Required Documents after a Car Accident

Besides having an Illinois driver’s license and registration, all drivers at the site of an accident must present proof of active insurance.

Failure to present these three requirements may result in the following:

  • Issuance of tickets
  • Court fees
  • Attorney fees after a hearing

Driving is risky and all drivers must be able to meet the financial responsibilities that Illinois mandates.

Insurance after a Car Accident

The defendant’s insurance company will contact you for a recorded statement and attempt to use that statement against you to mitigate their exposure in paying out your claim. They will also ask for a signed authorization allowing them to view your medical records. It is important you know and understand your rights early on following an accident as this time is extremely crucial in determining the path your claim takes.

Take a look at several situations involving insurance:

  • The Other Person Is Not Insured or Is Minimally Insured
    Unfortunately, some people drive in Illinois without insurance or do not have adequate coverage to fully compensate you for your injuries. In situations like these, maximum recovery will depend on the extent of coverage you have as of the date of the accident.
  • The Other Person Is Not Insured & You Do Not Carry Uninsured Coverage:
    If the defendant does not carry insurance and you do not carry uninsured coverage, you may find yourself with overwhelming medical bills, severe injuries and no insurance coverage to recover from. If the policy limits of the defendant's insurance do not fully compensate you for your injuries and you do not carry underinsured coverage, you may again find yourself with a heap of problems.
