It is important to remain calm and handle any emergency situations first.  Get police and, if needed, medical assistance immediately.  When the police arrive on the scene, it is important to get the officer’s name and contact information as well as the name, address, telephone number and insurance company of the other driver.  Each driver in Illinois involved in a traffic accident must file a crash report if the accident resulted in a death, bodily injury, or more than $1,500 in property damage. An online accident form completed on your phone while at the scene of the accident can be helpful.
