freeway accidents
  • Distracted drivers
  • Cellphone use while driving
  • SUV rollovers
  • Hit and run accidents
  • Interstate auto accidents
  • Red light accidents
  • Accidents resulting in paralysis
  • Speeding accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Head-on collisions and T-bone side impacts
  • Uninsured motorists

Auto insurance companies are supposed to protect you in unexpected events—we can work to ensure that your insurance company lives up to its obligations.

I’ve had to know a few attorneys in my life and Jon was the best.

Unfortunately, I got badly injured at an athletic job. Run by a company that didn’t care about me. I needed an attorney and Woodruff, Johnson and Evans was recommended to me by a family member. That small gesture ended up being the best legal advice I ever received. Jon Walker defended me and made sure […]

Recommendation to Blessing

I had a lawyer working on my insurance claim that was extremely unprofessional and after 8 months of getting nowhere, I fired him. Dexter Evans was recommended to me by a family member.
