Q

I was injured in a motor vehicle accident in Northern Illinois and immediately taken to the hospital. How can I obtain information about the accident?

A

While obtaining information at the scene of a car accident in Illinois is important, the Northern Illinois car crash attorneys at The Fisk & Monteleone Law Firm know that it is not always possible. A car accident victim should never sacrifice critical medical treatment in order to document a motor vehicle crash.

Our Rockford auto accident lawyers can obtain the information required to build a strong case. One critical piece of information to start with is the police report.

What does a police report include?

 

  • Names and contact information of all parties involved in the crash
  • Accident location and time of the accident
  • Weather conditions
  • Damage to the vehicle(s)
  • Insurance information
  • Preliminary investigation results including the police officer’s opinion as to how the accident occurred
