Preparing Before Calling A Chicago Car Accident Attorney
The chances are that you or your loved one is a victim of an accident by the time you are thinking about calling a lawyer. The confusion that comes with such misfortunes added to the pain is enough to make you not think clearly. What to do immediately is what most people always ask, and Willens & Baez has the answers.
Call The Police
One of the most important things you should never forget to do after a car accident is to inform the police. Even when it is clear, the other party was responsible or when you incur little or minor damages and injuries. Reason being that the records the police will take either in your absence or presence will come to play a vital role in your compensation suit.

Whether your injuries are minor or severe, the next big thing to do after a car accident is to get medical assistance. You may never know the extent of your injuries until a doctor examines you to conclude as reasonably as possible. Remember, the medical records will also inform part of your suit.
Depending on your state at the time of the accident, try your level best to take as necessary information as possible from the scene—details like the defendant’s name, plate number, insurer name, and so forth.
