Understand the Value of Your Illinois Crash Report
When you are injured in a car accident caused by another driver’s negligence, you are required to prove the cause and financial impact of the accident. One piece of evidence that could support your case is the police report. When a collision results in any deaths, injuries, or property damage that exceeds $1,500, you are required to notify law enforcement, per 625 ILCS 5/11-406.
The police report will contain information that could help prove the validity of your claim, the cause of your injuries, and the cause of your vehicle’s damage.
The police report will also give your lawyer important information regarding:
- The identity of the at-fault driver
- The contact information for their insurer
- Statements from any witnesses
- Descriptions of each involved vehicle
- Diagrams and investigative notes
When you call The Kryder Law Group, LLC, we can explain the importance of the police report and the information it could provide.

Personal Injury Claimants Have Two Years To Seek Compensation Via a Lawsuit
735 ILCS 5/13-202 generally limits your right to seek compensation via a personal injury lawsuit to two years.
Running out of time to file your lawsuit could mean:
- You will not be able to file your lawsuit at all.
- The at-fault driver will not have to compensate you for your losses.
- The financial impact of the accident could become your responsibility.
Two years can pass quickly while you focus on recovering from the aftermath of the collision. Your lawyer can alert you to any pending deadlines that could affect your case. If a lawsuit is deemed necessary to recover damages, your lawyer can handle the filing and paperwork involved with that action.
While you focus on your physical recovery, we focus on your financial recovery.
