First, call the police and wait for them to secure the scene. The Aurora Police or Illinois State Police will conduct an initial investigation and fill out your Illinois Highway Patrol Vehicle Crash Report. The report will be used to determine who was at fault and to determine if any traffic laws were violated.
Then, get medical attention, even if you feel okay. You might have a concussion or another type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that requires immediate medical attention. Rush Copley Medical Center is the nearest hospital and is located just south of Aurora.
After being treated for any injuries, your next step should be to call an attorney, ideally before you talk to the insurance company. Reach out to a verified Aurora car accident lawyer today for a free consultation.
