On Saturday, January 5, two Chicago police officers were injured when their vehicle was struck by a vehicle believed to have been stolen. After the collision, the driver fled the scene, leaving the officers with severe but non-life threatening injuries. For Illinois drivers, the hit and run collision served as a reminder that some drivers will attempt to flee the scene of an accident even when it involves law enforcement.  

After a hit and run accident, one must act quickly and calmly to help ensure law enforcement officials are equipped with the requisite information to find the perpetrator.

Illinios auto accident lawyer, Illinois car crash attorney, Illnois personal injury attorney,No matter what the circumstances surrounding a car accident may be, one thing is certain: Everyone is stunned in the moments following a collision. Whether you were alone at the time of the impact or you were the passenger in someone else’s car, shock takes over as you begin to process what has just taken place. Even the most minor fender-bender can wreak havoc on one’s nerves, but minor and severe accidents alike all require the driver - and any passengers involved - to be vigilant immediately after the crash. More often than not, your attentiveness in the moments following the accident can make a big difference when it comes to protecting your rights later on.

Acting Quickly

Understandably, not every driver is able to make sharp observations or think critically in the moments directly after a crash. Due to the shock and any immediate needs that demand your attention, such as moving the car off the highway or tending to injuries, you may not have the chance to assess the scene and take notes. A few simple observations, however, can help tremendously in your case, should you experience injury of any kind.
