How To Read Your Illinois Traffic Crash Report
Following a motor vehicle accident, the responding police department will likely complete a Illinois Traffic Crash Report summarizing the occurrence. Although the report itself is usually not admissible as evidence at trial, its significance to your case should not be underestimated. Insurance companies rely on this report when determining the value of your claim. More importantly, the responding police officer may be called to testify in a deposition or at trial years later and will almost certainly rely on the information contained within their report. That's why you - and your attorney - need to understand this information.
