Many victims of car accidents in Illinois do not know what to do and not do following a crash. Unfortunately, many people end up making critical mistakes that ultimately hurt the value of their personal injury claims.

In order to avoid making a costly mistake, you should know that the biggest mistake people make following an auto accident in Illinois is talking to the insurance company for the other side. Even your own insurance company will ask you questions about the accident and your injuries. You should know that insurance adjusters are trained professionals who are looking for ways to minimize their liability. You may not even know you are injured following an accident, as some injuries take days or weeks to become apparent. For this reason, you should never tell an insurance adjuster that you are not injured without first seeing a doctor and speaking with a Collinsville accident attorney.

To make sure you get the best financial compensation following your Illinois auto accident, contact a skilled Madison and St. Clair County personal injury lawyer at the Giacoletto Law Firm for a free consultation at 618-346-8841 or online at
